What value orientations matter for this function?

For persons:
Objectives: Sufficient and reliable lighting on the streets during evening, night and morning.

For organizations:

Private sector roles
Objectives: profitable participation in technology life-cycles
Options: (1 - business-as-usual) use lobby power, lock-in and knowledge access hurldes to push technology life-cycles beyond their ecological optimum.
(2 - recommended) Enable rapid buy-in of proven new technologies in multi-stakeholder strategies.


Public sector roles
Objectives: optimal service levels for minimal total cost of ownership and minimal ecological footprint.
Options: (1 - business-as-usual) non-critical following of the vendors and solution providers.
(2 - recommended) Incentivise solution providers for rapid adoption of ecologically/economically optimal solutions.

For the function in a territory:

What are feasible objectives & options for delivering this function of government? Taking into consideration dependencies on the country's resource endowments, what options exist to achieve which objectives for this function of government?

Objectives: Low energy use, long life-time of the lighting solution, low cost of ownership
Options: LED (see the report Making Global Street Lighting Led Based), FIPEL (see the Dec. 6, 2012 article of Eletronics Weekly)

Objectives: Low total cost of ownership, high reliability, low carbon footprint.


Gaps and diagnostics: What goes wrong and why?

Gaps can be articulated with respect to a result framework or the Sustainable development goals (#SDGs). One must take into consideration the level of scope, and its level of development (in a peer group).

In the diagnostics we must also clarify cause-effect relationships in a diagnostic hypothesis.javascript:;


0. No street lighting
1. Street lighting based on fluorescent lamps
2. LED-based street lighting
3. Street lighting based on Field-Induced Polymer Electroluminescent (FIPEL)


What guidelines can be formulated for delivering this function of government?

The guidelines for actors at the various level of scope had better be informed by a Theory of Change that is aligned with a strong diagnostic hypothesis for the function of government.


Private sector: producers of ligthing solutions and related services.
Public sector: local or regional government agencies responsible for street lighting.


Notes:

  1. Public private partnerships which may involve cooperatives1 may offer suitable models for delivering certain functions of government! What are (open access) best practices? What are workable public-private boundaries in delivering this function?
  2. The level of scope in guidelines is reflected in the socio-technical level of roles. Each role must be defined in one of Pico roles, Micro roles, Meso roles or Macro roles. When a role is referenced here, its definition page should also contain a link to this page.
