Seeking New Energy Efficiency and Smart City Solutions for Street Lighting


ADNOC is seeking innovative energy efficiency solutions for the street lighting systems within Ruwais City. The current street lighting systems are conventional; the lights are turned on in the evening, left on throughout the night and then turned off in the daytime.

In addition to energy-efficiency solutions, ADNOC is seeking proposals on how to best leverage street lighting as an extension of Ruwais City’s emerging “Smart City” infrastructure, wherein the streetlamps themselves are the platform upon which smart devices could be connected and/or mounted.


The solutions must not affect public safety or the usability of the street, and should strive to minimize payback period and maximize ROI.

ADNOC is also seeking innovative uses of streetlamps as an infrastructure for Smart City applications, including, but not limited to, real-time data collection, human or vehicular traffic management, and public engagement. Proposals that can address all the abovementioned requirements will be assessed favourably.   

ADNOC will be keen to roll out successful test-bed solutions for city-wide implementation.

Development Timeframe

A three phase approach will be adopted for this challenge.

•    Phase 1: Selection of proposals
•    Phase 2: Prototype + Testbed on an existing street
•    Phase 3: Implement of a small-scale trial (at neighborhood or arterial road level) before ADNOC 
                     decides on scaling-up the solution
