Solar Lighting: A Path to Sustainability and Improved Road Safety
Solar lighting technology has made significant strides, revolutionising smart city development, enhancing road safety in areas without access or limited power and enabling governments to offset its emissions in conjunction with Net-Zero polices.

Driving Uptake of Sustainable Technologies
A larger initiative is needed to combat climate change. Local and Federal governments globally need to legislate offering greater emission offset technology such as solar lighting in planning and tender phases where the technology is feasible to operate correctly. Recent advancements in solar technology means that solar lighting in most cases is more reliable than traditional mains powered lighting if correctly scoped and implemented. For this to happen engineering standards needs to be adopted so that government purchasers can be confident that the specified system will work correctly within the national guidelines.

Educating decision makers
Green Frog Systems consults globally to local, state and federal governments writing best practice standards for technology where solar street lighting is being mandated for upcoming projects. This approach is to ensure education at all levels of the decision making process, a three-pronged approach: engineer education, government regulation and standards, and proactive promotion of sustainable solutions.

Educating Engineers
Engineers are often hesitant with emerging technologies like solar lighting. By providing evidence from our live cloud data system, case studies and an extensive list of major projects globally we can demonstrate the reliability of solar lighting systems and help engineers understand the technology’s full potential.

In conclusion, the advancement of solar lighting technology has the potential to transform smart cities, road safety, and offer strong emissions offset technology. By focusing on educating all levels of decision making we know we can drive the uptake of sustainable technologies through government regulation and support, we can create a brighter, more sustainable future.
