LonMark Germany is in the process of organizing an Outdoor Lighting Conference to be held on 3 November 2016 in Aachen. The street lighting area continues to develop more and more into an open market. The cards are being shuffled once again and now is the time for new players to get into the game. LonMark Street Lighting offers a sustainable business model for Smart Grid /Smart City applications because it is open, vendor-neutral and the technical possibilities it provides. Working together with LonMark offers the opportunity to expand and help shape this emerging market. Whoever is in the game has a chance, and whoever isn’t doesn’t. More information about this conference will be available soon at www.lonmark.de.

In 2008, Saint Priest, a city located in southeast Lyon in France, was one of the first urban centers to trust a young start-up company named Citylone, a French-based designer and manufacturer of communicating automatisms for public lighting management. Seven years ago, Citylone provided the city with a system of 88 luminaries, all equipped with magnetic controllers based on the LonWorks® open communicating protocol to manage an urban lighting path. As a result, the city has experienced up to 65 percent decrease in energy consumption.
