Accelerate your LED outdoor lighting conversion

As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Describe financial, technical and regulatory barriers that constrain broad deployment of LED outdoor lighting conversions in the public sector.
  • Discuss the benefits of LED outdoor lighting conversions in the public sector.
  • Access tools and resources to help navigate the transition to high efficiency outdoor street lighting.
  • Discuss municipality focused LED outdoor lighting conversion best practices and strategies based on real-world examples.

Who should attend?
City planners; municipal engineers; public works directors and superintendents; lighting designers, manufacturers and suppliers; architects; electric utility engineers; and anyone with interest or involvement in the design, operation or maintenance of street and outdoor lighting.

High performance LED outdoor lighting technologies are a cost effective energy savings opportunity often offering 50 percent or more savings relative to previously installed systems. Plus, they last longer and offer maintenance and operational benefits. Our expert presenter will highlight three key challenges of outdoor street and area LED lighting conversions in the public sector—financial, technical and regulatory—and describe proven solutions to overcome these obstacles. She’ll share information, best practices and key findings from the Better Buildings Outdoor Lighting Accelerator, a DOE initiative that focuses on this vital public service and works with dozens of municipalities to accelerate the adoption of LED outdoor lighting.
