Car park lighting, Copenhagen, Denmark

“Scotia are proving that excellent design can be combined with environmentally friendly technology. The poles produce more energy than required for lighting and therefore fit perfectly into the concept of a no CO2 emission infrastructure.”

Seven years of continuous high yield with no cleaning.

The first seven Scotia WP4 Masts were installed in 2009 in the car park of the Bella Centre Conference Facility in Copenhagen.

They were commissioned by the Danish Government and the United Nations as examples of future zero-emission street lighting - for the occasion of the COP 15 Conference on Climate Change which was held there in December of that year.

The masts have now been in continuous operation since then – they are entering their eighth year- and have throughout that time produced consistently 5% above their initially predicted yield, with no fall-off. This record has been achieved with minimal maintenance and no cleaning in all that time.

Each of these Scotia masts has been generating 240 kwh per year, which means that this small but significant installation of just seven masts has already saved nearly 7 tons of CO2 in its short lifetime.
