Australia's Leading Energy Efficient
Lighting Event focusing on Street,
Outdoor, Urban & Public Lighting
Every urban city across the globe is transforming to
becoming a smart city, offering a better quality of life
to its residents. The concept of a smart city percolates
to different divisions within an ecosystem – from
infrastructure to mobility; healthcare to education;
city services to lighting.
Lighting is ubiquitous part of everyday life. Conventional
lighting solutions have paved the way for smart lighting
infrastructure or otherwise referred to as intelligent
outdoor lighting systems that have become the backbone
of a smart city. Cities are embracing innovative lighting
solutions; connected energy-efficient lighting systems
controlled by technology that not only enhances the
beauty and aesthetic value of public spaces, but also
promotes citizen safety.
Australia’s major cities have undertaken a series of
measures to promote the use of energy efficient lighting
solutions with Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and
Hobart leading the way. While the city of Adelaide aims
to be the world’s first carbon neutral city, Sydney
commits to net zero emissions by 2050.
In tune with the lighting developments undertaken on
a regional and a national level, the 4th Annual Australian
Smart Lighting Summit, endorsed by the City of
Melbourne will bring together regionally and globally
prominent experts, sector specialists from public entities,
government, semi- government and international estab-
lishments to deliver a series of stimulating presentations,
interactive panel discussions and thought-provoking case
study presentations on topics that will cover the latest
trends in the lighting industry.
Supported by the Lighting Council Australia & IESANZ,
the Australian Smart Lighting Summit has established
itself as the leading event in public & street lighting in
Australia, attracting over 150 delegates every year. The
summit by itself remains an important platform for senior
lighting industry professionals representing more than
40 councils, engineers, lighting designers, architects,
