Sir Humphry Davy, 1st Baronet (17 December 1778 - 29 May 1829) was a Cornish chemist and inventor, who is best remembered today for his discoveries of several alkali and alkaline earth metals, as well as contributions to the discoveries of the elemental nature of chlorine and iodine.
In 1802, Humphry Davy had what was then, the most powerful electrical battery in the world at the Royal Institution. With it, Davy created the first incandescent light by passing a current through a thin strip of platinum, chosen because the metal had an extremely high melting point. It was neither sufficiently bright nor long lasting enough to be of practical use, but demonstrated the principle. By 1806 he was able to demonstrate a much more powerful form of electric lighting to the Royal Society in London. It was an early form of arc light which produced its illumination from an electric arc created between two charcoal rods.

4. Britain's first street lighting Rotten Row is a track in Hyde Park, linking up Hyde Park Corner and the Serpentine. It's been there since the 1690s, and its claim to fame is that it had Britain's first street lighting. King William III had it built and used it regularly to travel on horseback between Kensington Palace and St James's Palace. Due to the prevalence of highwaymen in the area at the time, he had it lit with 300 gas lamps. The name Rotten Row is a corruption of the French Route du Roi, meaning King's Road.
Hello Fernando - interesting project! 1852 is pretty early for records and my Sugg literature on sun burners is some 30 years later although it has to be said that the same products were often manufactured for many years.
