With various cities throughout the world investing in modern street lighting, cities are beginning to become more contemporary in design. Whether the fixtures are in Paris or Los Angeles, these streetlights offer far more than just light on a dark street.

Los Angeles, California boosted its revenue this year when it began displaying the Smartpole, which boosts LTE reception and saves energy. Cities in Spain have also invested in green street lighting with the development of the Eolgreen turbine lamppost, which is powered by wind.

These modern street lighting innovations also include tech-friendly lampposts such as a range of concepts by Marshalls. These ideas include streetlights designed for the disabled, making these lights far more responsive than most.
