Improving the energy efficiency of public lighting
According to Ademe, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency, public lighting accounts for 41% of the electricity consumed by local governments. But it is also a true source of savings. Citeos (VINCI Energies) helps over 3,000 municipalities improve their energy performance. For example, in Cergy-Pontoise, just outside Paris, it has committed to reducing the city’s energy consumption by 47% over 18 years, by renovating 80% of the existing lighting equipment and installing 7,000 LED lights, which are more energy-efficient. Citeos helped the city of Canberra in Australia cut its energy consumption by about 45%.
RENEWING TUNNEL LIGHTING
In Greece, where VINCI Highways holds the concession for the Athens-Patras motorway (201 km), a new LED lighting system was installed in the tunnels, reducing CO2 emissions for tunnel operations by 60%. Similar iniatiatives have been launched across the Group’s motorway networks in France and other countries.
