The eleventh edition of the Lausanne Lumières festival begins next Thursday. Until December 24, it will be projected in a reduced format to reduce its power consumption by more than 60% due to the current energy context. Consequences: The number of installations has been halved (four instead of eight), the duration has been reduced to three weeks instead of four and the timetable has been shortened by one hour from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. instead of midnight.
“Aware of the importance of energy sobriety during this period of uncertainty about energy availability, the Lausanne Lumières Festival has decided to implement a list of drastic measures to reduce its consumption by more than 60%,” the organizers write.
This 2022 edition is powered 100% by a green electricity from Lausanne Industrial Services (SIL), composed exclusively of local and regional energies and mainly of Lausanne photovoltaic solar energy, as they also indicate.
The facades of the Palais de Rumine, the Bel-Air Tower and the UBS building in St-François are illuminated every evening by new projections by Lausanne and international artists, those in charge further specify. The traditional swings of the Place de la Louve will also be back with a new light composition.
