The Welsh capital has over 340,000 residents and welcomes 20 million visitors annually. By migrating its city lighting to a connected smart lighting system, the Council benefited from over 60% energy savings by switching to LED, and enabled the management of over 14,000 luminaires via a centralized Interact City lighting management dashboard.
“Our connected lighting will contribute to a safer environment for the citizens of Cardiff and will enable the city to achieve savings in energy and gain operational efficiencies. It provides a scalable and flexible digital infrastructure which gives the city options for the future, such as inputting data into smart city dashboards or adding sensors that could, for example, monitor noise or traffic,” said Jacques Letzelter, Head of Public Lighting for Philips Lighting. “It’s fitting that Cardiff represents the 1,000th project to use our Interact City street lighting management software: a city and a technology shaping the future.”
