The vision of SUS – Smart Urban Services - is to contribute to a more sustainable and less energy consuming society and to make Denmark a global leading nation in the development, use, and export of Smart City technologies based on the latest research and green community transition. This will be achieved by the establishment of test facilities that allow companies within the green tech sector to test their smart city solutions based on I-o-E network and sensor technologies in large scale realistic environments. The overall expected impacts are a shorter time to market and significant reductions in CO2 emissions by efficiency optimisation in several green tech sectors, starting with lighting and outdoor infrastructure and service sectors, who are already involved.
The mission is to create a unique innovation platform - driven by advanced technologies with photonics as a central domain and based on a proprietary application, Area Lighting and its research backbone. Another key driver will be the demand for intelligent, long-term solutions for municipalities and utilities that create opportunities for the development and testing of new, high-tech solutions for the modern city.
The total budget of the project is of approximately 17 million DKK. Innovayt contributed to the project by providing consultancy services during the developing and writing of the proposal.
