The Climate Group announces Notice of Intent to Submit Proposal for a new LED trial in London

Oct. 1, 2010
Date Announced: 01 Oct 2010 UPDATE: The deadline for submission of the Letter of Intent is midnight November 1, 2010 (GMT). The Climate Group’s global LightSavers program is seeking interest from LED luminaire manufacturers in submitting proposals for a trial of LED luminaires along roads in London. LightSavers is the first independent global trial that seeks to evaluate how LED luminaires and smart controls perform over time in real world applications in large cities. Led by The Climate Group, LightSavers is looking to undertake LED streetlight trials in London on the major arterial roads. These roads facilitate the flow of mixed commercial and private traffic into and through the city and typically require mounting heights for lighting of 10m or 12m. This is the third trial following two similar trials which are currently being mobilised and for which suppliers have already been selected. Due to the success of the first invitation of expressions of interest of products it has been decided to invite further expressions of interest in order to derive best value and enhance the effectiveness of the trials. While the specific location for this third trial has yet to be finalised, for the purposes of this Notice of Intent, one of the first two trial sites will serve as the reference for manufacturers’ consideration. Details on the trial can be downloaded as a PDF file here.In order to respond to this Notice of Intent to Submit a Proposal, the respondent can click here to go to an online questionnaire — no formal paperwork is required to respond to the Notice.The deadline for submission of the Letter of Intent is midnight November 1, 2010 (GMT).
