Public lighting and Smart City
Ecologicamente – Which public lighting infrastructure should we choose for the development of the smart city?
The promotion of a ‘culture of light’ and the knowledge and best practices involved in this culture, is a fundamental prerequisite to enable a country to have a modern and efficient public lighting network and it was for this reason that the ‘Lumière Training Days’, (promoted by ENEA), were conceived. For many years CRIET has actively contributed in both organizing and conducting these training days.
The training days, apart from wanting to be a moment of dialogue with the actors in the lighting industry sector, enable participants to obtain information and advice on the topic of upgrading public lighting facilities and providing an opportunity to discuss the environmental, economic and social impact of the process of modernization of the national public lighting system.
