'[TECH]NXP - Solar powered LED street lights'
NXP have announced a concept street light at CES2012 which uses their new MPT610 IC with Philips LED street lighting division.
They claim the technology allows street lamps to be upto 50m apart and still provide the same spread of illumination as current light fittings.

The HPS high mast lighting units used on major highways in the Toronto area are
spaced more than 50m apart- more like 125m. They are equipped with self-lowering devices
to cut maintenance costs- much better than the old cobra neck fixtures- a couple
of guys in a small truck can do all the maintenance.
There are some experimental LED fixtures on a non-controlled-access road near my home,
but I don't think they are as good as the newer non-LED type (some kind of
white-light discharge lamp)- they're installed side by side, so it's easy to compare.
I suspect this kind of solar/battery streetlight will be mostly applicable to
lighting footpaths through wooded areas and such like, at least in the first world,
since the actual light output won't be very impressive.
