Most cities, streetlamps are ubiquitous, thetransition from conventional streetlamps to LED streetlamps presents a uniqueopportunity for smart city CIOs.Most LED streetlamp installations have some form of connectivity.In many cases, 2 this connectivity is used to monitor the streetlamp andmeter the power; in these cases, it has very low bandwidth and onlycommunicates occasionally with the server managing the system. However,streetlamps that have video or other smart city applications need a bit morebandwidth for communicating; this then gives the CIO the opportunity to buildon that network to create the needed citywide WAN with sufficient bandwidth tomanage future smart city projects. Streetlamp providers are partnering withCSPs to enable higher-bandwidth systems that can provide a citywide WAN, whichmay also prevent needing to have multiple networks within the smart cityinfrastructure. It may also prevent each smart city project from having its owndedicated WAN. As the CIOs plan their smart lighting project and look forwardto other smart city implementations, they will need to think ahead to ensure:?That they have provided enough bandwidth for futureprojects, or that they have the ability to add bandwidth in the future at areasonable cost.?That they have installed streetlamps in the criticalpositions to ensure the system can communicate smoothly.
City CIOs will need towork closely with their lamp post provider of choice, internal public works departmentsand CSPs to ensure they have installed the best lighting and communicationsnetwork for their smart city rollout. CIOs need to think to the future andcreate different scenarios to help them better define their smart streetlampand smart city roadmaps.That’s why we have to install a communications networkthat will create the backbone for your smart city infrastructure whenimplementing the LED street lamps and they can save energy efficiently 2 Beside Heating, cooling and lighting are responsiblefor approximately 60% of a building’s energy consumption.? New BMSs, building automation systems (BASs) andEMSs that will measure energy consumption are emerging that can help targetsystems with high energy consumption.? Implementing a BMS or EMS can reduce energyconsumption by 50%.? This energyreduction also will lead to compliance with energy-related GHG emissionregulations and standards, which are driven by the Environmental ProtectionAgency (EPA) in the U.S. or the Horizon 2020 goals in Europe.
Market Implications:Sustainability and energy management 1 are becominga much larger focus of the C-level office suite. This is good for theenvironment from a carbon footprint perspective, and it also makes goodeconomic sense. Companies are also finding that the environment in the officeis important to employees, and some companies are using the capability ofemployees controlling their own environment as a retention tool. According tothe Department of Energy (DOE), the heating and cooling of a building accountsfor approximately 40% of a building’s energy use. Lighting consumes anadditional 20% of a building’s energy much of this is waste. Buildingstypically turn on the lighting, heating and cooling systems early in themorning and then turn them off again late in the evening, regardless ofoccupancy. BMSs, EMSs and BASs are beginning to introduce systems and softwareto help CIOs.
These systems vary from energy-measuring software packages thatprovide dashboards of energy usage, to integrated BMSs that send real-time dataand alerts and that can create work orders. The CIO will need to decide, alongwith their steering committee, if they want a system that just measures thedata, or if they want a system that will react to the data.Implementing anintegrated BMS for lighting, 1 heating and cooling can reduce the energyconsumption for each of those systems. For lighting, there have been multiplereports that if the company implements a smart LED’s lighting system, a 60% to70% savings could be realized.
By integrating the HVAC system with occupancyand building utilization, savings close to 50% can be achieved. The combinedsavings will make a significant contribution to the smart cities’ energysavings. The integrated BMS can also tie all of the building systems together —for example, lighting, plug load, heating and cooling, fire and safety,occupancy, elevators, and others.
It can give the facility’s managementreal-time energy consumption and provideinformation for cause-and-effect correlation, thereby simplifying thejob of the facilities manager in tracking down where and how energy is beingconsumed. A fully integrated system can also be designed to automaticallygenerate work orders for emergency situations and preventive maintenance,enabling the facilities team to be proactive and potentially limiting downtimeor major failures of the HVAC systems.Recommendations:? Implement integrated BMSs as soon as possible tohelp your company begin to realize energy savings and improve sustainability.? Consider BMSs that are proactive (that is, systemsthat not only monitor, but also react to energy excursions and provide actionsto bring these deviations under control).? Implement a BMS/BAS that integrates the majorbuilding subsystems, making them easier to monitor from one dashboard.Beside surveillance cameras can be combined with smartstreetlights, on street parking solutions and extended with EV chargingstations
