Smart Lighting in Copenhagen (Denmark): Sustainable Infrastructure Grand Prize Winner - Green Solutions Awards 2018

Beyond representing up to 40% of a city’s energy budget, lighting is also a way to improve its safety and aesthetics. 

Produced by Citelum, the EDF Group’s intelligent lighting subsidiary and related connected service, the renovation of the Copenhagen public lighting is the largest public lighting project in the capital. 

The work carried out is in line with the city’s goals of achieving carbon neutrality by 2025 by reducing energy expenditure, improving the safety of residents, improving mobility, increasing local identity and its attractiveness.

In 3 years, 18,800 light points, half of Copenhagen’s lighting park, have been replaced by LED luminaires. Consumption monitoring, maintenance and interventions planning over the next 9 years and communication with the city services are based on the MUSE® digital platform

The project also helped to establish a city-wide communication network to adjust lighting levels according to Copenhagen areas, traffic and identified needs. 

For example, the intensity of lighting has been increased on the roads to make users, especially pedestrians and cyclists, more visible. In addition, the new lighting network offers many opportunities to connect new services in the future: video protection cameras, noise and air quality sensors can further improve the safety and quality of life of citizens and transform Copenhagen into a real "Smart City".
