Today, franchise chains, department stores, food and textile supermarkets and hypermarkets are facing many obstacles to becoming efficient. New consumption habits and increasingly more aggressive competition has required those responsible for these businesses to continuously look for ways that enable them to optimise their management, bring down operating costs, create a special environment for the brand and display the products in the best light.

In terms of profitability, many retail trade and high volume retail sector experts have highlighted the role of good lighting, and thanks to LED technology, it is possible to reduce the operating costs of commercial premises.


Faced with of the increasing price of energy, small businesses are finding it difficult to balance their books, as they cannot simply increase their turnover. In such cases, LED offers an opportunity to achieve a marked reduction on the electricity bill, bringing it down by up to 60% compared to traditional lighting systems. Similarly, maintenance and the service life of the lamps are factors that must also be taken into account, and once again, LED is the best option as it lasts much longer than former solutions.

LED lighting moreover plays a decisive role in the creation of a special environment. Clothing brands are increasingly based on the “Visual Merchandiser” to create a unique retail experience in their shops. Thanks to LED solutions for retail sale, shoppers are placed at the centre of a world that reflects the value and positioning of the products.

Thanks to the chromacity of GE’s LED solutions, this improved visual perception is also very important in the area of food sales, as it can optimise the presentation of fruit, seafood or meat.


LED luminaires are among the most efficient from the energy standpoint, significantly reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Thanks to the extensive range of solutions from GE Lighting for the sales areas of both large hypermarkets and small retailers, many clients have already put into place systems that have allowed them to reduce their operating costs.

The natural food brand Vitamin Cottage, specialising in the distribution of organic products, installed the LED Albeo solution in its supermarkets. This decision has saved more than €200,000 per year, as well as improving the fruit and vegetable display.

Another example is the Intermarché supermarket in the city of Frontón in France, that took the decision to install GE Lighting’s Infusión modules in three of the most demanding areas in terms of product development: fruit and vegetables, wine and textiles. Not only has a heightened visual perception been the determining factor in opting for this solution; it has also brought down energy consumption by 50%, with a considerable reduction in maintenance and an appreciable improvement in terms of system safety.

In line with its energy efficiency and eco-sustainability policy, the Miroglio Group has extended the use of its Gewiss Smart [4] technology to its M2LOG Logistic Centre, thereby making it a benchmark for integrated logistics in the textile industry and an avant-garde centre as regards the management of systems and classification technologies to handle goods in stock.

To cover every interior lighting requirement, Gewiss has recently launched its Gewiss Smart [4] system, an innovative technology with a minimalist style that improves the characteristics of LED lamps. It is versatile, efficient, sustainable and extremely lightweight as well as being easy to install and maintain thanks to its horizontal and vertical modularity.

The functionality of this device additionally guarantees optimum performance in every lighting application of the logistics area and its multiple configurations make Smart [4] a strategic tool that minimises O&M costs and maximises lighting performance. Read more…

El alumbrado público representa en torno al 30% de la factura energética promedio de un ayuntamiento, ya que la iluminación es una ávida consumidora de recursos. Y alcanza niveles máximos cuando además las luminarias no operan de la forma más eficiente, suponiendo un enorme derroche de caudales públicos que podrían dedicarse a usos mejores. Dado que las autoridades locales de todo el mundo necesitan reducir las emisiones de carbono y los costes operacionales, la eficiencia energética, como por ejemplo las actuaciones en iluminación, son ya en una tendencia paneuropea que puede llegar a suponer un ahorro energético de hasta el 70%. De acuerdo con los expertos, el paso a la utilización de LEDs es inevitable debido a factores socioeconómicos cada vez más evidentes a nivel mundial. En el siguiente artículo se recogen dos ejemplos de ciudades en Europa y Latinoamérica, que están apostando por la iluminación de la mano de GE Lighting.

El ayuntamiento húngaro de Balatonfüred, como parte de su estrategia ecológica, ha cambiado su sistema de iluminación antiguo por la solución de alumbrado público LED de GE Lighting, con un aumento de la eficiencia energética y un bajo mantenimiento.

Balatonfüred es la primera ciudad de Europa en instalar alumbrado urbano LED de GE. La mayoría de farolas actualmente en uso necesitaban ser actualizadas con urgencia. En total se han instalado 1.400 luminarias de GE, que de acuerdo con los cálculos preliminares generarán un ahorro de hasta un 55% del coste energético, por lo que ya se está planeando extenderla a toda la ciudad.
