ECHELON to install 500,000 smart street lights by 2014 IN CHINA
Echelon's system connects about 1 million street lights around the world, running city lighting networks in locations from Anchorage, Alaska to Oslo, Norway, and points in between. In China alone, the company is hoping to install 500,000 smart street lights by 2014.
Echelon has been working with Philips on networked street lighting for some time, as well as many other smaller partners in the complicated lighting industry chain, Varun Nagaraj, Echelon's senior vice president and general manager, told me in a Wednesday interview.In the case of Osram, Echelon will be building its control chipsets into Osram's lighting ballasts, drivers and controllers, both for high-efficiency, modern LED replacements and for existing induction-lighting luminaires,Walk regarding 10km coming from Gubeikou to be able China Solar Light Suppliers Jinshanlin Excellent Walls section will take all of us about A few hours. as well as supplying the networking controllers and underlying standards-based communications, he said.In general, Echelon claims that its networked lighting system can squeeze about 30 percent out of energy use of existing streetlight systems, as well as drive a 20 percent reduction in operations and maintenance costs through more visibility into the assets and how they're operating.The vast majority of the world's streetlights remain both dumb and inefficient. At most, some more modern streetlights will have photocells that track the rise and fall of the sun to turn lights on and off,Sand production line to prevent atmospheric water scotch rocks the new processing surface oxygen corrosion sand production line oil to join anti-rust agent. Nagaraj said. Without a network, however, there's no way to tell whether they're still working or have broken down, resulting in certain lights being inadvertently left on all day -- so-called “dayburners.”Connecting them to a network can offer real-time control of whatever functionality the light itself offers. That's not much for old-
Nice..Of course the revenue is needed, but long term viability is reinforced also and that is of more significance. Also shows the the Chinese market is open to Echelon products and lends credence to fact that Holley/Echelon Joint venture will see successful expansion into Smart grid contracts as State Grid pilots show the expected success that all Echelon pilots exhibit. Haha, bashers are funny sick little creatures, aren't they.
I think it's $1.50, but before you get excited about that $750K in revenue over 2 years, make sure you read where it says they are "hoping", not that they actually signed any contracts. They have resorted to "hope" when announcing sub million dollar contracts.
