Public Lighting SectorRoad Lighting 2015 programme cover

As a result of recent work in the public lighting sector, which is facing major technological changes with the advent of LEDs (light emitting diodes), we have formed a new specialist business, Strategic Lighting Partners Ltd, with lighting expert Bryan King.

We have run two international conferences, Road Lighting 2014 and 2015, to introduce the New Zealand market to the opportunities offered by LED street lighting and won a Public Relations Insitute of NZ award for the first event. We have launched an e-letter, Public Lighting Today, to bring the latest news in public lighting to the sector in New Zealand.

While the public lighting sector has been a recent focus for our consultancy services, we continue to offer advisory services in other sectors.

Publications and reports

We author and prepare a range of reports, publications and submissions in the course of our consultancy work. Much of this work is confidential. This is a selection of our work which is in the public domain.
