We are pleased to notice that the Kilkenny City Street Lighting case study for the Streetlight-EPC Project, of which we are regional partner, has been published on the BUILD UP portal, the European portal for energy efficiency.
Street Light EPC is an EU project aimed at promoting the use of Energy Performance Contracts or EPCs as an accessible way of refurbishing street lighting in Europe which boasts in excess of 56 million street lighting luminaires. Much of this infrastructure is old and inefficient, just as was the case with Kilkenny City street lighting recently upgraded through the project as a city partner, facilitated by regional partner CKEA. EPCs transfer some of the energy savings risk from the consumer to the supplier. A form of EPC, an Energy Performance Related Payment model which links contractor payment to energy performance, was adopted by Kilkenny County Council when upgrading the 60 to 70 year old street lighting infrastructure.
