LIFE-DIADEME proved the energy-saving benefits of its adaptive street lighting system in Rome, Piacenza and Rimini. They installed 1 000 devices to collect data on luminance, road traffic, pollutants, noise levels and weather conditions. As it uses less electricity than current lighting systems, the technology reduces CO2 emissions and maintenance costs. It also extends the average life of the appliance and guarantees excellent visibility for pedestrians and vehicles. LIFE-DIADEME won the 2021 EU Sustainable Energy Award in the Innovation category for its work.
