Public lighting is one of the components of total energy consumption in regions and cities, especially in urban areas.
Public lighting often amounts to high share of public energy consumption in municipalities, which consequntly represents a potential for efficient energy use.
In the CitiEnGov project, the public lighting sector is the least represented when it comes to the collection of best practices, which seems to indicate that the sector could be better exploited or appointed for testing new innovative solutions, both as commercal technical solutions or research oriented. The market for intelligent lighting of streets is increasing rapidly and this gives a variety of possible solutions.
In the long term, energy data from public lighting, mobility and buildings could be integrated in one city data network, which would enable efficient energy management.
