UK-based non-profit organisation The Climate Group is rolling out an initiative that aims to promote LED street lighting adoption worldwide, called LED Scale-up.

The purpose of the initiative is to urge every city in the world to implement LED retrofits by 2025. To be able to meet this goal, The Climate Group will focus on key areas.

Global LED consultation The goal of this initiative is to encourage key decision makers to participate in LED consultations, which aim to identify the various issues and bottlenecks that hinder LED adoption through interviews and informal discussions. The project also seeks to address these issues and help accelerate the scale-up of energy-efficient outdoor lighting all over the world.

LED knowledge base Through LED Scale-up, the group aims to create a growing database of LED-related information and materials. This database, including studies, research, white papers, and other resources relevant to LED lighting, will allow an easier sharing of knowledge and best practices for a smoother transition to LED lighting.

LED financing Another initiative created under LED Scale-up seeks to explore new financing models for better management of risks when it comes to LED retrofits and other LED infrastructure projects.

LED adoption by utilities This initiative aims to identify opportunities and supporting policies that will help promote the use of energy-efficient LED lighting by utilities, both in the private and public sectors.

Off-grid LED lighting Lack of access to sustainable lighting is a problem experienced in many parts of the world. This initiative aims to promote sustainable off-grid LED lighting to eliminate or at least minimise light poverty globally.

The LED Scale-up project is one of the many global initiatives today that promote wide-scale LED retrofits, especially in terms of city lighting. While we still have a long way to go before we achieve this, projects like the LED Scale-up can help various stakeholders identify what needs to be done to make the transition easier.

On-site visualisation: LED and safety in work sites

On-site visualisation (OSV) is a new technology based on light emitting diodes (LEDs) that makes it easier to monitor potential hazards on construction sites. Using a device equipped with LEDs, OSV measures irregularities at building sites and sends a colour-coded signal to indicate if there is danger of collapse. This technology provides a new level of safety for workers on construction sites, minimising risk not just to property but also to human life. Safety on construction sites The safety of workers in high-risk jobs like construction work has always been a concern on projects. While being able to finish a […]

Incandescent and CFL demand continue decline

In the latest report of the US National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) released in February this year, indexes for linear fluorescent lamp shipments for the third quarter of 2015 plummeted for the seventh consecutive quarter. Fluorescent T12 lamp shipments suffered a 40.4 percent decline compared to the same period in 2014, while shipments for T8 and T5 lamps decreased by 10.9 and 10.6 percent, respectively. This downward trend in terms of fluorescent lamp shipments in the US began in 2014, around the same time when light-emitting diodes (LEDs) started taking off after reaching a price range that is acceptable at […]

LED street lighting

Cities that have transitioned to LED street lighting

No other popular lighting technology today is as efficient as light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which is why many of the world’s cities are decommissioning old lighting in favour of LED street lights. As the world continues its way toward the adoption of greener and more sustainable technologies, the number of cities rolling out LED lighting installations and retrofits for city lighting is steadily increasing.   Here are five examples of cities that have started outfitting their roads and parks with LED street lighting. 1. Adelaide The City of Adelaide is among the first cities in the world to use LED street […]
