2 Echelon Overview 20 years of innovation Founded in 1998 by Mike Markkula from AppleCEO - Ken Oshman from ROLMPublicly traded on the NASDAQ under ELON300 Employees, $134MSan Jose, CA; offices worldwideEnabling the Smart GridSmart meteringBuilding controlsStreet and area lightingHome controlRetail & convenience store automationTransportationStandards based – LonWorks® Control NetworksISO, IP, IP-852, ANSI
3 Echelon’s Smart Grid Vision What is the Smart Grid. Internet for the Electric Grid. Current grid is dumb. Sends electricity, cannot communicate. Your meter is read manually or by a one way system once a month. You get one number and don’t know what device is costing you what. Refrigerator example. Grid give two way intelligence to every device connected to it. Enable you to know that your 10 year old refrigerator is costing you $700 a month and could be replaces and cost you $50. Renewable example. Lots of devices attached to the grid. Homes though meters, or home area networks, generation plans, distributied generation. Today I will be talking about Street lighting.Provides a great opportunitiy for the valley. $200 billion to build it out.
4 Street and Area Lighting Market 60 million poles in the US200 million worldwideEarly adopter market in US, Europe a couple years aheadUp to 40% of a municipality’s energy budgetCurrently unmeteredCharged on a flat rate per lightStrong interest in energy efficient technologyLEDControls
5 Intelligent Street Light Market Drivers Liability, Security and SafetyCost & quality of maintenanceEnergy ConsumptionCO² emissions
6 Smart Lighting Features Dimming/Demand ResponseIncrements of 1%Individual luminaire controlAutomatic failure identification and Daylight Burner IdentificationData collectionConsumed energyLamp burning hoursVoltage, Current, Temperature911 Alerts
8 The Streetlight Network Expansion CapabilityThe Streetlight Networkto support the monitoring of the City
9 Benefits Environmental Dramatic reductions in energy use Reduced CO2 emissionsReduced light pollutionBeautificationCost & quality of maintenanceIndividual luminaire monitoringOutage detectionEarly failure monitoringLiability, security and safetyReal-time status reporting and monitoring911 serviceHistorical performance data
10 Benefit Not limited to single luminaire choice Compatible with future technologyPhased approach as existing technology rides the cost curveHPS, LED, Induction, Metal HalideSingle, multi-purpose city networkEasily add future sensing devicesTraffic, environmental, others…Independent of wide-area network choicesImplement new services without changing the infrastructureElectric vehicle chargers
