Smart lighting in Pozuelo de Alarcón

Energy efficiency with Tridonic LED drivers

Location: Pozuelo de Alarcón/Spain

The Spanish town of Pozuelo de Alarcón saves more than 50 percent in energy costs while getting closer to its ambitious climate targets – all thanks to the state-of-the-art, energy-efficient and centrally controllable lighting solution. Tridonic has equipped the municipality with 2,700 smart, dimmable LED drivers for the entire outdoor area.

The municipal authority of Pozuelo de Alarcón has decided to equip the existing lighting infrastructure with new, state-of-the-art, energy-saving technology. Since peer-to-peer communication in the town was already using the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) protocol, the new luminaires had to be compatible with this technology.

Smart lighting with energy-efficient LED technology

Tridonic supplied highly energy-efficient constant current LED drivers for the city’s innovative smart lighting solution. Project partner INELCOM INGENIERIA ELECTRONICA COMERCIAL designed a total of 2,700 smart, dimmable luminaires fitted with intelligent LED technology. The devices are part of a fully networked lighting concept and can be controlled and monitored centrally from the cloud. The operator therefore benefits from a precise schedule for maintenance work, alarm messages, clear consumption diagrams as well as sophisticated fault management. The Tridonic drivers were integrated in each individual luminaire. Four different luminaire types were used – classic luminaires (Villa), street lights (Vial), luminaires for parks and gardens and decorative luminaires for residential areas and green spaces.

Since the new lighting infrastructure was put into operation the town has been able to fully meet its high energy efficiency requirements. By switching to LED technology, power consumption has been reduced by more than 50 percent. Further energy savings result from the use of individual dimming profiles. And the inhabitants of Pozuelo de Alarcón also benefit from the upgrade: Visually attractive luminaires with a particularly warm and pleasant light improve the quality of life in the town.
