Romanian City to Deploy Echelon Energy Control Networking Technology

The City of Brasov, Romania, will deploy over the next three years Echelon energy control technology for smart, networked street lighting systems citywide, Echelon announced today. The decision follows the city’s yearlong test of the technology in a neighbourhood that led to the city saving 28% on its energy bills and 40% on maintenance costs. Brasov also achieved more control over its streetlights and gained the ability to efficiently distribute power to other applications on the grid.
