LonMark's Ambassador Program has been involved with the new North America Streetlighting Spec: Model Specification for Adaptive Control and Remote Monitoring of LED Roadway Luminaires, V1.0.
Street Lighting Specification Released by U.S. Department of Energy.

The Department of Energy (DOE) Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium's Model Specification for Adaptive Control and Remote Monitoring of LED Roadway Luminaires is a tool designed to help cities, utilities, and other local agencies accelerate their adoption of systems that can further reduce the energy and maintenance costs of operating their streetlights.

The model specification provides both a suggested set of high-level requirements and a template for translating unique user needs into clear and consistent specification language. This version has undergone one public review cycle, where input from users, technology providers, and other industry stakeholders was used to determine: what requirements should be mandatory; how best to support the breadth of system architectures and features available in the marketplace; and where the development of standards that reduce user risk could be encouraged. The market for this technology and its commercial offerings are still in their infancy, however, and likely to evolve over time. This model specification is therefore intended to be a living that will likewise evolve to accommodate future changes in the market. To download the spec:

May 21, 2013 8 AM PDT: Power of Profiles - Register Today!

This session will provide an overview of device-function profiling and discuss the importance of this concept in creating interoperable systems. The session will elaborate on the concept of tightly defined information sharing in a contextual framework that allows integrators to have full control over the customization of a system for their clients – using off-the-shelf devices from a variety of vendors. For the end user the benefits of interoperability are combined with the standardization of profiled functions for thermostats, air handlers, lights, elevators, smoke alarms, and more. Attendees will be shown how strong data typing and profiling produce the building blocks for open controls systems.
Speaker: Jeremy J. Roberts, LonMark Technical Director

The Place Bellecour is a large square in Lyon, France that serves as the city’s focal point. This symbolic location is home to many special events throughout the year drawing tourists from all over. Because of its popularity the square must not only remain aesthetically pleasing but functional as well.

Place Bellecour, is part of a global renovation project launched by Grand Lyon, that includes renovation of public lighting led by the French light engineering office Les Eclairagistes Associés (LEA). The existing installation included 18 poles with four luminaries each at 18 meters high; two luminaries are equipped with 700W lamps that switch off at midnight and two luminaries equipped with 400W lamps that are always kept on.
