In order to keep you up to date with the latest changes of the project, please check the information under Project plan and Documents.

Publication of draft EU GPP criteria for Road Lighting and Traffic Signals for final written consultation (March 2018)

The EU GPP criteria have been revised following stakeholder feedback during and after the September 2017 webinars. These criteria are now subject to a final written consultation period of approximately 6 weeks. Stakeholders are invited to submit their comments directly onto an html version of the technical report, which has been uploaded on the BATIS platform for registered stakeholders. The deadline for comments, which should be as concise as possible, is 13 May 2018. A pdf version of the same report is also available on this website for reference.

Publication of 2nd draft version of the Technical Report and EU GPP criteria proposals for Road Lighting and Traffic Signals (August 2017)

Significant changes have been made to the EU GPP criteria proposals since the 1st draft of the Technical Report that was published in October 2016. Criteria are now grouped by subject area (i.e. energy efficiency, light pollution or product lifetime) instead of project stage (e.g. design, installation, maintenance). This document will form the basis for stakeholder discussion during the September 2017 webinars.
