OSRAM once again expanded its production of green lighting products in Foshan. On July 3, 2009, OSRAM, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Siemens, held a ceremony for the completion of two new plants in its Foshan factory today. The new plant will significantly improve the production and R & D capacity of OSRAM energy-saving and environmental protection lighting products to meet the growing demand of the Asia Pacific market, especially the Chinese market. By 2010, the total investment of the new plant is expected to reach 400million yuan. At that time, with the further enhancement of green production capacity and R & D strength, Foshan plant will become one of OSRAM's largest production and R & D bases in the world.

statistics show that China's lighting power consumption in 2008 reached more than 400 billion kwh, close to five times the annual power generation of the Three Gorges power station. This figure is expected to grow at an annual rate of 13% to 14%, and will reach 500billion kwh by 2010. In order to achieve the goal of saving 10% of lighting power by 2010, the Chinese government has vigorously implemented the "green lighting project" in recent years, and plans to promote 150million efficient lighting products through financial subsidies from 2008 to 2010, in order to promote energy conservation and environmental protection. As one of the suppliers of the government project, OSRAM will provide 14.5 million green lighting products to China during 2008 and 2009.
