US-based Boeing Company and Danish firm Amplex have partnered to offer an intelligent streetlight management system for major US cities that could cut energy consumption by 25%-35% and reduce emissions.

Under the deal, Amplex will supply its AmpLight solution, which includes central control, monitoring, an energy savings mode, remote and power quality metering, voltage stabilisation and wireless communications/IT solutions.

Boeing Energy Solutions will provide services such as sales, contracting, programme management, implementation, service and support.

Streetlights are responsible for up to 40% of a municipality’s electricity budget and consume between 2%-4% of the total electricity produced in the US, said Amplex.

According to the company, the adoption of AmpLight system by the ten largest metropolitan areas in the US can also cut greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 600,000 metric tons, which is equivalent to taking 200,000 cars off the road annually.

The partnership was announced at the ongoing Bright Green Conference and Exhibition in Copenhagen.
