In this blog post we will tell you little bit more about our project in Belgrade, Serbia where we installed our Smart Solar Street Lights and Solar Benches. Serbia is a country in southeast Europe, with little over 7 mil. inhabitants and 4-saeson climate. One of the poorest in Europe by GDP per capita. Belgrade is its capital with annual irradiation of cc 1.200 Kw/h1 with details shown in SolarGIS2 map here. In Europe, there are these markets where people often shop fruits a
What is Microgrid? A microgrid is a local energy grid with control capability, which means it can disconnect from the traditional grid and operate autonomously. How does it work? A microgrid generally operates while connected to the grid, but importantly, it can break off and operate on its own using local energy generation in times of crisis like storms or power outages, or for other reasons.

detected and prevented but also because traffic accidents decrease. Commercial prosperity
occurs as a consequence of higher productivity and extension of marketplace hours.
Socialization will also increase
The Smart Solar Benches are becoming an increasingly growing urban furniture device that will transform urban cities and completely replace traditional benches. The Smart Solar Bench also presents a new addition to IOT and Smart City Concept. Many cities across the globe are looking for new urban solutions that will help them to make their communities"smarter" and more people friendly. By doing so they also want to make their cities more energy resilient and to deploy technol
