With Genoa for a sustainable public lighting

Published On: April 1, 2021|Categories: Case histories|Tags: , , , |1.6 min read|

The municipality of Genoa has started in august 2020 to work on replacing more than 55 thousand streetlights. A project in which Sidora is collaborating and that is going to help the city reduce 14.000 tonnes of CO2 emissions and save almost 7 million Euro. An important journey with the objective of enhancing the city energy efficiency.

In order to achieve this result, the municipality of Genoa has joined the CONSIP Convention called “Servizio Luce 4”, for the provision of lighting and other optional services to public Administrations.

In this context, the new provider City Green Light has asked Sidora to design and realize the remote monitoring system. In order to carry out the project, 480 SMU1000 and SCS2020 devices have been used to monitor 55.600 lighting units, in compliance with PELL system. The PELL (Public Energy Living Lab) Platform, initiated and created by ENEA, is a tool for gathering, organizing, handling, processing and evaluating every data detected with the purpose of guaranteeing an efficient and effective management.

Sidora is already PELL compliant. Our SMU devices are devoted to complex projects of remote monitoring and managing, and allow the enhancement of advanced remote monitoring solutions for Smart Cities. When installed to the electrical panel, they allow a full control, 24/7, of every monitored system.

The SCS2020 device, compact and modular, is provided with an advanced self-diagnosis system. Such system enables the continuous check of its internal components status, in order to take action way before any problem can possibly jeopardise the quality of service, allowing to keep the city always efficient.

The transition to Led lighting brings many benefits: reduced energy consumption (60.000 hours), maintenance cost saving, better security and a lower environmental impact.

Sidora has invested heavily in becoming the ideal partner for the cities of tomorrow. We are proud to be working alongside City Green Light and to be a part of this project that is going to make Genoa the first great city to adhere to ENEA’s PELL system.
