This Theoretical Challenge requires only a written proposal.


Enel would like to optimize the costs of construction, operation and maintenance of the street public lighting (intended as a complex system consisting of an electrical panel and its components, i.e. lines, supports, arms and lighting bodies). For this particular Challenge, the Solver should focus on technologies/best practices that can reduce maintenance costs or man-hours of maintenance activities.

Submissions will include a technical description of the technology/best practice and evidence of its ability to lower cost and/or man-hours on the maintenance of public Lighting Systems.

Submissions to this Challenge must be received by 11:59 PM (Central European Time) on September 20, 2019.
