    How to develop the smart city using dynamic LED lighting

    Many cities, and private and public organizations, are using dynamic LED lighting in new and unique ways. These lighting installations serve much more than a utilitarian purpose of providing light. In many cases, they can affect the future of cities by sparking increased
    tourism, economic development, community pride, and neighborhood revitalization.

    To better understand the potential comprehensive impact of these lighting projects, Philips Lighting engaged an independent research firm to conduct an impact evaluation and analysis of a sampling of diverse lighting installations.

    In the report, see how innovative urban lighting installations can:

    • Spark public-private partnerships
    • Drive economic development
    • Enhance community engagement
    • Promote a city, brand, or district area

    This is a project that our citizens can be proud of, I trust it will be another draw for tourism and economic development to our great city."
