Build the Thriving City
HOW CAN INTELLIGENT INFRASTRUCTURE HELP A CITY GROW?
A healthy city is like a healthy body: a complex system of moving parts that need to work together. Current’s smart energy and data solutions enable that system to not only function, but flourish. That's how the cities of tomorrow can transform the ways people live, work and play today.
Life on easy street
Little things make a big difference in peoples’ everyday lives. Like public Wi-Fi on every street corner. Convenient electric vehicle charging stations with built-in solar panels. Mobile apps that instantly find the next bus or nearest parking spot. We connect cities with the digital infrastructure that makes better living a reality.
30% of the cars circling a city are searching for a parking spot
A smarter system
How do we bring this
infrastructure to life, so that it works for the city as well as its citizens? We
install low-impact LED streetlights throughout the municipal grid to help cities improve
energy efficiency—and can also equip them with sensors that see, hear and feel the
environment around them.
The data our streetlights collect can be used to keep the city running smoothly, from easing traffic congestion to plowing snow faster. And as the city’s needs evolve, the lights can be easily updated with new intelligent devices.

Planning for tomorrow
produce massive amounts of data, and our cloud-based Predix platform can handle the
load. Our data is open, which means Predix can operate with any system your city uses.
That helps municipal departments share data on a citywide scale, so they can work
together to better respond to issues.
Use our data to plan for the future, whether that means revitalizing neighborhoods or attracting tech investors. Together, we can make your city a vibrant place that new residents and businesses alike call home.
60% of the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2050
How we make it happen
Gain energy independence by generating lower-cost, renewable solar energy for your city.
LED streetlights provide lower-cost, environmentally friendly lighting for pedestrians—and can be integrated with an array of intelligent hardware.
EV charging stations offer convenience for city dwellers and commuters who need to power up their cars around town.
Streetlight fixtures can be equipped with energy load controls, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities, security cameras, sensors that monitor motion, sound and atmospheric changes and more.
POWERED BY Predix™
Predix is GE’s cloud-based platform that collects and stores data to help you intelligently analyze and optimize your city’s performance.
ENHANCED BY PARTNERSHIPS
We partner with vendors and developers on software applications that use our data for everything from real-time transit trackers to public safety alerts.
San Diego is switching on the potential of our streetlights in ways that seemed improbable just a few years ago because of Current’s Intelligent Cities technology.
