Implemented by: North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency
The NEWLIGHT Project was the first of its kind in Croatia. In the framework of art. 5 of the EED and the Strategy of Energy Development of the Republic of Croatia, REGEA started public lighting reconstruction, using environmental-friendly luminaries in order to reduce light pollution. 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%. Auxiliary operations such as reconstruction of lighting poles and replacement of power cables were also included. With these measures, REGEA expects to modernize around 34 000 lighting points, reduce energy consumption by 19 GWh and CO2 emissions by 5 000 tonnes, and develop an EPC/PPP market in Croatia and increase competitiveness of domestic ESCO providers.
