Telensa provides smart streetlight solutions helping cities, utilities and local government organisations across the world to reduce their energy consumption and carbon emissions.  In the UK, Telensa’s solutions are used by 40 UK local authorities and operate on 1m of the UK’s 7m street lights. These authorities now have the capabilities to manage their lights in the most optimal way, implementing policies that reduce electricity consumption significantly. We can see, therefore, the important role that Telensa has played in helping the UK’s streetlighting industry reach its world leading position.
Extending beyond the 1m street light controllers in the UK, Telensa has deployed a further 1m across more than 50 projects around the world, including in New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, the UAE, Europe (Poland, Greece, Czech Republic, Denmark, Slovakia) USA, Canada, Malaysia and Brazil. Recently acquired by global lighting company Signify, Telensa now has a platform for even more widespread adoption.
Telensa’s PLANet® connected street lighting system consists of wireless control nodes (telecells), a dedicated wireless network (city- or utility-owned) and a Central Management System (CMS). As street lighting owners and operators around the world make the transition from legacy sodium lighting to LED, PLANet adds value by providing tools for helping to optimise the energy and maintenance improvements that come with LED street lighting. Whole populations of street lights can be managed entirely from the desktop.
Recently, the company has been awarded a new contract by its long-standing customer, Essex Highways, to replace and upgrade the smart street lighting controls on 82,000 residential streetlights across the county. An early adopter of Telensa’s wireless streetlight controls, Essex County Council chose Telensa smart controls over ten years ago to reduce their streetlight energy consumption and make it easier and more efficient to manage, maintain and operate their streetlight estate. Telensa also provides smart lighting as area lighting solutions in campus and estate-type deployments including for airports, retail parks, exhibition hall estates and container ports.
Telensa’s solution helps cities as they strive for greener, more liveable, safer and appropriately lit neighbourhoods for all. Smart streetlight deployment adheres to an inclusive approach to social deprivation as well as enabling both developed and developing countries to upgrade to cleaner technologies and thereby make meaningful contributions to tackling climate change.
