11:00 – 11:15 a.m. :: Morning Break

11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. :: Connecting with Outdoor Lighting Customers

Utilities offering a robust catalog of outdoor lighting is only part of the solution. The industry has been selling LEDs and is now offering additional services. There is a full offering of engineering services to make sure the system is running efficiently and safely. Customer service need to be involved through the completion and beyond through:

  • Strategic infrastructure placement
  • Ongoing maintenance
  • Protection from predicted weather in the area

Michael Meier, LED Lighting Sales Manager, Florida Power & Light Company

12:15 – 1:15 p.m. :: Break for Lunch

1:15 – 2:15 p.m. :: How Innovation is Driving Colorado Springs Lighting Rollout

Colorado Springs Utilities has implemented controllers on LED lighting across the city to deliver more functionality across the system. Innovation has been the key driver to allow the city monitoring and control of light levels and easier ways to program the systems based on the time of the year.

The controllers work well for maintenance teams to allow smarter truck rolls. The city is also looking to add more functionality to the network in the form of more devices and cameras.

Carlos Tamayo, Director of Innovation, City of Colorado Springs

2:15 – 3:15 pm. :: Light Pollution, Energy Savings, and Other Scientific Insights

Recent studies into the spectral and absolute sensitives of people to different light sources have been published that can be used to evaluate existing and future street lighting installations. Combining that with savings on energy and costs, entities can find the right balance for outdoor lighting projects. Hear the data on these and other insights in this session.

Leora C. Radetsky, LUNA Program Director and Senior Lighting Scientist, Design Lights

3:15 – 3:30 p.m. :: Afternoon Break

3:30 – 4:30 p.m. :: Leveraging Smart Lighting Controls to Transform Outdoor Lighting Operations

Explore the innovative technology shaping the future of outdoor lighting operations – particularly the increased adoption of smart street lighting controls paired with field operations software. This session covers the integration of wireless controls with enterprise mobile applications to transform lighting operations and maintenance. Leading utilities such as Georgia Power, Exelon and Duke Energy are at the forefront of leveraging smart street lights to work smarter, improve service, reduce truck rolls, and lower expenses. Discover how this approach is helping utilities leverage IoT to transform operations in ways never before possible.
