Smart Street Light Network (Copenhagen)
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.

Smart City OperationsSmart city operations include the range of solutions required to enable smart city concepts by integrating Information and Communication Technology with senors and connected devices to optimize the efficiency of city operations and services. Smart city technology allows city officials to interact with both community members and city infrastructure and to monitor situation in the city in real time. Benefits for city managers include Tracking events in the city in real time, managing congestion, improving operational efficiency, reducing emergency response times, and enabling remote management. Modern solutions will aim to integrate all city data into a single dashboard. Both historical and current KPIs are measured to conduct performance reviews and gap analysis, and to plan future infrastucture and service investments.
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. Copenhagen’s commitment to the smart city transformation begins, in part, through more efficient and networked street lighting systems supported by Silver Spring Networks.
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.
