Country of operation: 

The aim of this project is to modernize the public lighting system in Serbian municipalities – including modernization of maintenance standards, energy and cost savings and environmental aspects. To assist the municipality in financing the project, a contracting model has been developed. The energy and cost-savings, guaranteed by the client and illustrated in the incremental cost analysis, are the leverage to make this project profitable. After the end of the contracting agreement concluded between the municipality and the client, the municipality can fully profit from the modernized public lighting system with all its advantages.

The public lighting project is related to several socio-economic topics: in general, regional development will be enhanced. An up-to-date public lighting system is a pre-requisite for several businesses such as service enterprises, the retail industry or tourism. Furthermore, safety on the street will increase both for car drivers and pedestrians. The installation of fittings and bulbs in historic street lightings will improve the historical appearance of the town.
