A smart, innovative platform in the famous fashion district in Milan turns the power grid and the broadband network into a Internet-controlled lighting LED system which guarantees high energy efficiency, offers Wi-Fi connections, plug-in stations and much more. if the project was extended to the whole city of Milan, € 9 million and 18 tons of CO2 would be saved.
Imagining different uses of the resources we already have is the first step towards innovations that bring benefits to the whole community. what is important is to have an attitude that is constantly looking for more and more effective solutions, and the experimentation that starts from a world-renowend street and that then becomes the norm. Until the next innovation.
