LightSavers Canada is a national market consortium that aims to step up the adoption of LED lighting and smart adaptive controls in certain general illumination applications. LightSavers Canada will assist municipal and provincial governments, public institutions, and private companies that own or manage lighting assets to learn from each other about LED and smart control performance, procurement, and financing.

Rigorous trials in many places have shown that LEDs and adaptive controls can reduce electricity use 50-70% in outdoor applications. These lighting solutions offer compelling public benefits that include significantly lower operating costs, central management of lighting assets, improved visibility and public safety, and reduced light pollution and carbon emissions.

Founding sponsor Natural Resources Canada is supporting the development of scale-up tools, communication activities, and a national summit focused on the scale-up of LED and adaptive control technologies in outdoor applications.
