Dynamic light – toward dynamic, intelligent and energy efficient urban lighting

The project is a how-to-do demonstration of how a city can get an energy efficient lighting, starting from the idea to the analysis, Geographic Information Systems data mining, strategy development, financial models, procurement rules, implementation and evaluation

The project is a how-to-do demonstration of how a city can get an energy efficient lighting, starting from the idea to the analysis, Geographic Information Systems data mining, strategy development, financial models, procurement rules, implementation and evaluation. This goes hand in hand with a pilot demonstration of investments to increase the acceptance of energy efficient lighting among end users and town planners, improving the quality of dynamic light and adapting it to social needs.

The project explores different public lighting situations that are typical for European municipalities. The core idea is that the technical aspect of lighting needs to be better connected to urban planning aspects in order to adapt it to technological possibilities. Especially innovative is that dynamic light shall be applied to optimize the lighting design of public spaces, reducing light sources and light intensity in order to lower light pollution and energy consumption. One pilot investment has been implemented in the Town of Čakovec where old and inefficient public lighting in the city centre has been replaced with a new one based on LED technology containing a controlling system.
