LightSavers LED Safari

LightSavers is an international program that aims to accelerate understanding, acceptance, and use of LEDs and smart control technologies in outdoor lighting applications such as streets, parks, and parking lots. In its first phase, the initiative is undertaking a global trial of LED technologies with 10 large cities in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., China, and India. These trials involve rigorous pilot testing of LED products to determine how they perform over a year under local weather conditions using a common testing protocol.
Trials have already been installed in seven cities: Adelaide and Sydney (Australia), Guiyang and Tianjin (China), Hong Kong, New York (US), Kolkata (India) and Toronto (Canada). Additional trials will get underway soon in the fall of 2010, in Mumbai (India), London (UK), and Shanghai (China).
In order to enhance our municipal partners’ knowledge of LED technical, procurement, and deployment issues, The Climate Group is organizing the LED Safari, a study tour to be held in collaboration with the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America’s (IESNA) annual Street and Area Lighting Conference, scheduled in Huntington Beach, California, September 26 – 29, 2010 (www.iesna.org/salc).
The LED Safari will enable international participants from the global cities to intensively acquire the more recent updated information about LED technologies and their performance, learn about a large variety of American and international LED luminaire and smart control products commercially available, and see LED streetlight luminaire deployment and scale-up in action.
