The Most Investable Opportunity in Cities is Hidden in Plain Sight

For proof of what one simple technology can do to bring a city into the future, look at what a simple change of light bulbs have achieved already in one major global city: Buenos Aires.

Buenos Aires replaced 91,000 light points with LEDs, the most promising current technology for smarter lights.

The result: A whopping 50% drop in the city’s carbon emissions. For just changing a few light bulbs, that’s a big step towards Buenos Aires’ plan to be carbon-neutral by 2030.[^1]

Buenos Aires is far from alone. In the New York City residential market, there’s a chance to install up to 32 billion LEDs.
