Download - Copenhagen building the foundation for multiple smart city applications

Copenhagen has set the ambitious goal of becoming carbon neutral by the year 2025, and is transforming how it manages energy use, traffic systems and emergency response.
Published: Tue 17 Jul 2018

Copenhagen’s commitment to the smart city transformation begins, in part, through more efficient and networked street lighting systems supported by Itron.

Key stakeholders are taking a comprehensive approach to re-thinking 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. Copenhagen chose Itron and partners Citelum and SELC to deploy an enhanced city lighting system designed to improve energy efficiency, lower operational costs, enable remote lighting management and control, and improve citizen safety. The goal is to install and network 20,000 LED streetlights throughout the city and provide a flexible network that can then support many other smart city applications.
