ENIGMA project launches market consultation on smart public lighting

Suppliers specialising in ICT, lighting architecture and engineering are asked to contribute to a pre-commercial procurement (PCP) market consultation process investigating options for smart public lighting in European cities. Details of the consultation were published in a prior information notice (PIN) released by the ENIGMA project in late March. The PIN precedes a formal procurement process on the part of ENGIMA’s five partner cities Eindhoven (Netherlands), Malmö (Sweden), Stavanger (Norway), Espoo (Finland) and Bassana del Grappa (Italy).

The partner cities want to upgrade their public lighting infrastructure using ICT solutions to encourage more integrated, smarter cities which work for the benefit of individual citizens and broader society. Through the PCP, they are looking for smart lighting systems that can be easily integrated into different architectures and systems, now and in the future.

All interested parties active in the sectors of lighting, ICT, architecture and engineering are invited to participate in this market consultation to help gauge what is currently available on the market. Suppliers are asked to email a completed Response Form to by 1 May 2014. A series of market workshops across Europe in late April will facilitate further exchange of information between the ENIGMA partner cities and the supply chain, and enable the development of a procurement strategy and specifications.
