Cities in South Baltic region examine LEDs in public space
The EU project “LED – Light in Public Space”, which aims to provide facts that help municipalities convert their public lighting to LED technology, involves 15 partners from the South Baltic Region.
The project, which runs from 2009 to 2012, is currently implementing various LED pilot initiatives, such as self-sufficient lamp posts in Oskarshamm (Sweden), an art installation consisting of translucent pebbles made of epoxy resin with a built in LED lighting system in Gdansk (Poland), LED test lighting in a schoolyard in Wismar (Germany), and using citizens as “Light Pilots” in Kalmar (Sweden) to get inhabitant feedback on various LED luminaires.
The project will be holding its LED Academy Seminar on light and urban planning from the 27th to the 29th of March 2012 in Wismar. LUCI and PLUS members are invited to attend the open sessions of the event.
