German Lighting Projects Provide Interesting Template for Ireland’s Energy Efficiency Needs


Over three days from 11th to 13th June, nine Irish organisations took part in a Study Tour to Germany in the area of Energy Efficient Lighting, organised by DEinternational Ireland. During this intensive 3-day programme, the group, consisting of city and county councils, lighting designers and lighting companies from Ireland, travelled from Frankfurt in Hessen southwards through Baden-Wuerttenburg visiting 15 best practice energy efficient lighting projects of eight German companies. The projects ranged from conventional and historic street lighting retrofits to commercial, industrial and architectural lighting examples. The group also visited manufacturing plants of some of the German companies to view examples of their lighting systems and controls, as well as remote control demonstrations.
