Complementary Functions: Urban Design and Smart Solar Street Lighting

This is just the beginning of a series of articles that will tackle various urban design issues. The main objective of these articles is to explain how smart solar street lighting can improve urban planning and design of public infrastructures on one hand and how compatible should solar powered outdoor lights be with urban environments to fit each specific project location on the other hand. Both of these aspects are important in order to achieve a cohesive urban landscape that will increase public safety, quality of services, lighting performance and energy efficiency.
