Wegweisende Modernisierung von Straßenbeleuchtung
Matthias Weis, CEO, Urban Lighting Innovations GmbH
Against the backdrop of energy prices and increasing pressure to act on the part of nature conservation, street lighting is the focus of attention in many places, as a large proportion of the systems are considered outdated. How can modernisation and digitalisation be successfully combined? How can ecology and economy be reconciled? And how can measures be significantly accelerated? The lecture provides answers to these questions and gives insights into one of the most modern projects in this area.
