For this reason CityTouchLED, the control system for urban lighting designed by Philips, has been included in the guide Sustainia100 of Rio + 20, the list of the most innovative sustainable solutions to be taken as a standard according to the indications of the recent world conference on the environment.

CityTouch has already been successfully adopted in Municipality of Sulbiate, in the context of Green High Tech Monza and Brianza District, which has chosen as an energy and system partner Edison and as a technology partner Philips. Through the integrated platform CityTouch, based on cloud computing, the Municipality of Sulbiate began to illuminate a parking area with an adjoining cycle path close to an important provincial road. With benefits for the safety of citizens.

CityTouch allows you to manage the lighting levels of each individual light point, allowing automatic adjustment based on the programming set for time slots: this allows you to monitor the operation of the light points in real time in order to be able to promptly know the energy consumption and notification of any malfunctions of the lighting bodies.

"Given that over half of the global population currently lives in city centers, a figure that is projected to rise to 70% by 2025, it is easy to understand how cities and towns will increasingly need lighting," he said. Marc de Jong, CEO of Philips Professional Lighting Solutions. “The LED system CityTouch, created on the basis of public-private cooperation and partnerships, generates energy savings and improves the quality of life in urban centers, making them safer and more beautiful places to live and work ”.
