Can a deep-sea fish light the way to more sustainable cities?

Innovating for sustainability

Did you know that streetlights produce more than 1.1 million metric tonnes of CO₂ each year in the UK alone? That makes the global impact of lighting roads astronomical. Now, the natural light produced by bioluminescent deep-sea fish is inspiring research into zero-emission ways to light our cities.
