Awards 2022 - Outdoor

>> View all winners of the DALI Lighting Awards 2022

The Winner of the Outdoor category is Signify for the lighting renewal project in Algeciras, Spain.

A total of 5,600 light points were updated, using Zhaga-D4i luminaires from Philips. Key goals were to introduce centralized management, to save energy, and to reinforce security in sensitive areas at night.

Luminaires are connected via an outdoor luminaire controller attached to the Zhaga-D4i socket. This allows the luminaires to transfer DALI luminaire, energy and diagnostics data to the Interact City connected lighting system, enabling users and customers to remotely manage, monitor, and control the city lights.

In some areas, lighting is regulated automatically according to vehicle and pedestrian traffic, using a Zhaga-D4i certified radar motion sensor.

The control system dynamically provides reports using energy consumption data and asset information, enabled by data stored in the D4i LED drivers. 

The judges noted that the system is future-ready due to the interoperability provided by standardized DALI and Zhaga-D4i technology. Overall, the new system has reduced energy consumption by more than 50%.


The Outdoor category featured street-lighting projects that exemplified the use of Zhaga-D4i technology.

LUG Light Factory and OSRAM DS were Highly Commended for the ongoing street lighting modernization project in Warsaw, Poland.

The scope of this large-scale project is to replace 38,000 legacy luminaires with LED fixtures, driven by the goal of saving energy and associated costs.

The Zhaga-D4i certified SAVA luminaires from LUG contain D4i drivers from OSRAM. This is a future-ready solution that can upgraded via the addition of lighting-management devices to the standardized Zhaga-D4i socket on each luminaire.

With D4i, the status of luminaires and their operating time can be monitored, allowing analysis and proper maintenance. D4i also provides energy consumption metering and other essential Smart-City functions.

The use of DALI enables lighting schemes to be adapted and changed. Overall the system provides the capability to manage all of the city’s lights from one access point.

The judges agreed that the project was a strong example of how a city should approach a comprehensive modernization program for its lighting infrastructure.
