LEDs and Smart Lighting - Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown County Council
Public lighting represents a significant portion of DLRCC’s energy use. As of November 2017, 21% of DLR’s public lighting has been upgraded to LEDs, resulting in a 15% reduction in energy use. Being keen to use technology to further reduce energy demand, DLRCC has been trialling smart lighting with Central Management Systems (CMS). Together with ESB Telecoms and Silver Springs, DLRCC finalised a smart lighting CMS trial in Dundrum in September 2017, and has started a micro-SIM trial in Sandyford Industrial Estate.
As a result of these trials, there are plans to continue upgrading public lighting in DLRCC by replacing sodium lights with LEDs and deploying CMS.
