Billion Electric, Taiwanese provider of network equipment and power supply products, is seeking to partner with companies to aid its expansion into the smart lighting and smart energy markets in Southeast Asia.
Using its Intelligent Street Light Control and Management System (LCMS) and indoor & outdoor LED drivers, Billion Electric aims to help municipalities boost street light efficiencies and cities’ safety while at the same time, reduce energy consumption.
The company, whose primary market is Asia-Pacific, has now shifted its focus to Southeast Asia, looking to bring intelligent lighting solutions to Indonesia, Singapore, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
Billion claims that its LCMS is able to perform ‘sunrise and sunset calculations, features immediate street light outage alarms to IP camera integrations, brighten the driving sightsee and minimize labour with the improved LED lights and security’.
Labour and cost savings
It added that remote monitoring of street lights can save municipalities time and maintenance by setting preferred dimming schedules and switching lighting on or off on a cloud-based server.
The Taipei-based company is also looking to promote ‘BEsmart Solar Energy Cloud’ to support renewable energy adoption. Through its BEsmart Energy Cloud software, Billion integrates smart meters and Internet gateways with a cloud-computing platform, bringing the Internet of Things (IoT) to create a well-connected energy management system.
The solution allows users to identify places for system efficiency improvement by aggregating up-to-date insights into the electricity that supports their daily operations.
“LCSM has grown to a mature stage, and has been successfully deployed by numerous lighting pioneers in Taiwan, mainland China, and Europe”, said Martin Chang, the Product Line Manager of Intelligent Street Light Control and Management at Billion Electric Co. Ltd.
“We are targeting Southeast Asia as we see a thriving potential in renewable energy, smart streetlights, and LED lighting. We already have moved towards that direction by working with partners in Malaysia and Thailand.
“Currently, we are looking for cooperation through the whole Southeastern Asia, especially in Indonesia, Singapore, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and [the] Philippine[s].”
