How to plan, develop and adapt in Stavanger and the region
as we go from Oil City to Smart City

Stavanger has evolved from a shipping and canning city to Norway’s oil capital. This has affected the city. The decline in oil prices has given both Stavanger and the region major challenges. Challenges provide new opportunities – Stavanger and the region have chosen to meet the challenges by focusing on smart solutions. Could this be the new oil? A roadmap has been prepared for Stavanger’s work towards becoming a smart city. Stavanger has also set high climate targets. The use of clean energy in the transport sector will be important to achieve these goals.

Public lighting in Stavanger – history, management, operation/maintenance, strategy, projects

Stavanger put in place its first street lighting in 1865. The municipality later established a power station to secure electricity for the city’s needs including street lighting. The municipality manages street lighting, while operation and maintenance is carried out by an inter-municipal company. The municipality has prepared a technical lighting standard and a comprehensive replacement programme is underway for LED. Lighting includes not only street lighting, but also other lighting projects which is an important part of the lighting strategy for Stavanger’s city centre.

13:10 A lighting strategy for the city centre of Stavanger: process and results

  • Nevena Kovacevic, Lighting designer, Zenisk

In 2005, Stavanger was one of the first cities in Norway to have a lighting masterplan. 15 years later, the revised lighting masterplan of Stavanger shows how the city can welcome change, while enhancing its identity, safety and wellbeing in synergy with an urban development that emphasises walkability and pedestrian experience. Simultaneously, Stavanger’s objectives to reduce light pollution and CO2 emissions are met by a better distribution of light, planned contrasts with darkness and use of smart city controls.

13:30 Lighting of the main square and Tivolifjellet

  • Halvor Næss, Lighting designer, Halvor Næss

Torget Square is an important location for concerts and markets. After its renovation, it was criticised for being too dull. The dynamic lighting project at Torget was installed to bring more life to the Square with the lighting changing automatically through the seasons. Tivolifjellet is a tiny little park overlooking Breiavannet. Here, there is subtle use of coloured light combined with a low light level.
