Aiming to achieve a more modern, agile, sustainable and efficient management of public resources and services, the Castellón Provincial Council has promoted, through Innovative Public Procurement (IPP) mechanisms, the Smart Villages initiative, a smart, standardized, transversal and open technological platform, available to the 135 municipalities of Castellón. The platform offers the ability to centrally monitor and manage an expandable set of municipal services.
Among these services is public lighting. The Castellón Provincial Council has underlined the importance of using specific tools for remote management as way to achieve energy savings, and has relied on Wellness TechGroup for the Public Lighting module, which allows the monitoring of certain electrical variables (intensity, voltage, active and reactive power) in the municipalities entrusted to the public lighting management service.
The objective of Smart Public Lighting services is to achieve a more efficient management of energy while improving the lighting of the municipality.
