America’s DOE’s MSSLC (Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium) releases adaptive controls spec for LED street lights, which would be very useful for the UK to adopt this spec?
The MSSLC has released its Model Specification for Adaptive Control and Remote Monitoring of LED Roadway Luminaires aimed at helping municipalities and utilities maximize energy savings.
The template for procuring LED street lights with integral network and adaptive-control technology. The template is another step in the MSSLC’s goal of helping cities, local agencies, and utilities accelerate the deployment of solid-state lighting (SSL) technology for roads and parking. This demonstrates yet again that America is leading the way with adoption of LED technologies while the UK is not creating standard specification to deliver a high volume reliable product at low cost.
The template can be downloaded here “ Model Specification for Adaptive Control and Remote Monitoring of LED Roadway Luminaires”
This new template follows the original baseline model specification document for roadway luminaires, a financial analysis tool, and demonstration reports released by the MSSLC.
In Iowa State a number of cities banded together, and relied on the MSSLC specification to make a large buy of LED street lights.
