World Diabetes Day highlighted with light in Holland

Every year on November 14, prominent buildings around the world are illuminated in blue in honor of the global campaign for World Diabetes Day. In 2010, the Hague, the seat of the Dutch government and parliament, the Supreme Court, and the Council of State, chose to participate and looked for a temporary lighting solution to illuminate the exterior of this important government building.

After being presented with many solutions, the Ministry of General Affairs chose Color Kinetics ColorReach Powercore high-performance architectural floodlights for the installation. The low energy consumption of the LED solution was the main factor in their choice.

For the temporary installation, thirty-five ColorReach Powercore luminaires were placed around the perimeter of the building, each using less than 300 watts per fixture. The LED solution provided a 30% energy savings compared to previous years when traditional technologies had been used.
