The installation of intelligent lighting could save, for some cities, up to 80% of their energy consumption according to the national association of illumination manufacturers (Anfalum).
Replacing the old mercury vapour lamps is key to start saving but many cities still use them, for example Madrid, for 20% of their illumination.
Very big amounts of energy would be saved by optimising the street lighting with low consumption, more efficient and better performance lighting.
Also, the intelligent management of street lighting hours means continued savings over time when compared to the current systems and lighting schedules.
Thanks to the intelligent city boom, street lighting is increasingly adopting new technology models every day to bring efficiency and savings to councils.
