100% conversion of Streetlighting to LED through Energy Performance Contracting – Bad Schallerbach (Austria)

The original objective was to refurbish only the sections of the street lighting system that were in dire need of replacement. However, after realising the extent of the work required, the municipality decided to develop a holistic refurbishment concept for the entire street lighting system.




The Upper Austrian municipality of Bad Schallerbach is a well-known health resort. Being also committed to climate protection, the municipality continuously aims to improve its energy efficiency. Because of their aging public lighting system and the phasing out of high-pressure mercury lamps, the entire street lighting system was renovated at once, including Christmas lighting, within an EPC (energy performance contracting) project.
