Trensition supports The Beacon with scouting emerging technology trends related to urban infrastructure and public lighting in cities.

Case: The Beacon
Sector: Government

The trend insights provided by Trendtracker were an excellent complement to the desk research and interviews we did on the future of public lighting.

I especially appreciated global insights, the diversity of the sourced material, from academic publications to foreign news articles. Aside from providing excellent technology, Trensition also provided excellent customer support.

Strategic Question

What are technology trends and emerging innovations related to urban public lighting


 What trends are interesting to analyze within the future of lighting.

 What’s going on within an urban context and beyond that poses opportunities .

 What are interesting cities’ and other case studies on a global scale.


The city of Antwerp uses more than 50,000 light points across its entire territory for its public lighting. In order to make these sustainable and manage them within a structured vision a Lighting Plan for the city was revised, which is now being put into practice. The recommendations of the plan are always taken into account when constructing and reconstructing public areas. In this way, the city remains an attractive environment at night and during the day.


Tailored Trend Radar was build together with The Beacon. The digital trend board was tailored and key trends were identified. A 360° Trend Analysis was performed on academic papers, patents, emerging technology scouting among others.  

Intersting case studies from global cities were extracted and delivered as an inspiration point to the community.
