Rising populations, aging infrastructure, and climate change pose serious challenges for cities across the world. With 70 percent of cities already dealing with the effects of climate change, and a projected 68 percent of the world projected to be living in cities by 2050, smart cities and urban technologies are essential investments for a sustainable and equitable urban future.
One company that can provide smart city technology is Suncil.
Suncil is a Danish producer of solar powered street lighting and solar column solutions, which includes standalone solar powered luminaire that provides light throughout the night, regardless of the previous days’ weather conditions. Their innovative lighting technology, aesthetically pleasing product design and their aim for the best possible solutions – for both their customers and for their planet, has made Suncil a growing leader in delivering sustainable solar powered street lighting.
Suncil has recently been acquired by MAKEEN Energy, and this has created an increase in production capacity and reduced distribution time. Due to this acquisition, Suncil is now seeking new business opportunities in the US.
To gain a better understanding of the American market, Suncil has reached out to Danish Cleantech Hub, the American lead in the Access Cities project, to seek consultancy on possible company growth and market expansion strategy.
Due to Suncil’s product, the analytical scope will be focused on the “sunshine” states California, Nevada and Florida. Here, Danish Cleantech Hub will provide an overview of which approvals and jurisdictions the products must fulfil within the different states.
