Identification of critical success factors for implementing sustainable public lighting management in cities: literature-based applications
Keywords:Street lighting system, Sustainable lighting, Urban street lighting, Resource efficiency, Local energy planning
Goal: The objective of this study was to conduct an exploratory literature search capable of identifying the critical success factors for the implementation of sustainable public lighting management in cities.
Design / Methodology / Approach: To accomplish this, the chosen method was a systematic literature survey conducted according to the Cochrane protocol, using the Web of Science, Scopus, and Science Direct journal databases.
Results: As a result, the study shows that there is a scarcity of scientific literature published in journals regarding the intersection between sustainable management and public lighting. In addition, it became clear that the main practices carried out in this area occur in European cities.
Limitations of the investigation: VOSviewer software was used to build and visualize the bibliometric networks and only two correlated attributes were identified, which shows a lack of similarity between them and demonstrates a limitation of this study.
Practical applications: As a practical implication, the present study supports public managers in decision-making regarding sustainable public lighting, demonstrating the need to implement projects in this field.
Originality/Value: Although this is an extremely important subject, the search showed few studies published in this field.
