Carried out by Citelum, the EDF Group's intelligent lighting subsidiary and associated connected services, the renovation of Copenhagen's light points is the capital's largest public lighting project.
The work carried out is part of the city's desire to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025, in particular by reducing its energy expenditure, strengthening the security of its inhabitants, improving mobility and increasing its local identity and attractiveness?
In 3 years, 18,800 light points, half of Copenhagen's lighting fleet, have been replaced by LED lights. Citelum will maintain the lighting for the remaining 9 years of the contract (12 years in total) and will use its digital MUSE® platform to plan interventions, monitor equipment consumption levels and communicate quickly with the city's technical services.
The project also helped to set up a city-wide communication network to adjust lighting levels according to Copenhagen areas, traffic and identified needs.
For example, the intensity of lighting on roads has been increased 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 such as video protection cameras, noise and air quality sensors to further improve the safety and quality of life of citizens and further transform Copenhagen into a Smart City.

- strengthen citizens' sense of security,
- secure and smooth travel,
- support the city's strong environmental commitments,
- increase activity in the city and strengthen local identity.
- On main roads, in addition to lighting roads according to current standards, lighting on bicycle paths and sidewalks has been increased compared to standards, a result that has already been widely supported by users. The same applies to lighting around schools and public institutions.
- On secondary roads, in residential areas and in villages, smaller lamps have been installed to create an impression of human-sized space and to signal to road users that they are travelling in a quieter urban area.

More than an optimized CMMS, MUSE® offers many benefits to effectively monitor and organize the urban heritage of cities.
On the MUSE® platform, all urban equipment is recorded with its history and geolocation.
This information is then used to define preventive maintenance rounds, plan renewals and manage malfunction problems.
In the case of the Copenhagen contract, the city services and Citelum teams are quickly alerted via the platform of potential failures and are thus able to quickly coordinate repairs and restart the equipment.
MUSE® is also used to monitor the consumption level of equipment. Using reliable reports and indicators, Copenhagen identifies sources of high consumption in order to take the necessary measures to reduce energy costs and conserve resources.
MUSE® has 2 500 users in 12 countries. 1.7 M of connected objects and equipment are hosted on the platform (light points, traffic lights, cameras, sensors...)
