The Challenge

Key stakeholders are taking a comprehensive approach to rethinking smart city innovation. City leaders have collaborated through partnerships involving government, research institutions and solution providers. The Copenhagen Solutions Lab is one of the leading organizations at the forefront of this movement. By bringing together manufacturers with municipal buyers, the Copenhagen Solutions Lab has catalyzed the development and deployment of next-generation smart city innovations. Copenhagen is leveraging this unique approach to accelerate the implementation of smart city solutions. One of the primary focus areas is LED street lighting.

The Customer
About The Customer
Copenhagen, one of the world’s most sustainable and smartest cities, as set the ambitious goal of becoming carbon neutral by the year 2025. For that reason, the city is transforming how it manages energy use, traffic systems and emergency response.
The Solution

Copenhagen chose Silver Spring Networks and partners Citelum and SELC to deploy an enhanced city lighting system designed to improve energy effi ciency, lower operational costs, enable remote lighting management and control, and improve citizen safety. The goal is to install and network 20,000 LED street lights throughout the city, and provide a flexible network that can then support many other smart city applications.

Operational Impact
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Energy]
    Highly efficient LED fixtures ensure energy savings and a better quality of light.
  • [Process Optimization - Remote Control]
    Real-time visibility, monitoring, and control improves asset and resource efficiency.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - R&D]
    Ongoing application development and improvements are relatively quick and inexpensive to implement due to the system's flexibility.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Replacing its high-pressure sodium lamps with highly efficient LED fixtures that not only provide a better quality of light but also ensure energy savings of 65%.

  • Remote lighting management and control of 20,000 LED street lights throughout the city. The fusion of intersection-based occupancy sensors and light controls to sense an approaching bicyclist and provide extra light as they cross vehicle intersections.
