NEWLIGHT: a potential solution for up-scaling investments in Energy Efficiency and Renewables

PART OF PUBLENEF PROJECT

The project main objective is the modernisation of public lighting systems in 57 Croatian cities and municipalities based in Zagreb County and Krapina-Zagorje County.

Energy efficiency measures under this project are aimed at replacing luminaries by more energy-efficient technologies such as LED and installation of the power control (dimming), with the potential to achieve energy and cost savings of 60%.

The Republic of Croatia has recognized the public lighting as a key sector for achieving energy objectives of the European Union. The cost related to operation and maintenance of public lighting systems in Croatian cities and municipalities can amount up to 7% of the total local authority budget. Hoping to find a potential solution for up-scaling investments in Energy Efficiency and Renewables, REGEA proposed the NEWLIGHT Project.
