dc.description.abstractNowadays, being a smart city is becoming more important. It is because of increasing energy use and the costs that come with it, that people all over the world are looking for better methods to decrease the environmental effects and costs. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to find out if there is a better way to use the streetlights in Vilanova i la Geltrú in order to go forward in the direction of being a smart city. Vilanova i la Geltrú currently has 10.800 Streetlights, and the energy consumption for these street lights cost a huge amount of money each year. This number can be decreased by finding new ways. This will be done, by further developing a street light called the ‘Urban Node’. This further development will be based on a previous research done. This Urban Node will be a replacement of the current street light. It includes components like led lights, solar panel and a wind turbine. It generates energy by using wind turbines and a solar panel instead of the current regular street light. In this research a certain methodology has been used, which includes expert interviews, an observation and desk research. As a result of using these methods, there has been made a simulation of a renewed streetlight system mostly revolving around the new product adding to the current system, which is the Urban Node. Concluding the results it has been found that implementing the Urban Node is more cost and energy efficient than the current street light system that has been used within Vilanova i la Geltrù. Furthermore, in this report there will be explained what the Urban Node exactly is, how it is structured, where it should be implemented, how it should be implemented and how it is more cost and energy efficient than the current system.
