Launched in 2006 by the European Commission, EUSEW (EU Sustainable Energy Week) was organized by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) until March 31, 2021, from April 1 this year it is organized by the Agency. European Executive for Climate, Infrastructure and the Environment (CINEA), in close collaboration with the European Directorate-General for Energy.
The idea of the European Community, in fact, is to see awarded the project that is more in line with the concept of sustainable energy and with the pursuit of the climate and energy objectives for 2030. An initiative that sees various stakeholders confront each other, evaluating and proposing projects that contribute to environmental sustainability.
Each year, during the EU Sustainable Energy Week, the award ceremony for the projects that have most distinguished themselves in terms of environmental sustainability is held in Brussels; on 25 October this year, the LIFE-Diademe Project won the EUSEW award in the Innovation category.
In particular, the DIADEME project introduces a new concept of adaptive lighting, namely the DAI: Distributed Adaptive Installation. A new type of luminous flux regulation that allows, thanks to low cost sensors and machine learning and AI algorithms, to correlate the data of the sensors installed in secondary roads with those of the LTM sensor (FAI Adaptive Lighting). By doing so, it is possible to make available for each street a specific dimming data that can be implemented according to the UNI11248 FAI standard, with a truly negligible cost.
It should also be emphasized that in the national context it is the first time that a project of the LIFE program of the European Community reaches the final and is awarded by winning in the Innovation category.
