Next Step Challenge award in Energy Efficient Systems

Amplex just won the finals of Scale-Up Denmark/Next Step Challenge 2019 in the category Energy Efficient Systems for our streetlight management system. We are very proud as the initial selection process was based on 3,254 companies. From which we were selected and entered the finals along with 99 others. We ended up as #1 in our category. Meaning we were evaluated as the most scalable company within the Energy Efficient Systems category.

Two months later we won the national Scale-Up Denmark audience award for the best presentation.

We are very proud to receive these two prestigious awards. Scale-Up Denmark and Next Step Challenge awards are sponsored by the European Development Fund.

Assisted Living project in Manchester – Evaluation Report

This project for assisted living in Manchester, United Kingdom was using Amplex CheckMarks™ with a number of tenants (primarily over 75 years of age) who were living independently and alone but with a dependency on an unpaid carer – normally a family member or close friend (the ‘Nominated Person’ or NP).

This report was conducted by the distinguished British institution Centre of Excellence for Technology Enhanced Care (CETEC) at Barnet Southgate College as an evaluation of a two-year evaluation project.

A proactive engagement approach (regular phone calls / contact with participating NPs) was followed until June 2018. A change to a more hands-off (responsive only) approach was then followed to assess longer-term sustainability.

The battle is on: Light sensor vs. Twilight Calculations

There is an ongoing discussion whether to use light sensors or astronomically calculated set points. Which is safest, and where do we get the best savings?

Amplex has made a study in 9 cities in Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Luxembourg, and found that using a light sensor saves up to 22% compared to astronomically calculated set points. Energy savings will actually be even larger, as the energy is unevenly consumed through the night. At sunset and at sunrise, the light is usually fully on, while during the night many lights are dimmed. When optimising the on/off time of the streetlights, the optimisation will happen when the lights are fully on, thereby providing an even larger saving.
