The Philips company wants to revolutionize urban lighting by the Light Blossom concept, a pillar of street lighting based on solar and wind energy.

During the day, Light Blossom works as a flower, opening it’s “petals” (solar panels) to capture the energy of the sun. As the source of light moving to the sky, the pillar move it panels depending on this, as sunflower, for maximum efficiency.

When the sky is overcast and are windy conditions, transform it’s petals in a wind turbine. At sunset, the pillar light, lights automatically and works on the basis of sensors, energy consumption being optimized, as Light Blossom shine at maximum capacity only when it feels peoples around.

According to Philips representatives,  Light Blossom uses only half of the energy that a traditional street lightingr consume.
