The reduction of energy consumption is a growing concern at the global level. An important domain where the reduction of energy consumption can be achieved is public lighting. Energy charges for street and pedestrian lighting applications represent the largest part of all expenses for public lighting. This is conditioned by many factors, one of them being the use of energy inefficient lamps and ballasts. This paper's goal is to present and underline possibilities to reduce energy consumption in

Some solutions used nowadays to increase efficiency in public lighting are represented in the paper. The results of a search regarding to existing solutions to fulfill the increase of the public lighting network performances will be presented. These will include energy efficient solutions for every type of lamp and energy efficient solutions for lamp and ballast combination used in street and pedestrian lighting applications.
