BMW Production Hall: New Lighting Standard Replaces Old Lighting
WAGO’s newly developed lighting concept reduces the power consumed by lights within BMW’s production facilities by more than a quarter.
For decades, BMW has been a household name among car and motorcycle enthusiasts alike, and now the same holds true for building and automation engineering experts. The former associate the brand with innovative motors and vehicles, while the latter is impressed by the new lighting control system, which lowers the energy costs of this established Munich-based company by around 30 percent. BMW is gradually expanding this lighting solution, which is based on WAGO components, to make it a company-wide standard as part of its sustainability strategy.
Environmentally responsible action is only really effective when both sides of the coin are taken into account: the product itself, and its entire development process. BMW gives very high priority to ecological and social issues; the company has been a permanent member of the “Dow Jones Sustainability Group Index” since 1999. And to ensure that it will also remain on the stock index for companies exercising sustainable business practices in the future, the Munich-based company is continuously working on programs for active energy optimization.
