Next Energy is a specialist consultancy that helps clients reap the benefits of transitioning to more effective and efficient public lighting.  We help our clients reduce lighting costs, energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and light pollution while improving the safety, security and the quality of lighting outcomes for the community.

LED lighting and smart controls can together deliver dramatic cost savings through improved energy efficiency and a reduced maintenance burden.  With a lower total cost of ownership than previous lighting solutions, a revolution in public lighting is underway.  Widespread deployment of LEDs and smart controls is taking place in cities and towns around the world.  In many cases, smart public lighting controls networks are also forming a key communications backbone of the future smart community.

Over the past decade, Next Energy has provided strategic public lighting advice to more than 70 local governments as well as road authorities, utilities, government agencies and industry associations.  Its projects have resulted in more than 200,000 lighting upgrades which are saving clients tens of millions of dollars.

Next Energy has excellent relationships across the public lighting industry and is completely independent of all lighting equipment suppliers, controls suppliers and specialist lighting service providers.  This allows us to deliver impartial and strategic advice to the end-users of public lighting.

Let Next Energy help you plan your transition to LEDs, smart controls and the future smart community.
