A lot of information and many experiences of energy-efficient urban lighting projects exist. New lighting projects are being implemented throughout the world. Lighting technology is also developing constantly and rapidly. Replacing old lighting technology with modern LED technology is increasingly common.

To facilitate the journey towards environmentally, economically and socially sustainable urban lighting, information and experiences should be easily accessible and understandable. An increased number of urban developers, designers and decision-makers should have access to the accumulated information. This is why the LUCIA project has compiled factsheets on select topics of urban lighting.

The LUCIA factsheets are divided into three categories: technology, economy and social acceptance. The perspectives selected involve the impact of urban lighting on the well-being of people and the environment, as well as the technological multifunctionality enabled by urban lighting infrastructure. The factsheets are available in English as an online publication and in Finnish on the websites of Posintra (https://www.posintra.fi/lucia-hanke/) and the LUCIA project (https://www.lucia-project.eu/resources-for-you/).

However, reading through informative factsheets is not sufficient for making use of the information. At their best, information and experiences are exchanged in dialogue between various parties. That is why Posintra is inviting Finnish urban planners, developers, decision-makers and manufacturers within the urban lighting sector to join a shared expert meeting – the LUCIA seminar.

The LUCIA seminar will be held in Porvoo on Monday 28 September 2020 from 12 noon to 4 pm. The event will focus on the LUCIA project’s lighting investments in Porvoo and in other pilot sites, as well as discussions based on the data identified in the project.

Save the date for the LUCIA seminar! The programme and the instructions for signing up will be published in August. When making the seminar arrangements, we will pay attention to potential exceptional circumstances and safety instructions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
