Rethinking urban energy: How Europe is leading the way – | LIGHTING-Innovation-Design | Scoop.it
To achieve ambitious climate goals in line with the Paris Agreement, cities will need to implement major changes to their energy systems by 2030. The good news is that the transformation in the energy sector is making such ambitious programmes much more feasible and European cities are in the forefront, writes Eric Woods.

PV - Vermont?s largest solar parking lot deploys innovative panels on Burlington waterfront

PV - Vermont?s largest solar parking lot deploys innovative panels on Burlington waterfront | LIGHTING-Innovation-Design | Scoop.it
The 156kWp solar carport at the ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain employs innovative two-sided panels that capture reflected light as well as the direct rays of the sun, increasing its output. It was built by a public-private partnership for the Science Museum on the Burlington waterfront, constructed at the same time as a new parking lot and a state-of-the-art stormwater pollution control system built by ECHO and the City of Burlington to help improve the water quality in Burlington’s inner harbor. “We are so pleased to have been able to work with ECHO and the City of Burlington in delivering this important project” said Chad Farrell, Chief Executive Officer of Burlington-based Encore Renewable Energy, which built and will operate the array. “This project is a strong example of the forward-looking thinking and action that we need from municipalities, non-profits and other organisations below the national level, to advance the clean energy economy and address the negative impacts of climate change.” The solar canopy project required complex engineering. Encore had to design for varying lakefront water levels, high winds, specific truck and bus traffic patterns at the Science Museum, and existing underground infrastructure. Due to ECHO’s location in Burlington’s previously industrialised waterfront, soil and water quality were continuously monitored throughout construction, in strict adherence to the State of Vermont’s regulatory process for environmentally contaminated property. “The opportunity is finding ways to take urban settings in which we already have high land use, like a parking lot, and turning it into renewable power production” added Phelan Fretz, Executive Director of ECHO. The project design called for innovative bifacial, or two-sided, solar panels to increase the electricity generated by capturing albedo light, the short-wave solar radiation reflected from the parking lot, parked vehicles and nearby lake surface. This higher output will increase the overall savings for the Science Museum. Encore was responsible for coordinating and managing all aspects of the project including navigating the complex lakefront environmental and geotechnical issues, project design, permitting, financing, construction, and commissioning. In addition, Encore and one of its financing partners will own, operate and maintain the project. ECHO was Vermont’s first LEED certified building when it was built in 2003. The building already features solar panels on the roof, natural lighting, passive heating and cooling, smart lighting, and specially controlled HVAC systems, built from renewable materials and locally sourced supplies.

How to light pedestrian crossings

How to light pedestrian crossings | LIGHTING-Innovation-Design | Scoop.it
The technical bits Luminaires should be installed 1m from the pedestrian crossing and use a low mounting height of 5-6m. As a general rule – the lower the better.  Luminaires need to be as glare free as possible to ensure maximum visibility through the crossing area, as pedestrians will often try to cross short of the crossing itself. Flat glass luminaires are therefore best. A contrasting lamp colour from the surrounding road lighting is recommended as an effective way to highlight the carpet, for example white light on the crossing in a high pressure Sodium (SON) road installation. The same effect can be achieved in LED schemes with a simple change in colour temperature. Finally, the light distribution from the luminaire needs to provide high levels of vertical illuminance onto the crossing pedestrians, to ensure that they are visible to approaching motorists. TR12 recommends three separate vertical calculation planes, covering the width of the crossing to ensure good visibility of the pedestrian.

Downtown gets free 1GB Wi-Fi; 'smart parking' next

Downtown gets free 1GB Wi-Fi; 'smart parking' next | LIGHTING-Innovation-Design | Scoop.it
Downtown gets free 1GB Wi-Fi; 'smart parking' next Montgomery Advertiser Published 5:06 PM EST Jan 16, 2019 Montgomery has launched free 1-gigabyte Wi-Fi through the central part of downtown, and bigger changes are on the way. Plans include street cameras, an upgraded fiber network, 22,000 new LED lights and “smart parking” through an app, all part of a wider effort to create a “Smart City Living Lab” in the heart of the city. "Smart cities are the ones that will survive in the next few years, and we will be a survivor," Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange said. "And we’re going to march forth and be the example, throughout Alabama." The free internet service quietly launched along Commerce Street and Dexter Avenue earlier this month, paid for by the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce. Connecting takes you to a splash page that features local attractions. It's now being expanded to offer wider coverage. Meanwhile, Alabama Power has been laying a new fiberoptic network across downtown, from the MGMix internet exchange near the state Capitol building to the Riverfront. Its next project is to convert 22,000 street lights to LEDs. A city spokesman said that project will cost taxpayers less than $50,000 initially, and that it’s expected to save the city over $650,000 in the next five years. Cloudy skies are seen over the Court Square Fountain just after the sun sets in downtown Montgomery, Ala., on Friday November 30, 2018. Mickey Welsh / Advertiser The next stage of work includes the installation of street cameras and “other public safety initiatives,” the city said, as well as a move to app-based "smart parking." The latter will let people find available spots or pay for parking on their mobile device. That’s coming “very soon,” powered by the new fiber network, a city spokesman said. The idea is turn that stretch of downtown into an area rich with technology infrastructure that can be used to grow businesses while also building on public data that the city uses to shape its services. It’s backed by a partnership that includes Alabama Power, the city, the county and the chamber. “Having something like downtown Wi-Fi, having well-lit streets, having safety cameras, different avenues like that make someone more apt to want to visit that area (or) reside in that area,” TechMGM Executive Director Charisse Stokes said. “But also, if you’re a business it makes you want to set up shop there or expand. We’re not making a technology investment for just one category or individual.” They announced the plans at a Wednesday news conference from the Alley development along Commerce Street, an area that’s grown as a tourist hub over the past decade. It’s surrounded by a mix of local professional service firms, restaurants and tech-focused startups like MGMWERX, which launched last year as an innovation center serving Air University. More: Military wants mobile game for space training Most of the fiber has already been laid across downtown. Alabama Power Southern Division Vice President Leslie Sanders pointed to construction work along the street near the news conference. Now, she said they're focused on planning for how to make the most of it. "It’s one thing to put up a camera. It’s one thing to put fiber in the street," Sanders said. "It’s connecting it when the magic happens. That’s what this alliance will start working on." Local systems engineer and longtime startup evangelist Boyd Stephens told the Montgomery Advertiser last year that a “living lab” concept could be Montgomery’s niche in the regional tech scene. “You’ve got the infrastructure to support it,” Stephens said. “Where else can you come experiment on your app, or your web portal, or your device? And you can do so inexpensively because we’re Montgomery. Now we’re mitigating risk. “That’s our hook into that cycle of Atlanta, Chattanooga, Huntsville and Birmingham. You’ve got a Facebook data center and a Google data center right there. What can we as Montgomery offer that regional talent? Well, they could come build and experiment.” Sanders said Wednesday there are private companies and government entities in central Alabama that want to test problems and solutions locally instead of going somewhere else to do it. "We can be that place," she said.   Published 5:06 PM EST Jan 16, 2019
