Cities are responsible for around two thirds of the energy used and 70 percent of all greenhouse gases produced worldwide. Because of this sustainable cities are looking at ways to improve their infrastructures to become more environmentally friendly, increase the quality of life for their residents, and cut costs at the same time.

Public lighting accounts for an estimated 30% of city expenditures and a significant portion of greenhouse gas emissions. Replacing high energy-consuming luminaries with high-efficiency ones improves the situation, but the greatest benefits are achieved with a proven, open standard, multi-application control network, as these customer stories show.
Cities are responsible for a range of assets including transportation, healthcare facilities and parks, fountains and other public infrastructure. These need to operate smoothly, safely and efficiently to meet cities’ urbanization goals while minimizing ongoing operational expense.
