Upgrading street and road lighting to more efficient technology can offer huge benefits – lower energy costs, controllability, improved landscape aesthetics and reduced light pollution, as well as enhanced safety for pedestrians and motorists. 

Embarking on a street lighting project has many challenges, such as ensuring sound system design and placement, avoiding light pollution, and ensuring the needs of residents are met; but when done correctly, a switch to LED street lighting and an appropriate control strategy can provide significant cost savings in the current climate of council funding pressures, as well as contributing to carbon reduction targets.

To address this, the Premium Light Pro project, in partnership with the Lighting Industry Academy is offering a free one-day workshop with expert trainers that will help set you on your way to planning and implementing a successful street lighting upgrade.  The session also includes a copy of the Premium Light Pro Outdoor lighting guidance and procurement criteria brochures.

Who should attend?

This training course is suitable for a wide audience, including staff that have no previous knowledge or experience with lighting. In particular it will be useful to those working in public sector procurement, sustainability or energy management.

Places are limited to ensure delegates get the most out of the day, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to come to the Academy and learn from the best in the industry.

Topics to be covered

  • Introduction to LED street lighting
  • Applications and solutions to different challenges
  • Design considerations for different areas
  • Control systems and strategies
  • Procurement, funding and making a business case

The Energy Saving Trust are running this workshop in association with the LIA at the Copthorne Hotel in Birmingham. Find more details and book your place here.
