Karl Rourke

Service Manager Street Lighting, Traffic Signals and CCTV, East Riding of Yorkshire Council

I joined East Riding of Yorkshire Council as a Lighting Engineer in 2010 from a background of private sector emergency lighting.  I have overseen an eight-year £8m energy reduction programme and three-year £12m column replacement programme.

I became service manager in 2021 and am now overseeing a further £2m energy reduction investment, involved in our smart counties program and project manager for our Live Labs program with a view to decarbonising the highway visual environment.
