Public lighting and Smart City

The development of analytical tools and procedural methods for innovation in public lighting

CRIET and ENEA have signed a collaboration agreement for the development and implementation of the methods and the technical and economic instruments needed to promote and facilitate the upgrading of public lighting facilities.

As a result of the positive results obtained thanks to the agreement signed in 2011, the province of Monza e Brianza and its municipal authorities were selected as suitable locations within which to base and test the procedures and instruments developed during 2012.

The ultimate goal of the agreement is to provide Italian municipal authorities with instruments which are specifically designed to promote the understanding of the potential for energy savings in public lighting facilities and to encourage the planning of the interventions needed to upgrade them.
