To meet the challenge of overhauling street lighting as part of local climate plans, local authorities have numerous low-energy options to choose from, including LED lighting and dimming units. To facilitate decisions in this area, at the request of the Association of Netherlands Municipalities (VNG) CE Delft has teamed up with Tauw to develop an online support tool. This tool can help sustainability managers and those involved in outdoor lighting procurement make the most efficient choices on lighting unit replacement in terms of energy consumption, materials and cost savings. To provide inspiration for further steps the online tool describes three practical examples that have already been implemented.
The tool has been online since 18 March, 2020: https://tools.ce.nl/led-tool/
