According to Research and Markets, over 330 million street lighting luminaires will be installed worldwide in the next eight years.
Road managers are increasingly using LED street luminaires and intelligent street lighting control systems, mainly due to their economic and environmental advantages.
Intelligent street lighting systems can adjust the light intensity to the current conditions, users’ needs and standards. Coupled with motion detectors or weather sensors, intelligent street lighting systems determine the level of required light intensity based on algorithms. This ensures that road users always receive the right amount of light, which has a direct impact on safety. Moreover, the system can help to reduce electricity costs by up to 70% thanks to its ability to reduce light levels at late night.
In addition to on-going network management, intelligent street lighting control can provide a range of service and energy-related information. The system operator receives a whole set of data, such as operating time, current power or failure of individual street LED luminaire. This way the administration is able to precisely carry out and optimize maintenance works, which translates into further savings. Additionally, intelligent street lighting systems collect “energy balance” data, which allows to control the effectiveness of the entire network.

One of the first and the largest intelligent street lighting control systems was installed in Oslo, generating savings at the level of 70%. In order to achieve similar results upgrading of a lighting system one should take into account the replacement of the traditional light bulbs, fluorescent lamps with LED street lamps. Combining an efficient street lighting control system with a cost-effective LED technology. In other words the system maintenance costs can be cut by half. Such an investment should pay for itself within 3-4 years, which, given a low failure rate and longer replacement intervals, has a direct impact on the local budget.
