„LIGHT and ELECTROTECHNICS for Local Governments”


As part of the 29th International Trade Show Light and the 19th International Trade Show Electricity, meetings of representatives of local government units were organized.

Purpose of the meeting:

1. Providing a compendium of knowledge about modern solutions along with specific tips on the possibilities and scope of their application and the analysis of specific examples of their implementation.
2. Provision of the necessary information to carry out a rational and justified modernization of the existing street and road lighting, aimed at better quality and savings on investment and operation costs, and to undertake activities in the scope of new investments.
3. Showing the possibility of achieving significant savings in electricity and the possibility of rationalizing its consumption.
4. Presentation of solutions that result in a measurable improvement in air quality.

Thematic scope:

• outdoor lighting and lighting in public spaces
• internal lighting of facilities managed by local government units
• improving energy efficiency and air quality through the use of renewable energy sources
• use of IoT (Internet of things) in urban agglomerations and urbanized rural areas, including solutions not only in the field of energy-saving LED lighting management, but also parking space management, waste collection, electricity and water consumption metering, data collection on air pollution, traffic intensity, etc.,
• the use of electric vehicles along with the construction and operation of stations and charging points

The initiative to organize such a zone came from the environment of local government units that want to obtain the necessary knowledge and information needed to carry out planned investments, and there is a lot to be done in this regard. Over 70% of Polish cities and towns plan investments in the modernization of street lighting. The acceleration of steps in this direction is due not only to the high costs, but also to the expected significant increase in energy prices.


The meeting consisted of the plenary part, the training part in working groups and the award ceremony in the competition for the Best Illuminated Commune and City of 2021 and the Best Lighting Investment of 2021. During the plenary meeting, the topics will be led by representatives of the Union of Rural Communes and the Union of Polish Cities. The training meeting and the plenary meeting were substantive in nature.
