PLUS perspective on LED lighting strategies in urban spaces
How can cities incorporate LEDs into their lighting strategies? What are the implications in terms of planning, procurement, and financing? How can they deal with the issue of social acceptance? Most of all,what could be the most appropriate timeline?
The PLUS conference on “LED Lighting Strategies for Urban Spaces”, held on the 20th of June during the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2012, will bring together the knowledge on the use of LEDs in outdoor lighting as well as a preview of some of the first conclusions on the topic from the PLUS project.
“It is important to discuss the challenges that confront cities as they consider using LEDs, and this is what we aim to do at this conference,” says Rik van Stiphout, PLUS Project Manager.
The conference will offer a wide variety of perspectives on LED projects and research with speakers such as Paolo Bertoldi from the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC), Michael Ziegler from the Photonics Unit of the European Commission, as well as presentations from other European projects such as BLISS and LED – Light in Public Space.
