This Toolkit and the two accompanying business cases have been developed to assist Local Authorities to assess the impact of investing in energy efficiency measures within their street lighting asset. It covers measures such as LED lighting, control systems and the use of dimming and trimming. It is designed as an initial feasibility assessment i.e. a pre-business case tool.
The Toolkit has been developed with technical expertise provided by Ove Arup & Partners and in consultation with the SCOTS street lighting team. It has focussed on upgrading to LED street lights however there are alternative technologies which can also be considered as part of a business case study
