The benefits of public lighting with LED technology

In recent years, Spanish cities and municipalities have been making a strong commitment to a change in energy model, consisting of replacing existing municipal lighting with lighting with LED technology .
A good example of this is Valencia City Council, which over the last two years has been replacing its public lighting in order to benefit from the advantages of this technology. In this sense, the city has developed an action plan focused on both the replacement of public lighting and the change of lighting in administrative buildings and schools by LED lighting .
Specifically, the consistory has replaced a total of 8,849 luminaires, thereby reducing the city’s energy consumption by 17% in the last two years. In economic figures, this figure has materialised in savings of 3.3 million euros, of which 2.3 million come from changing street lighting.


> The advantages of LED technology in public lighting.
Although the economic saving in energy consumption is one of the main reasons why municipalities are opting for LED lighting, there are many advantages that this technology offers.
At the environmental level these projects involve a direct and indirect reduction of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere, which contributes to compliance with European regulations and objectives in this area. In addition, the LED lighting allows municipalities to reach a high degree of energy efficiency , as in most cases, is replacing an obsolete traditional lighting that fails to meet the standards established in the regulations on light pollution.
On the other hand, through public lighting with LED technology , municipalities obtain a greater degree of road safety, as well as greater comfort in the use of public roads by citizens. Specifically, LED technology is fundamentally based on a high Chromatic Reproduction Index (CRI) that allows a better perception of the real colours of objects and a greater visibility of road elements.


From Goodwork, in recent years we have been developing lighting projects public with several municipalities in which we have obtained excellent results. Our commitment to street lighting has led us to develop a large number of products suitable for all types of cities.
Thanks to our continuous research work together with engineers, architects and designers, we have developed patents and unique designs in LED technology of the latest generation. Therefore, we can ensure that our luminaires achieve more efficiency than the average efficiency of any other lamp on the market.

In short, our LED technology presents excellent arguments with a view to their use in the lighting of public spaces, contributing decisively in the creation of safer, more comfortable and sustainable cities.

Tribute in the form of lighting: Wanda Metropolitan Stadium

Last September 6th, Atlético de Madrid opened for the first time the doors of its new home, the Wanda Metropolitano stadium. This event has placed the Madrid club at the forefront in terms of sports facilities, not only for its design and capacity, but also for being the first stadium in the world illuminated entirely with LED lighting .
The club has carried out an ambitious lighting project both inside all its rooms and on the front façade, suspended roof, car parks and accesses, with the aim of using illumination as the new hallmark of the stadium.
A system of 336 projectors has been developed for the turf, located at a height of more than 40 metres, oriented and calibrated in such a way that they do not affect the players’ field of vision and offer the spectators a clear vision of what is happening on the pitch. This system integrates with audiovisual systems and generates advanced lighting effects that provide flicker-free performance, allowing slow motion repetitions of what is happening on the pitch.

Highlights of the lighting project

But undoubtedly, the highlight of this lighting project is in the facade and suspended roof of the stadium. On the façade, 360 state-of-the-art spotlights have been installed, with their own intensity regulator and 1,400 watts of power, through which it is possible to change the appearance of the façade. This system will be integrated with the one installed on the roof, based on a dynamic lighting system capable of projecting more than 16 million colours. These two systems make it possible to create luminous shows capable of reproducing the colours of the local team or to set the mood of the stadium when it hosts events other than football matches.
In addition, an LED curtain 24 metres wide and 6 metres high has been installed on the exterior façade of the stadium, in which all kinds of images and messages for fans can be projected and which accompanies the system installed outside in the creation of a lighting show within the reach of few stadiums in the world.
But the implications of this project are not merely visual. The use of LED technology has reduced the energy consumption of the stadium by 60% compared to the consumption that would have occurred if another type of lighting had been installed.
In this way, Wanda Metropolitano has become one of the most energy-efficient sports stadiums in the world, and is therefore also a benchmark in this respect.

In short, this lighting project is a commitment to LED technology with a quality that turns the matches of the Madrid team into a real show for fans.
