FIFA World Cup kicks off using smart streetlights
As part of the sustainable agenda for the FIFA World Cup, which kicked off this month (November 2022), LED streetlights from the US were installed in Doha, Qatar.
Produced by Texas-based company EnGoPlanet, the EnGo Leaf solar streetlights can be run completely off the grid and there were 350 streetlights installed in several locations in Doha.
EnGoPlanet designs smart solar streetlights and furniture such as solar-powered benches and bus shelters.
Many global locations are suitable for the application of solar energy, and solar streetlights can represent a practical application in smart city infrastructure, given that they have the ability to be run entirely off-grid and can be easily installed.
Petar Mirovic, EnGoPlanet CEO, said, “Without these alternatives, our future would be bleak and we are happy to contribute to building smart sustainable cities.”
The company said the sustainable infrastructure sends a message to tourists arriving for the World Cup — we don’t have a Planet B.
