Solar Intelligent Lighting (S.I.L.), a stand-alone solar luminaire integrating remote management system, designed by Salvi Lighting, was recently credited with the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label after an evaluation by independent external experts based on verified standards. Therefore, it joins the challenge of 1000 solutions, an initiative of the Solar Impulse Foundation to select solutions meeting high standards in profitability and sustainability and present them to decision makers as to accelerate their implementation.
Nowadays the electricity grid is easily accessible in all our cities with large infrastructures; but when we refer to roads with difficult geographical conditions or intercity roads, we find smaller or even inexistent power grid infrastructures. These types of roads are the ones suffering the most traffic accidents and this is one of the reasons for Salvi Lighting solution helps in the lighting installation and, therefore, increase the safety of the sections in a sustainable way.
Solar Intelligent Lighting (S.I.L.), as a solar LED lighting solution not only has advantages in its installation but also in the consumption and quantity of CO2 generated. It is a self-powered solar LED lighting solution; its solar panel powers a battery allowing short charge/discharge cycles, increasing its durability and efficiency.
Being able to obtain the same performance over the years, SIL solution also integrates Smartec® tele management system, a devoted system for smart cities and lighting management designed to get the status of the battery, the charge and discharge cycles and being able to create dimming profiles of different time slots for more efficient use of energy.
Salvi’s solar technology is based on the preliminary study of location, thanks to the European Commission’s PHOTOVOLTAIC GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM and the specific characteristics of each project; Salvi’s online luminaire configurator allows final user to see in a few clicks what would be the most efficient basic configuration versus the location of the project.
The Solar Impulse Foundation was born from the initiative of Bertrand Picard and Boschberg in 2016. Being the first people to go around the world on a solar-powered aircraft to demonstrate that a sustainable world is possible using clean technologies. It was a success not only in the history of aviation but mainly in the history of energy.
From there Picard & Boschberg have been dedicated to find and promote sustainable and cost-effective products and services with their initiative”1000 clean and cost-effective solutions”. The Foundation is helping business and government decision makers to achieve their environmental goals and adopt more ambitious energy policies, which are necessary to bring these solutions to market. A way to further lead the success of the first solar-powered flight around the world.,
To receive the label “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution”, Solar Intelligent Lighting (S.I.L.) was carefully evaluated by a group of independent experts according to 5 criteria covering the three main topics of Viability, Environment and Profitability. Whose criteria are based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, being the master plan for a sustainable future for all by 2030.
Solar Impulse focuses its solutions on 5 of these 17 objectives, with which it classifies and evaluates all the solutions presented to be part of its #1000 efficient solutions. Solutions that Bertrand Piccard, president of the Solar Impulse Foundation, will present to decision makers in business and government. The aim of this initiative is to promote the adoption of more ambitious environmental objectives and accelerate the implementation of these solutions on a large scale.
Salvi’s solution has been selected because it is very aligned with the “Solar Impulse” strategy. It is a huge satisfaction, Salvi declares, to have a solution among the #1000 selected to change the world. Support in its strategy of working aligned with the UN/SDP sustainable development goals and a demand to deepen this path with all our energy, to benefit the next generations.
