Smart public lighting
LED lights in every street lamp in the city centre that is on the World Heritage List of UNESCO. Lamps that dim at night and turn on when people cycle or drive past. In the European research project Smart Light Concepts (SLIC), researchers from Avans University of Applied Sciences and Portsmouth University explore, together with city and provincial authorities in 4 countries (Belgium, France, the Netherlands and United Kingdom), different solutions for reducing carbon emissions from public lighting.
Webinar: SLIC Dutch National conference
At Thursday 28 January 2021 the Dutch SLIC National Conference will take place. Kees van Aert, Alderman for the Public Area of Etten-Leur, Paul Stamsnijder (Reputation Group), Marco Sodderland (Motivaction) and Arthur Klink (Public Lighting Netherlands) share their experiences and knowledge on stakeholder engagement and public lighting. In its rural areas, the municipality Etten-Leur has investigated how to create as much support as possible among citizens for the renewal of street lighting. Over the past 2 years the municipality has gained important insights and experiences how to engage with its citizens.
The conference, which is taking place digitally due to the corona pandemic, is part of the European Smart Light Concepts (SLIC) project, funded from the Interreg 2 Seas program. In the project, 9 European partners work together to increase the use of sustainable public lighting concepts and carbon reduction. The conference is in Dutch.
