Each month, LonMark International features a company, organization or individual committed to the development, manufacture and use of open, multi-vendor control systems utilizing ISO/IEC 14908-1 and related standards.

With the restructuring of the businesses branded by the Fuji Electric Group in October 2003, Fuji Electric Systems Co., Ltd. and Fuji Electric's Energy & Electric Systems Company have merged into a newborn Fuji Electric Systems Co., Ltd. We pledge to offer optimized product and service solutions, evolving from our core competence of energy management, power electronics, water environmental and maintenance service technologies, to address environmental and energy issues of global concern, and issues relevant to the social and industrial infrastructures needed to build a richer living environment.

Over the summer months in Arizona, electric consumption is especially high and sales are often down. No matter the season, however, restaurants use about 5 to 7 times more energy per square foot than other commercial buildings (according to EnergyStar.com), with family dining restaurants potentially using up to 10 times more energy. In fact, energy use often ranks fourth among expenses for restaurants and convenience stores, with lighting and refrigeration taking up much of the rest.

LonMark International will continue its presence at Light+Building 2016 by exhibiting in the Urban Lighting section located in Hall 5 of Messe Frankfurt. At Light+Building 2014 eleven members of LonMark International demonstrated an open Outdoor Control Solution to over 500 hundred potential customers. The demonstration showed LonMark certified products from several competing companies connected together in the same streetlight network.
