IPWEA is Lighting the Way with new street lighting video series

05 Mar 2018

 Do you know the latest views in the controversial debate on street lighting colour temperature? What about how to make a compelling business case for smart controls, or how to minimise glare?

These are just some of the issues addressed in the Institute of Public Works Engineering's (IPWEA) Lighting the Way Series -  a collection of 10 videos featuring interviews with some of the street lighting and smart control industry's preeminent voices. 

IPWEA will release the series later this month as part of its highly successful Street Lighting and Smart Controls (SLSC) Programme, a Federal Government-supported, all-of-industry initiative created to measurably increase the rollout of LED and smart controlled street lighting in Australia and New Zealand. The SLSC Council includes bodies such as the Lighting Council of Australia, Energy Networks Australia and the Australian Local Government Association.

The videos feature advice and insights from SLSC Council members: Philips, Light Source Solutions, Gerard Lighting and Cisco, and Technical Advisory Group members: Broadspectrum, Telensa, Electrix, OrangeTek, ENE.HUB and Schréder.

The series provides guidance on questions like ‘Should we invest in LEDs now or wait?', ‘Will buying luminaires in bulk save money?', ‘Should street lights be dimmed during off-peak hours', and ‘What's the future of the multi-function pole?

"Through our work with public lighting buyers, vendors, contractors, financiers and advisors we have seen a real need for advice in these areas," IPWEA CEO Robert Fuller said. 

"The Lighting the Way Series is an opportunity to hear from the experts in the industry on the topics that matter to you, so that you can move your LED and smart control deployments forward with confidence.

"We sincerely thank our SLSC partners who generously gave their time and expert insights for this project."
