Public lighting and Smart City
Digitization of the processes’ management of urban infrastructures. The PELL-IP project
Despite the technological development today offers the necessary tools to be able to arrange and manage in a structured and monitored the strategic data of the infrastructures that animate our cities, their application still faces many difficulties on the part of public administrations. Having and allowing the controlled circulation of such data brings benefits not only to the public administration, but also to the market and citizens.
In this perspective, ENEA launched the Public Energy Living Lab (PELL) project, with the aim of outlining and promoting the application of a management model, now a national protocol, for the acquisition, transmission, processing and monitoring of strategic data of public infrastructure, conforming to the implementation rules of the INSPIRE Directive. The aim is to create an infrastructure for spatial information at both national and European level, so as to stimulate the development and efficiency of public services. In this context, the involvement of the Agency for Digital Italy, which outlined the PELL data model, is in line with the objectives of access, sharing and interoperability of data and geographical information systems.
In a first phase, PELL has found its own application in the field of public lighting (PELL IP), as it has been identified as a highly strategic infrastructure in the development of urban and territorial contexts in a smart key.
The convention organized by ENEA in collaboration with CRIET, AgID and JRC therefore intends to present and promote the process developed within the PELL-IP Project, as a model of smart city management and opportunities for infrastructure optimization and urban innovation.
