To tackle the global energy and environment crisis, Schréder, the leading independent outdoor lighting solution provider, and Sunna Design, the expert company in solar lighting and energy management, are partnering to leverage the benefits of solar-powered lighting. Through this partnership, Schreder will propose a full range of solar lighting solutions to its customers, with a portfolio of street lights powered by Sunna Design solutions. With Schréder’s expertise in using light to its fullest potential and Sunna Design’s innovation and know-how in solar energy management, the partnership is poised to make a meaningful contribution to the global sustainability effort.
The partners aim to provide affordable and sustainable lighting solutions that promote equity by creating safe and comfortable environments after dark for all citizens, even if the electricity grid is not available.
