Belfast City Hall Installs LED Lighting

Belfast City Hall Installs LED LightingBelfast City Hall has become the first building in Europe to install a new 'intelligent' lighting system.

The new LED floodlighting at the famous Belfast landmark is also the biggest single building project of its kind in Europe.

The Council says it will help reduce both the energy bill and CO2 emissions.

Belfast City Hall is one of seven European buildings chosen to take part in the EU's ILLUMINATE pilot project, which will see new solid state lighting systems installed on other landmarks such as the world famous waterfront in Genoa.

Belfast will be the only city to use the new 'IntelliPower' technology, devised by Philips Electronics.

The technology uses 433 light fittings, each of which can be individually controlled, meaning City Hall can be illuminated by up to 16m different colour options.

It is estimated the system will save around £14,000 on the Council's annual electricity bill and reduce carbon emissions by 90 tonnes.

Belfast City Council has agreed to light up City Hall on specific days to mark important cultural events for Northern Ireland's citizens.


It will be lit green for St. Patrick’s Day, orange for 12 July, red for St. Valentine's, red and yellow for Chinese New Year, red and white for Polish independence day and rainbow for Gay Pride.

Lord Mayor of Belfast, Alderman Gavin Robinson, commented: "City Hall is not only the civic centerpiece of Belfast, but it is also one of the most iconic and instantly recognised buildings in the whole of Europe: for it to be selected as the first major structure in Europe to use this revolutionary technology is a major coup for the city.

"The fact that this new lighting system, while making the City Hall a more attractive and welcoming sight for everyone, will also reduce both our electricity consumption and carbon emissions is a clear demonstration of our ongoing investment in making Belfast a better, brighter, cleaner and more efficient city, today, tomorrow and for future generations."
