A pilot scheme devised and developed by the Council's street lighting team showed how converting street lanterns in a test area actually reduced the amount of energy used even during high demand periods.

The pilot of this project showed that during a ‘test period’ in February and November between 4pm and 8pm, 


The Council then entered this pilot scheme as an Electricity Demand Reduction project into the bidding process in October 2015 and the winning bids were announced on 21 January 2016 by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).


The government is funding 37 projects including Milton Keynes Council’s in order to show how new initiatives and products can save energy across the country. Other winning projects include BAE Systems, British Gas and Sony.


The pilot scheme will now be rolled out in street lanterns along a section of grid road on the western edge of the city.
