Public lighting

Energy efficiency in the context of public lighting is a central theme for Italian municipal authorities. Significant savings are possible both in economic and energy terms provided the latest technologies on the market are adopted. The necessary investments are  limited by the well-known problems to be found in public administration (PA) in terms of economic resources, administrative constraints (the stability pact) and above all in the poor, managerial culture.

This research area has its origins in the longstanding relationship with ENEA and other public institutions. These collaborations have generated numerous research reports, the organization of and participation in scientific and educational conferences and workshops, scientific publications and public awareness-raising activities as well as the development of software to support the activities of the municipal authorities, of ESCo and the sector’s professionals.
