World’s Largest Street Light Replacement Programme Launched in New Delhi

Two Hundred Thousand Street Lights Replaced with LED street lights in the South Delhi Municipal Corporation Area

India: World's largest LED street light replacement project was completed by South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) in South Delhi wherein two hundred thousand conventional street lights have been replaced with energy efficient LEDs. Furthermore, second phase of the project which plans to install 75,000 more LED lights in the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) area has been launched. This phase specially focuses on the installation of LED light in parks, dark spots and high mast lights. A dedicated Street Light National Programme (SLNP) app for immediate resolution of the complaints about faulty street lights was also launched.

This initiative under the Street Lighting National Programme (SLNP) being implemented by the Energy Efficiency Services Limited of Ministry of Power, Government of India, is expected to save 61 crore units of electricity per year, thereby reducing the electricity bill by 54 per cent. The installation of LED street lights in Delhi will help curb release of carbon dioxide gas in the atmosphere by 44,000 tonne per year.

TechSci Research depicts that a significant amount of energy is consumed in New Delhi for street lighting purposes. The replacement of conventional lights to LED will help in reducing the energy consumption and would also increase the penetration of LEDs in New Delhi. Moreover, due to high life of LED related products, the replacement demand for street lights is also expected to reduce at a significant rate. The companies offering LED street lights are also set to benefit through government contracts.

According to a recently published report by TechSci Research, “India LED Lighting Market By Type, By Application, By End Use Sector, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2011 - 2021”, LED lighting market in India is projected to register a CAGR of over 30% during 2016-2021, due to increasingly affordable prices of LED lights coupled with implementation of LED bulbs distribution scheme by the government of India at subsidized rates. Demand for LED lights in India is predominantly concentrated in the South and North regions due to high population density, increasing urbanization, rising number of government initiatives that encourage use of LED lights, etc. In 2015, LED lighting market in India was dominated by LED bulbs and lamps, followed by LED batten lights; and this trend is forecast to continue through 2021. Philips, Surya Roshni, Havells, Syska LED and Osram are few of the leading players in India LED lighting market. Outdoor lighting applications, which includes street lights, lights in parks, traffic lights, garage lights, parking lots and other public places, accounted for a majority revenue share in India LED lighting market in 2015.
