Billion Electric, a leading networking and energy management solutions provider, has become strategic partners of numerous LED streetlight vendors to deploy its Smart Streetlight Control Solution (LCMS) for a city-wide street light infrastructure project.
This will see LCMS providing automatic dimming and energy saving controls based on environmental illumination, motion, and regional sunrise and sunset schedules.
Billion is in collaboration with the Bureau of Energy, Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs, to expand its system capacity controlling up to 6,000 street lights for a freeway project.
The company’s LCMS successfully manages over 412 streetlights at four different street sites that are approximately 20km long.
The smart streetlight project that it has done is the largest urban installation in Taiwan that connects streetlights with IoT (Internet of Things), highlighting centralised asset management, street light failure notification, and enhanced public security
The technology utilises the BPL (Broadband Power-Line) technology to overcome signal instability, elongated installation, and system inflexibility. It provides a strong integration flexibility that can be adopted by international LED streetlight partners who wish to invest their lighting fixtures in bidding for national smart street light tenders.
For 412 street lights projects in Taipei, the company has helped achieve an average of 78% decrease in utility consumption and CO2 emission while delivering a faster payback period.
Martin Chang, Product Manager of Billion Electric, said his company can help cities around the world to modernise their street light infrastructure to lower operational maintenance costs, maximise energy efficiency and enhance citizen safety through the open networking platform.”
