London LED Street Lights

Joining major cities all across Europe, the United States and Asia, London has announced plans to upgrade 35,000 city streetlights with LED luminaires. It’s the first phase of a plan that will ultimately see 52,000 streetlights converted to LEDs over the next ten years, consistent with the city’s goal of a 60% reduction in carbon emissions by 2025.

The plan was announced by the Transport for London (TfL) transit authority in conjunction with the mayor’s office, and represents the largest such investment in the city’s history. The first phase alone is expected to reduce emissions by 9,700 metric tons each year, while generating GBP1.85 million in savings for the TfL.

Further savings are expected with the addition of a networked adaptive control system to this London LED street lighting installation, which will be programmed to control light levels according to traffic flow and overall road usage. The system will also automatically detect maintenance needs, saving money in both the short and long term.
