The objective is to get new end users, i.e. municipalities, street lighting operators, involved in energy efficient and intelligent street lighting. In this context “involving” means that they go beyond general interest and develop concrete plans and questions about possible implementation of intelligent solutions. Comprehensive advice on specific topics can be provided by the ESOLi consortium.
ESOLi developed a benchmarking tool that enables the local administrations to evaluate the energy efficiency of their lighting projects compared to the different variants of technical design, calculating the payback time of each variant. This software (called OLiMP= Outdoor Lighting Modernization Program) will be soon available on the ESOLi website in several languages.
OLiMP was developed with the aim of being used directly by end users to compare the technical parameters of lighting installations made or designed for the modernization of street lighting. The tool will allow the enrichment of its database by inserting data from further projects, and it will permit the user to build their own design facilities allowing you to choose a variant of modernization and the estimated calculation of investment costs and the conditions financing this investment.
