Why do we need a smart street lighting management system?
These are some of the reasons that justify using a smart street lighting management system:
- Street lighting consumption which exceeds that indicated in the annual electricity cost per inhabitant is more than 118 kWh in Spain. In France it is approximately 25% less and in Germany, where there are fewer daylight hours per year, it is no more than 40% of Spain's consumption.
- In most municipalities street lighting takes up over 40% of energy consumption.
- 40% is wasted as light pollution.
- 50% of street lighting use time could be controlled.
Street lighting management system elements
The efficient street lighting management system consists of CirLamp modules installed at the lighting points and the CirLamp Manager which is responsible for managing the entire network of units and is installed in the electrical cabinet.
