The TALQ Consortium formally updated its consortium scope to address smart city applications beyond smart outdoor lighting. The new objective of the TALQ Consortium is to extend its standardized software protocol for use between Central Management Systems and generic Outdoor Devices Networks to enable compatibility between systems from different verticals.
Combining LEDs with integrated controls and sensors, luminaire level lighting controls (LLLC) offer customers a single solution that will improve their building, deliver maximum energy savings and enable long-term flexibility. Check out this infographic courtesy of the Northwest Lighting Network …
The DesignLights Consortium’s (DLC) new report, Energy Savings from Networked Lighting Control (NLC) Systems, estimates average lighting energy savings of 47% resulting from installation of networked lighting control systems. The report indicates high potential energy savings for networked controls, supports layered control strategies as a means to maximize savings, and may be used to justify new and larger utility rebates.
