Intelligent Lighting Solutions

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: 2012

Location: the Netherlands

The energy required to power the 91 million streetlights in Europe represents an energy bill of over EUR 10 billion and results in over 40 million tons of CO2 emissions (the equivalent of 20 million cars) per year. This is a large waste of resources, in particular when lighting streets when no one is around.

Based on a patented presence detection solution, our adaptive control products offer on-demand lighting, meaning the right amount of light when and where it is necessary. Our products are suitable for both traditional (PLL, SON, HID) as well as new LED street lamps reducing energy consumption by up to 80% and maintenance costs by up to 50%.
