  • Danish regional energy and fiber broadband provider EnergiMidt signed an agreement with Swiss technology company Paradox Engineering SA to develop innovative smart city networks and provide advanced services to the public sector and private business customers in Denmark. Acting as local representative for Paradox Engineering’s solutions in the Danish market, EnergiMidt will integrate PE.AMI in existing and future infrastructures, leveraging its system integration experience and know-how in the intelligent street lighting market.

    The two companies have already been collaborating on a pilot project for the community of Viborg, in the village of Almind, to be completed by the end of March 2016. About 50 light poles will be equipped with smart lamps and PE.AMI Lighting Management Nodes, thus connecting each light point to a wireless network and enabling remote monitoring and control. The same architecture supports the smart parking system to be deployed at the local community house, where about 40 car lots are being equipped with PE.AMI Parking Management Nodes to detect vehicle occupancy and provide drivers with real-time parking availability information. The intent of the community of Viborg is to test both smart lighting and smart parking solutions to evaluate possible extension of the same network to other smart urban services such as WiFi hot spots, solid waste management and smart metering.
