The project SOWA Piecewska consisted of refurbishing the public lighting along the street Piecewska in Gdansk (Illuminated area: 19,130 m²). Due to new investments in this district of the city and the installation of a new tram line, an upgrade of the public lighting system was needed.  The project included the replacement of the sodium lamps with LEDs and the modernisation of the infrastructure.The City of Gdańsk obtained a subsidy for this project and the Regional Fund for Environmental Protection covered 45% of the investment.

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.
