First volume of LUCIA Compendium on sustainable and smart urban lighting released

LUCIA Compendium vol. 1

The publication focuses on sustainable and smart urban lighting. It introduces the findings, recommendations, and tools that have been identified and created during the first phase of the LUCIA project.

The first volume of the LUCIA Compendium provides a comprehensive set of information, practice-oriented examples, lessons learnt on a wide range of topics from urban lighting technologies to essential lighting economics and green procurement of smart lighting, going through environmental and societal impacts.

It can serve as a quick introduction and guidebook with numerous further references, enabling a better understanding of urban lighting and its new developments. It will also help policy makers be inspired by what is possible, desirable and needed and will assist in the decision-making process in cities.

The knowledge gained during the first phase of the LUCIA project will be put into practice by means of six pilot sites in the cities of Albertslund (Denmark), Hamburg (Germany), Jūrmala (Latvia), Porvoo (Finland), Saint Petersburg (Russia), and Tallinn (Estonia). The results and learnings from these pilot projects will be presented in the second volume of the LUCIA Compendium, which is expected to be released in autumn 2021.

The first volume of the LUCIA Compendium was edited and coordinated by the Tallinn University of Technology. It is available for download here.
