The world’s brighgest cities

In a new international benchmark study, conducted by Copenagen Capacity that analyses the best perfoming cities within a range of lighting criterias, Greater Copenhagen takes a prominent 3rd position.

The overall aim of the analyses was to locate cities around the world that make sense for our partner group to conduct field & study trips to, as part of the project’s work. The initial search resulted in 351 cities across 81 countries, whereafter CopCap applied additional criterias, such as memberships in relevant organisations, certain categories for ongoing or planned projects, availability of research insitutions.

This resulted in a reduction to our final 27 cities, spread across 15 countries and 4 continents. Please read the report for further details about the methodology used in this analyses.

Review of LED’s lifecycle sustainability 

14 students at IIIEE,  Lund University, have over the past term reviewed the sustainability aspects of LED’s lifecycle, from the extraction of resources to manufacturing, distribution, use and end-of-life process – and present it here.

The review is the first step in making the processes and environmental impact behind production, distribution and usage of LED more open and transparent, with the ambition to create clear guidelines & recommendations for commisioners of LED at a municipal level during 2017.
