The project SOWA Nieborowska consisted of the refurbishment of the public lighting along the street Nieborowska in Gdansk (Illuminated area: 20,437 m²). The project was triggered by the willingness to improve safety and security by upgrading the street lighting. Initially it was planned to exchange the lighting to sodium lamps with lower capacity. However, this solution was replaced with LED lamps due to innovation and higher energy savings of LED technology.

The street lighting project was originally planned in the municipality of Berg. After Berg and the neighbouring municipality of Rohrbach were amalgamated, the renovation project covered the whole street lighting of the former municipality of Berg and a part of Rohrbach. As a result, more lighting points were renovated than initially planned and agreed upon by the municipality and ESCO (139 instead of 121). The municipality’s main aim was to save electricity and use more efficient lighting technology.

With a population slightly below 1,000 inhabitants, the municipality of Cabanillas decided to evaluate an energy efficiency project with its streetlighting. The main objective was the improvement of the physical state and energy efficiency of the streetlight system as well as maintaining or increasing the quality of the service. The municipality was interested in conducting this project with an EPC and an open public tender was published for ESCOs to submit their offers.

The street lighting infrastructure in Kilkenny County was established during the past 60-70 years. The area selected for this project was a representative sample of the 9,800 lamps throughout the county. Street lighting represents approximately 55% of the municipality’s electricity consumption. The light quality was variable and unsatisfactory. The cost of the upgrades was traditionally the barrier to change.

The street lighting system of the municipality of Antiesenhofen was quite old (partly from the 60s) and represented a large percentage of the municipality's electricity consumption. The main objective of the project was to improve the physical state and energy efficiency of the street lighting system without compromising service quality. The municipality was interested in using an EPC (energy performance contracting) model for this project, 4 ESCOs were asked to submit an offer. The municipality wanted to limit the amount of digging and excavation work done during the project.
