Toolkit to Mainstream LED Road Lighting
Although the need for and benefit of energy efficient road lighting is clear, it has been difficult for funding agencies and governments alike to make the case for LEDs in roads projects due to lack of technical and project design capabilities to implement.
The Toolkit – LED Road Lighting Design Manual is a knowledge management tool to support accelerated adoption of energy efficient lighting for roads by funding agencies and governments. The toolkit provides:
Evidence around the economic, environmental, and social benefits gained from the switch to LED
Key steps needed to design and implement an LED road lighting project as well as a step-by-step guide including technical parameters for consideration, supplier selection
How to avoid common pitfalls
Financing options, including for lighting retrofit projects, and ways to apply energy savings toward the cost of the switch.
