New South Wales’ City of Ryde is currently undertaking LED retrofit projects with smart control LED technology. With street lighting central to an urban centre’s infrastructure, the technology is set to replace older lighting technologies, reducing energy consumption and improving lighting management.
In 2014-2015, The City of Ryde commenced deploying LED Retrofit projects with smart controls. Moving away from outdated technologies towards smart-controlled LED lighting yields a whole host of benefits from helping cities to save on lighting expenditure, improving lighting efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions. The City of Ryde council’s aim is to convert existing lamps to LED with smart controls as well as require all new lighting to be installed with similar technology.
Manager of Asset Systems at the City of Ryde – NSW, Anthony Ogle, is appearing at the 5th Annual Australian Smart Lighting Summit 2017 to discuss the success story of the first 2 rounds of retrofitting. Ogle will profile what the current and potential market has to offer and benefits gained from smart control equipped LED lighting.
Councils across regional Northern Tasmania are undertaking lighting replacement works in partnership with Ironbark Sustainability with six councils working together to replace over 9,000 street lights.

Western Australia is embarking upon energy efficient LED public lighting projects with State and Federal Government funding assistance. Local government assets such as council buildings and recreation areas have already been retrofitted with LED lighting. Laura Simes, WA Local Government Association (WALGA) Environment Policy Adviser, discusses LED technology in store for the state at the Lighting Summit.
Well-designed outdoor lighting can play an important role in reducing energy wastage and greatly enhancing the nocturnal landscape. Dr Fred Watson, Head of Lighting and Environment at the Australian Astronomical Observatory, will explicate on energy efficient lighting and light pollution in the dark sky realm at the Summit.
Profiling major street, outdoor, urban and public lighting, the 5th Australian Smart Lighting Summit takes place on the 13th and 14th of September 2017 in Melbourne at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
