The City of Stockholm – in line with its goal to become the world’s smartest city by the year 2040 – has plans to deploy the Itron smart city central management software, Streetlight Vision (SLV), in order to manage streetlights, improve energy efficiency, and optimize performance.
“Through innovation, openness and connectivity, we are making Stockholm more economically, ecologically and socially sustainable,” said Maria Holm, project manager of the Stockholm smart and connected lighting project. “Smart street lighting is a vital component of this strategy because it provides immediate energy savings, helps us achieve our sustainability goals, and lays the groundwork for our future smart city vision. Itron will be an important and innovative partner in our work to achieve the goal of becoming the smartest city in the world.”
The smart lighting deployment will provide an interoperable, secure and scalable network that is capable of supporting a range of smart city applications – including delivering advanced asset management, analytics and control capabilities. Itron claims to provide up to 50% energy savings and 20% operational savings, lighting failure detection & outage response, and dynamic dimming.
“Delivering proven energy savings while laying a foundation for digital transformation, our intelligent streetlight management solution will enable Stockholm to unlock efficiencies with the ability to scale and enable future smart city applications from our vibrant and growing partner ecosystem,” said Itai Dadon, director of smart cities and IoT at Itron. “We are excited to be a part of the City of Stockholm’s smart city strategy.”
