Abstract The LITES project plans to produce three video presentations on technical, financial, and organizational issues that involve LITES technology implementation. Each video gathers the experiences of the four pilot sites: the campus of Riga Technical University in Latvia, the municipality of Bordeaux in France, the municipality of Piaseczno in Poland, the University of Aveiro in Portugal. The produced first video is related to organizational issues concerned with LITES technology implementation. The technical and financial issues will be covered in the video presentations that will follow. They are planned to present the new knowledge gathered from our work experience with LITES project development. In the final stage of the LITES project, we plan to produce an updated version of a video on organizational issues, covering the new knowledge and experiences of all four LITES pilot sites. The present video introduces the innovative solution of LITES technology that is designed to drastically reduce energy consumption. The core elements of the LITES solution are the dimming of light intensity in response to changing environmental conditions, set of embedded sensors measuring the light, the temperature, the intensity of the electrical current, and motion detection. The video presentation demonstrates how LITES led-based lighting technology realizes energy savings. The added animations show several benefits of LITES technology: how it is designed to achieve energy efficiency, how light intensity adjustments work, and compares existing municipal lighting systems to LITES technology. The video presentation addresses the project’s core issues: • Messages from Bordeaux and Riga municipalities concerning their activities and plans to test the efficiency of the LITES project solution; • Interviews with members of the Pilot sites and their experiences with the benefits of the LITES solution to modernize municipal public lighting; • Energy consumption comparisons of existing public lighting technologies with the features of LITES; • Animations of the LITES project solution. The aim of the first video is to encourage municipalities to set the modernization of street lightning among their chief priorities and to demonstrate to them that it is to their benefit to implement efficient lighting systems that are sustainable and ecologically sound that at the same time offer cost reductions. Moreover, by emphasizing the technology where more qualified workforce will be required for implementation and maintenance of such city lightning. The video intention is also to demonstrate the LITES project technology of LED-based motion sensitive street lighting that reduces energy wastage.
