LED lighting technology has the potential to reduce lighting energy usage and operational costs by over half, improve visual acuity on streets, and reduce the need for Ontario utilties to add new fossil capacity in the future. Barriers exist, however, including understanding the technical aspects of this new and evolving technology, how to test and report its performance attributes, procure quality luminaire products, build a compelling business case at council, and finance the initial capital cost.
In this one day workshop, lighting asset managers will learn from experts and from each other about the current state of the technology, and trials and scale-ups occurring in Canada, the U.S. and internationally.

Topics to be presented and discussed include:

- Case studies of successful LED streetlighting, parking area, and garage scale-ups

- Procurement tools available for LED scale-up and roll out projects

- Alternative financing tools and sources available for LED scale-up and roll out projects

- Government and utility support for LED scale-up projects

- Latest developments in LED technology performance standards (LM79,LM80, TM21)and streetlighting practices (RP8)
