Public lighting is one of the public services all municipal authorities must provide in the areas they administrate, in order to make them safer and more accessible for inhabitants.
Public lighting mostly refers to street light systems, which are available in a number of forms, from the most traditional (lampposts, wall lights, etc.) to cutting-edge, low visual impact units.
The technical development of street light systems has been determined by the need for local authorities to fulfil two requirements: limiting energy consumption and reducing light pollution.
The most innovative technical solutions involve the use LED light units, which can be managed remotely. This Smart Lighting technology means units can be managed in a more innovative and efficient way, enabling users to:
reduce energy consumption by around 65% and generate a further 20% of savings by adjusting light output according to real vehicle traffic needs;
manage units more efficiently through longer life cycle and reduced labour requirements;
improve light quality through the greater colour rendering provided by the new sources that enable excellent colour perception.
