The city of Copenhagen has the ambition to becoming the first carbon-neutral capital city in the world. To reach this ambitious goal, the city council has adopted a comprehensive and targeted carbon reduction plan. The intelligent street lighting project is an element of the carbon reduction plan which aims to make Copenhagen’s street lights more energy efficient, coupled with reducing their energy consumption by 50%. The project can be viewed as being a complex infrastructure investment. This is due to the fact that the city had a plan in place to renew sections of the lighting system across city to help attain the goals for optimising the energy consumption and infrastructure renovation. Moreover, the world of LEDs is continually moving. With such a fast-developing technology, the challenge is to ensure that products brought to the market are not rapidly made obsolete by newer versions.
