There will be four pilot sites where energy efficient street lighting using LITES technologywill be implemented. They are planned for the Municipality of Bordeaux in France, Riga Technical University campus in Latvia and the Universidade de Aveiro in Portugal. All efficiency factors will be optimized at the sites to generate a significant energy saving during the course ofthe project.
