Hungary’s Esterháza Palace installs energy saving Verbatim LED Lighting.


Esterháza Palace in Hungary is one of the largest most beautiful baroque buildings in Europe. The property was originally commissioned by Prince Nikolaus Esterházy in the 18th century and has an average of 80,000 visitors a year. There are 126 rooms, many of which are lit by antique crystal chandeliers. To improve their visitor experience


and reduce energy consumption and costs, they recently had a major restoration to this iconic building. The palace’s executive management team together with Hungary’s National Trust of Monuments decided to replace incandescent bulbs and halogen lamps with modern LED lighting. Verbatim were chosen to install their high performance LED lighting. This replacement lighting is now in


20 of the palace’s exhibition rooms, 12 apartment suites and their connecting foyers and halls. Verbatim LED lighting has also been fitted in the residential suites of the Prince and Princess, the mirror-walled Assembly Hall, and the Music Hall where Joseph Haydn the Austrian composer first presented many of his classical compositions. There has been over 1,250 incandescent candle bulbs replaced with LEDs and more than 200 droplet and spotlights in other fixtures. In comparison to the previous bulbs, the 3.7W Verbatim LED candles consume less than a fifth of the energy while offering a brightness at 90 lumens. These LED bulbs can last 30 times

longer and for up to 30,000 hours so the maintenance costs will be dramatically reduced. Esterháza Palace management has


been very satisfied with this decision to switch to Verbatim LED lighting. “With the substantial money saved each year from the lighting upgrade, we can choose to invest more towards the preservation of the palace and improve the services we offer to visitors. It is comforting to know the palace has reduced its carbon footprint yet the baroque spaces shine as well as they ever have before,” Ágota Dobó, Deputy Director of Hungary’s National Trust of Monuments commented. “It was an honour to provide an


energy saving lighting solution to a special place with such a magnificent historical past,” said Jeanine Chrobak-Kando, EUMEA Business Development Manager – Lighting, Verbatim. “Verbatim has once again proved its high performance and reliable lighting solutions are the best fit for prestigious properties such as Esterháza Palace. You can be assured of quality thanks to our parent company Mitsubishi Chemical which has over 50 years of expertise in developing state-of-the-art lighting technology.”
