Demonstration Shows How Cities and Businesses Can Decrease Energy, Management, and Maintenance Costs for Streetlights and Lighting in Large Commercial Facilities Using Smart Control Networking

(San Jose, CA - May 4, 2009) - At the LIGHTFAIR International Tradeshow and Conference Echelon (NASDAQ: ELON) will display how its smart control networking technology can be used for both street lighting and hi-bay lighting systems. Echelon’s control technology is lamp independent, potentially bringing the benefits of decreased energy use, lower operating costs, remote monitoring and control, and improved service to the diverse outdoor and indoor lighting markets.

For smart streetlights, Echelon’s technology can be used to lower a city’s lighting related energy use - even when using highly energy efficient LED lamps. From Anchorage to Oslo, to Ville de Quebec and now to San Francisco and San Jose, CA, cities are looking for ways to make themselves more environmentally conscious and energy efficient. Since streetlights are often up to 40% of a city’s total electric bill, they are a high priority in terms of using the latest technology for environmental and economic savings. Smart control networking builds on the efficiency of new lamps – potentially lowering costs and improving service through such capabilities as early detection of failing streetlights, outage detection, light output balancing, and dimming - all while providing safer and more beautiful city streets, roads and highways.

For hi-bay indoor lighting systems, Echelon’s smart control technology can allow them to participate in demand response programs by giving owners and managers the ability to individually dim and monitor the powerful lights in warehouses, big-box retailers, airport hangers, and other large buildings. Doing so can dramatically lower energy use and costs – especially important in times of high demand on the grid. The benefits of controls in hi-bay lighting systems goes beyond energy to include adaptive lighting controls, real-time light output to provide optimal lighting conditions at all times, remote control & monitoring of individual lamps, and integration with existing building control systems.
