Zero-emission street lighting
Danish-based Scotia designs and supplies solar streetlight systems that generate renewable energy and helps cities achieve the environmental goal of zero-emission street lighting.
Scotia’s products include the SunMast, Europe’s first grid-connected, solar-powered street light designed to generate more power than it uses. It collects energy and feeds it back into the grid, enabling clients to earn money and reduce carbon emissions, while lighting streets and highways.
The SunMast was first installed on the site of the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Conference to demonstrate the feasibility of zero-emission street lighting. Scotia has subsidiaries in the uk and Italy and is also represented in Spain and Germany.
Sapa in Denmark has played an important role in developing the SunMast. “We have experienced that the complete sapa organisation contributed widely in all fields, as logistics, construction and of course manufacturing expertise. The strong teamwork with sapa has ensured that today we are unique with the only fully ce certified solar street-light in the market,” says Heine Olsen, business development director at Scotia.
