1 Sensus Lighting Control
A Smart Grid Solution for Energy Efficiency and Demand Response National Town Meeting on Demand Response + Smart Grid July 11, 2013 Charlie Nobles – Marketing Manager, Lighting Solutions

2 Sensus - Our Global Vision
The leading provider of innovative technology solutions that enable intelligent use and conservation of critical water and energy resources

3 What We Offer Demand Response Smart Outdoor Lighting
Smart Grid Communications Networks Smart Meters Advanced Metrology Distribution Automation Demand Response Home Area Networks Smart Outdoor Lighting Managed Services Software Peak shaving, event-based load control Traditionally, DR controls certain loads (HVAC, hot water heaters, pool pumps) to reduce PEAKs or in response to circuit events. LED lighting (smart or passive) reduces OVERALL consumption in Lighting. Energy efficiency and DR

4 The Intersection of DR and Controlled Streetlighting
Up to 40% of a city’s energy load can be attributed to streetlights Streetlights comprise 6% of NYC DOT energy usage Aggregated Load Ability to dispatch Overlap with Load Demand Times Winter peaking locales can see 30 to 60 minutes of early morning overlap Distribution system based events can have 100% overlap in evenings Networked lights have programmed on/off and dimming control User interface supports ‘brown-out’ functions AMI networks can provide both traditional DR control and networked streetlighting control

5 The Street Lighting Market
Aggregated Load Ability to dispatch Overlap with Load Demand Times 45M low efficiency street lights in the US to be replaced Only 3.6% of these have been replaced with ‘passive’ LED lights <1% of existing street lights have any Controls Many owned/serviced by utilities and billed on flat rate tariffs Over 14M low efficiency parking lot lights

6 The Street Lighting Market Tension
Old Tariff structures Tension between Utilities and municipalities Dropping costs of LED technologies Move toward “passive” LED All Networked Lighting systems are single application network offerings Who Owns the streetlights?

7 Overlap of Lighting and Load
Enter Class/Module Title here Overlap of Lighting and Load Aggregated Load Ability to dispatch Overlap with Load Demand Times Sunrise 7:51 am Typical PE on/off times Sunset 4:44 pm Twilight 7:17 am 8:15 am 4:25 pm Twilight 5:18 pm Programmed ramp up Lights ON Programmed ramp down Lights ON Portland, Oregon on January 8, 2013 Typical Load Curve for Dual Peaking Utilities Actual twilight and sunrise/sunset times for Portland, Oregon on Jan 8, 2013 Source: “What a Clean Energy Future Looks Like – An Absolute Nightmare”, PA Pundits International March 2011

8 Networked Street Lighting as a DR application
The Climate Group, June 2012 Issue: Who Controls the Streetlights? How can the Streetlights be Dispatched?

9 “Smart Grid” or “Smarter City”?
Aggregated Load Ability to dispatch Overlap with Load Demand Times Demand Response applications typically reside in Smart Grid AMI Solutions Streetlighting Control applications are typically in special purpose networks Smart Services Platform Traditional Demand Response Networked LED Outdoor Lighting E/W/G AMI Networks Distribution Automation Integration with City Services

10 FlexNet Solutions Platform

11 Sensus Lighting Control - Overview
Replace inefficient HPS, Metal Halide, or Mercury lamp technology with new FlexNet enabled LED fixtures. Simple field replacement on existing pole arm for street, roadway, and area lighting. Integrated Smart Grid Services Platform Outage detection and alarm notification Remote turn-on / turn-off / scheduling over FlexNet network On-board ANSI C12.20 metrology for accurate energy measurement CREE XSP lighting fixture GGL Acorn decorative lighting fixture CREE LEDway lighting fixture SLC Remote Control Based on Needs Utilization of sunrise / sunset tables for turn-on and turn-off Reduce energy consumption via programmable dimming control Demand based delay can help prevent brownouts during peak intervals Custom groupings of lights can quickly and easily be selected and programmed for emergencies and events, e. g., light enhancement and flashing for increased security Hosted application in the ‘Cloud’ GIS mapping and light asset tracking Multi-tenant application interface

12 SLC – Customer Response
Deployment underway for replacement of 27,000 street lightings by Fall Noted improvement in public park safety and reduction of crime during the Pilot Estimated annual savings of $2.7M on total annual cost of street light program – Chattanooga Office of Sustainability Features for Brownout and Peak Demand offsetting University of Alabama field trial and commitment to replace campus lights over 2 years Key driver of cost savings coupled with campus safety and lighting control as part of the school safety response program 200+ smart electric meters provisioned as well

13 Summary With Energy Efficient LED street lighting, with Control, you have the promise of a clear energy efficiency program that has scale, is aggregated, can be dispatched remotely, and can be integrated with other Smart Energy applications on One Network. Energy Efficiency and Dispatched Load Control Thank You!
