Model Specifications

Introducing new Street Lighting and Smart Control Model Specifications


IPWEA's Street Lighting and Smart Control (SLSC) Programme has just launched two Model Specifications that will assist public lighting buyers, vendors, contractors, funders and advisors to efficiently and economically engage in procurement of LED lighting and control systems for public lighting.

Model Public Lighting Controls Specification

This Model Public Lighting Controls Specification has been developed in conjunction with key stakeholders and is driven by ANZ user needs, leading technologies, technical standards, international methods and precedents.

An essential briefing for procuring organisations on how to customise and use the Model Public Lighting Controls Specification for ANZ projects.

 

 

The aim of this model specification is to be:

  • Technically robust and current;
  • Accommodating of a modular procurement approach where each technology level – possibly provided by separate vendors - is interoperable with the other, or conversely a turnkey approach where the whole system is provided by a single Vendor.  This is further explained in Section 3.
  • Compatible with AS/NZS standards and specifications and addressing gaps where AS/NZS guidance does not exist or is not suitably current;
  • Written concisely in easy to understand language;
  • Applicable to large and small projects in urban and rural applications;
  • Structured to include a range of selectable options to be chosen by the user to deliver a customised specification meeting their needs;
  • A living document, subject to ongoing review as the technology and market evolves; and
  • Widely and freely available to reduce barriers to uptake of controls and dramatically increase the likelihood of procurement and application.


Model LED Public Lighting Specification

This Model LED Public Lighting Specification is intended to accelerate the adoption of LEDs in public lighting projects by assisting buyers, vendors, contractors, funders and advisors to more confidently, robustly, efficiently and economically engage in procurement of LEDs.

The broader objective in accelerating the adoption of LEDs in public lighting is to help lighting owners reduce the total costs of operating public lighting while providing a variety of other safety, social and environmental benefits that LEDs can deliver.

The aim of this model specification is to be:

  • Technically robust and current;
  • Compatible with AS/NZS standards and specifications while filing in gaps where AS/NZS guidance does not exist or is not suitably current;
  • Written concisely in easy to understand language;
  • Applicable to large and small projects in both urban and rural application;
  • Structured to include a range of selectable options to be chosen by the user to deliver a customised specification meeting their needs; and
  • Freely available to reduce barriers to LED uptake and dramatically increase their likely procurement and application.
