HEP ESCO, subsidiary of Croatian state power utility Hrvatska Elektroprivreda (HEP), has started a public lighting reconstruction project in the city of Osijek, during which 11,086 LED lights will be installed.

The new ESCO/EPC model will enable an annual decrease in electricity consumption for public lighting by 7.5 million kWh and the investment of HRK 30.8 million (around EUR 4.08 million) will pay off within eight years, HEP ESCO said.

The modernization works will contribute to the protection of the environment by reducing CO2 emissions and light pollution in line with the relevant directive in the European Union, according to the press release. The rule’s transposition into the national law on the protection from light pollution, which came into force on April 1, 2019, obligated all local municipalities in Croatia to harmonize the existing lighting systems with it in 12 years at the latest.

The contractors are installing a system for the monitoring, management, measurement and verification of savings and remote control.
