Webinar: Smart city street lighting
Join the experts from IPWEA for a free Future Ready webinar session hosted by ASCA Vice President Brook Dixon. The Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA), the peak body that advises local, state and federal governments on best practice engineering, has taken a leadership role on smart street lighting.
IPWEA’s recently released Model LED Public Lighting Specification and Model Public Lighting Controls Specification are described as a game changer for accelerating the rollout of LED lighting and smart controls across Australia and New Zealand.
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 programs 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) program is a two-year initiative that aims to change this, through forming partnerships with governments, industry associations and industry partners.
