SCHREDER - Sustainability Report 2023


Clear Energy Savings as London’s Haringey Goes Smart Situated just north of Central London, the Borough of Haringey provides services, including street lighting, to 270,000 residents. Over the last decade, Haringey has switched to LED lighting and has benefited from energy and financial savings. In 2021, the Council set out a roadmap to reach net zero carbon by 2027, the Haringey Climate Change Action Plan. As part of this, they decided to implement a smart lighting platform to control their street lights and chose Schréder EXEDRA. With nearly 20,000 luminaires and street signs from different manufacturers, they needed a system that was truly interoperable. The challenge was to create paths for communication, data sharing and enriched visibility from multiple connected endpoints that could support Haringey’s immediate and longer-term smart city objectives. Using TALQ’s open protocol, we established true interoperability between Schréder and third-party controllers and assets across the borough. The initial benefit of the new technology is that the lighting is now responsive and adaptive, providing the right light in the right place at the right time for the user and the task being carried out. For instance, if local football legends Tottenham Hotspur are playing at home, the lighting can be increased to full output to help visitors and residents get home safely. Schréder EXEDRA has also provided comprehensive and valuable insights and supported integration with third-party maintenance and energy reporting software. This has been key to Haringey’s impressive 69% reduction in carbon emissions, playing a huge part in getting London to net zero. Residents are happy, and streets are well-lit. The roll-out of a Central Management System (CMS) for the Haringey Council’s street lighting has won both a GOLD and GREEN Build Back Better Award in the 2023 Lighting category. The Build Back Better Awards celebrates and rewards innovation, creativity, sustainability and social purpose in the built environment.
