Billion Electric, the largest provider of lighting control and power technologies in the Asia-Pacific rim, is in search of partners to enter the smart lighting and smart energy markets in Southeast Asia.
Billion wants to promote its Intelligent Street Light Control and Management System (LCMS) and indoor & outdoor LED drivers by working with system integrators to join tendering projects. Billion also targets this region to launch BEsmart Energy Cloud to align with regional sustainability movements. Southeast Asia is now the primary market focus where the company wants to invest in long-term business co-operations.
Billion, established in 1973, began its initial business in the manufacturing, design, and the distribution of power supplies, LED drivers, and lighting control solutions. Billion’s brand was officially launched in 2004, and since 2009, the company has added considerable resources to empower the base of R&D teams and build laboratories to develop Smart Grid and energy related products. Billion closed its fiscal year 2014 with revenue of $38 million USD and is currently equipped with over 900 specialists.
Billion plans to introduce LCMS to help municipalities boost street light efficiencies and city’s safety while concurrently reducing energy consumption. Through the remote monitoring of street light performances, municipalities can save time and maintenance by setting preferred dimming schedules and switching lighting on or off on a cloud-based server. From sunrise and sunset calculations, immediate street light outage alarms to IP camera integrations, Billion’s LCMS not only can brighten the driving sightsee, but also minimize labor with the improved LED lights and security.
Billion is also looking to promote BEsmart Energy Cloud to support the renewable energy movement. Billion integrates smart meters and Internet gateways with a cloud-computing platform, bringing IoT (Internet of Things) to build a well-connected energy management system.
The solution allows users to detect places for system efficiency improvement by grasping up-todate insights into the electricity that supports their daily operations. Combining metering devices with networking technologies, BEsmart Energy Cloud can bring visibility to energy consumptions and reduce utility costs by auditing every electrical activity.
“LCSM has grown to a mature stage, and has been successfully deployed by numerous lighting pioneers in Taiwan, China, and Europe”, says Martin Chang, the Product Line Manager of Intelligent Street Light Control and Management at Billion Electric Co. Ltd.
“We are targeting Southeast Asia as we see a thriving potential in renewable energy, smart streetlights, and LED lighting.”
“We already have moved towards that direction by working with partners in Malaysia and Thailand. Currently, we are looking for cooperation through the whole Southeastern Asia, especially in Indonesia, Singapore, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Philippine” – concludes Martin Chang.
