LIGHTING THE BALTIC SEA REGION
Cities accelerate the deployment of sustainable and smart urban lighting solutions.
LUCIA helps municipalities in the Baltic Sea region to unlock the enormous potential of energy efficient urban lighting solutions. We provide decision makers and experts with state-of-the-art lighting knowledge, covering aspects of environment, technology, economy, social acceptance, urban planning and green public procurement.
New lighting solutions for cities
Urban lighting plays an important role in the city design in the Baltic Sea region. In fact, 60% of the overall energy consumed in urban areas is attributed to street lighting and other urban lighting, e.g. for infrastructure. Modern LED lighting has energy savings potential of 50% compared to conventional systems. Other functionalities, such as an automatic adjustment of luminosity, additionally raise that potential. The project LUCIA introduces such lighting solutions into urban planning, and by this helps municipalities reduce energy consumption.
Lighting online knowledge centre
We are setting up an online urban lighting knowledge centre to connect city lighting managers in the Baltic Sea Region to exchange experiences on planning procedures and selection of urban lighting solutions. Stay tuned for further announcements!
Innovate through piloting
LUCIA partners install modern LED lighting in six Baltic Sea region cities to provide a tangible experience of its potential. The six LUCIA pilot sites are located in:
- Albertslund (Denmark),
- Hamburg (Germany),
- Jūrmala (Latvia),
- Porvoo (Finland),
- St. Petersburg (Russia),
- Tallinn (Estonia).
The replication potential is then evaluated by metropolitan regions of Copenhagen, Hamburg, Riga, Helsinki-Uusimaa, St. Petersburg and Tallinn.
