Innovative LED lighting in cities: results from the ILLUMINATE project

Lighting accounts for 14% of the energy consumption in Europe. LED technologies are emerging but still need some strong proven case studies to be rolled out at a large scale.

To this end the EC (through the ICT-PSP Programme) co-financed 2 demonstration projects for lighting prestigious areas and buildings around Europe reaching out to more than 13 million visitors annually. The pilot projects demonstrate the high quality and flexibility LED offers as well as the energy savings and pollution reduction it brings about.

The focus of our event is to present the results of the ILLUMINATE project and the energy savings – on average 60% – achieved by the 7 pilots that have installed innovative LED systems.

The location of our pilot projects could not have a higher profile:

  • City Hall of Belfast
  • Rotterdam Zoo
  • Experimentarium (Danish Science Center)
  • CretAquarium
  • Lithuanian Sea Museum
  • Porto Antico Genoa
  • Aquarium of Genoa

The solution-providers that helped make the project a success will also present: the lighting design, the energy costs modelling and the decision-making tool for innovative lighting.

The video below presents one of the pilots: the Rotterdam Zoo, and you can find all the others on our Youtube Channel:
