ILP are excited to announce the date of our next Local Authority Lighting event: Lighting Live24 to be held at the Mercure Hotel, Daventry, Northampton.
Nearly one in five councils say it is “fairly or very likely” they’ll go bust in the next 15 months – and lighting isn’t a protected, statutory service.
Local authority lighting teams are leading the rollout of electric vehicle charging infrastructure; our transition to increasingly ‘smart’ connected cities; tackling mitigating light pollution, especially urban obtrusive light; responding to demands for ‘dimming and trimming’ as energy prices continue to bite; and at the forefront of local government’s own rapid drive towards net zero and reducing CO2 emissions.
At the same time, with an ageing profession, lighting teams are struggling to attract, recruit and retain the next generation of lighters, with local authority lighting especially affected.
How can all these competing demands and pressures be met and managed? The ILP’s special Lighting Live event in Daventry, Northamptonshire on 1 February is bringing local authority lighting teams together to hammer out some answers.
With presentations addressing EV charging rollouts, the decarbonisation of highways, asset management and safe attachment deployment, reducing emissions, reimagining pathways into the profession, and much, much more – Lighting Live will have something for everyone.
So come and join us at the Mercure Daventry Court Hotel on 1 February from 10am. Will we be able to put the local authority lighting world to rights? With your input and expertise, maybe we can!
