Second LED-Walkway webinar on energy efficient lighting research

The topic of the second LED-Walkay webinar on energy efficient lighting research was 'Foucs, trends and topics from South Africa and Germany'. 

The South African - German Energy Partnership and the South African - German Energy Programme, both implemented by GIZ, supported their partner ‘The Innovation Hub (TIH)’ in hosting a series of webinars on energy efficient lighting out of a demonstration project on energy efficient streetlight retrofit project implemented at TIH in Pretoria. The aim of the demonstration project is to demonstrate the latest lighting technologies, showcase/display products for research development and raise awareness amongst municipalities on energy efficient streetlighting technologies. The demonstration project is funded by the Swiss Government as part of the bilateral agreement with Republic of South Africa through its entity Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) under an Energy Efficient Street Lighting Retrofit Project (EEStLRP) implemented by GIZ with the DMRE.

This was the second in a series of three webinars and it focused on the trends and topics of research on energy efficient lighting in South Africa and Germany.

The webinar comprised of speakers from the South African-German Energy Partnership project as the sponsor of the webinar and also launching a research review project looking at current research on energy efficient lighting in South African public and private institutions; SANEDI presenting the research priorities from the Government perspective; a former researcher from the University of Pretoria, South Africa as well as researchers from the Technical University of Berlin, Germany sharing research priorities, trends and focus of research on energy efficient lighting.
