NEW PILOT IN ZEIST (NL)

The EDISON solution has been successfully implemented in a new building in Zeist (The Netherland) and is currently running.

The building is a Mosque and the EDISON platform involves two areas of about 100sqm including 64  LEDtubes.  www.moskeezeist.nl/

In the following some pictures of the implementation.

In this paper, we propose a holistic approach to raise building efficiency, consisting in: i) a smart ICT-based monitoring and control system, relying on wired and wireless sensors and actuators, that uses the existing lighting infrastructure as cabled data link; ii) an innovative lighting network, low voltage direct current powered, integrating photovoltaic systems and Solid State Lamps (SSLs). Moreover, we discuss compliancy with emerging communication standards, with focus on domotics and building automation.
