Valentin Littera, Head of the Lighting Department, City of Bucharest
This presentation will offer an overview of Bucharest’s strategic lighting plan and its general objectives from street lighting to architectural lighting. It will address the strategy implemented by the City for the rehabilitation and modernisation of the public lighting infrastructure. The strategic lighting plan aims to develop integrated solutions and systems for a coherent approach to public lighting – the conditions for the implementation of a “Smart city” concept. Highlighting the cultural and urban heritage of the city through architectural lighting is also one of the priorities of the strategic lighting plan.
