Infocast's Smart Lighting Partnering SummitMAR 15, 2012 - 07:05 ET
Over 52 Million Street and Road Lights Will Be Replaced Over the Coming Decades, Creating an Enormous Opportunity for the Smart Lighting Industry
SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - March 15, 2012) - Infocast will hold its 2nd Annual Smart Lighting Partnering Summit from April 2-3, 2012 at the Network Meeting Center at Techmart in Santa Clara, CA. The world of outdoor, street and roadway lighting is on the brink of massive structural change. According to some estimates, over 52 million street and roadway lights are due for replacement over the coming decades across North America. The market for outdoor and street lighting is growing rapidly and is leading a new generation of energy efficiency technology.
New technologies, both in controls and luminaires, are evolving to displace decades-old format of mercury-sodium bulbs. These new control and luminaire platforms offer a number of potential benefits, not only major energy savings, but savings in maintenance costs that tie in to support major urban infrastructure/communication uses.
Infocast's Smart Lighting Partnering Summit is the perfect event for senior decision-makers, municipally owned utilities and investor-owned utilities with the focus on the implications of the new smart lighting paradigm. At this event, vendors of both luminaire and control systems will have an invaluable opportunity for in-depth networking with the financial and technical decision-makers from leading customers across North America. They will also benefit from many incisive economic, policy and engineering performance discussions and case studies.
The Summit will feature a keynote presentation from Edward Smalley, the Director of the Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium. It will also include speakers from New York City Department of Transportation, The City of Glendale, City of Pittsburgh, City of San Jose, Duke Energy, Georgia Power, California Lighting Technology Center, Acuity Brands, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, Cree, Echelon Corporation, MIT and others.
