TALQ Consortium Publishes Pocket Guide for Smart Outdoor Lighting Tenders

TALQ Consortium

The TALQ Consortium, an organization developing a global standard for software interfaces to manage outdoor lighting networks, assists municipalities in ensuring the integrity of their tendering procedures. By publishing a ‘Pocket Guide for Smart Outdoor Lighting Tenders,’ TALQ offers decision makers an excellent basis for compiling forward-looking, cost and energy saving tenders. The first edition of the Pocket Guide is available on the TALQ Consortium website.

Renewing streetlight control and entire outdoor lighting networks is a complex and highly technical matter for cities, municipalities, utilities, operators and project developers. Many cities have limited experience of tendering for street lighting controls, which are often selected as part of a long-term contract.
