Sometimes, technologies come along that make everything that came before utterly obsolete.
In a few short years, LED street lighting and smart controls have become the clear choice of technology for street lighting deployments. Large-scale replacement programmes are underway worldwide, as governments and consumers begin to recognise the superior financial, environmental, safety and liveability benefits this technology provides.
Despite this, the uptake of LEDs and smart controls across Australia and New Zealand’s streets has been slow. IPWEA’s Street Lighting and Smart Controls (SLSC) programme is a two-year initiative that aims to change this, through forming partnerships with governments, industry associations and industry partners.
IPWEA’s vision for the SLSC programme is to see near-full deployment of LED street lighting and smart controls across Australia and New Zealand by 2027.
