Public lighting in Australia provides an important service:

Annually costs $210 million

Uses 1,035 GWh of electricity (0.57% of the Australian total)

Is responsible for 1.15 million tonnes of CO2 emissions (0.63% of Australia’s total greenhouse gas emissions from electricity)

The 1.94 million public lights in Australia annually use about the same amount of energy as 170,000 Australian homes

There are ample opportunities to improve the quality of the public lighting service while reducing both the costs and greenhouse emissions. However, most of these opportunities will only be achieved as a result of proactive government action.
