Adjusting the light intensity – dimming – can also save energy in street lighting. Sibelga tested this in the Volta neighbourhood of Ixelles, involving local residents and the authorities in the process.

Various dimming levels and shades were combined. By carrying out projects like these, not only can we examine the profitability of dimming, but we can also calculate more accurately the lighting capacity needed on sites that have to be fitted with white light.

On the basis of the tests carried out on the street lighting in our network or elsewhere, Sibelga is to draw up a ‘technological roadmap’. This will enable our company to determine the strategy and technological choices for lighting in the coming years.
