Introduction of LED outdoor lighting in Biaroza District including an automation and control system
About of project:
Budget: €775,044; EU contribution: €620,000
Implementing agency: Biaroza District Executive Committee, Biaroza Utilities Company
Location: Biaroza, Brest Region, Republic of Belarus
DescriptionThe Biaroza outdoor lighting offers significant opportunities for reducing energy consumption. The presently used outdated gas-discharge lamps used consume a great deal of electricity, which has a high impact on the public funds expenditure.
Goals and objectives: The project is mainly aimed at expediting the implementation of the plan of action on the Biaroza District energy development in terms of CO2 reduction by 20% by the year 2020, which was adopted by the Biaroza District Council in conformity with the Covenant of Mayors Initiative.
Interim outcomes: An outdoor lighting energy audit contest was held, which outcomes underlay the development of design and estimate documents for completing the project.
According to the plans, the outdated lamps will be replaced with energy-efficient LED lamps in the second half of 2019.
The use of LED lamps and introduction of an urban lighting automation system will reduce energy consumption by 982.8 MWh, thus cutting the local budget expenditure by BYR 235,000 a year, also reducing CO2 emissions by 801.96 tons compared to 2010.
The outdoor lamp replacement will help improve the quality of the town street lighting, as LED lamps have a higher energy-to-light conversion ratio and a better colour rendering index as compared with gas-discharge ones.
The town street lighting improvements will help lower the risk of road accidents.
