Cities with good lighting

The Palma de Mallorca City Council is undertaking an innovative project to mobilise investment in order to improve its street lighting. In issue no. 25 of FuturENERGY, in November 2015, we set out the benefits of the energy management and maintenance supervision contract being undertaken by Lot 0 for the Palma City Council. This month, via the joint venture Efibalear, the project managers for the reform of the street lighting under Lot 0, Letter Ingenieros reports on current and future results for 2015 and 2016.

This project, “Integrated management of outdoor lighting and improved energy efficiency of public infrastructures” is 50% co-funded by the ERDF 2014-2020 Operational Programme for the Balearic Islands, and is supported by the audit undertaken in 2012; by the ISO 50001 on energy efficient management; by the Palma Financial Aid Programme for Energy Sustainability and Efficiency; by the Smart Office of the Palma City Council; and by a practical web-based management platform.

Thanks to the guiding principles established and the commitment to the specified objectives, the implementing agreement is expected to be signed between the Government of the Balearic Islands and the Palma City Hall to co-finance the project on the new management model for outdoor lighting and improved energy efficiency of the public infrastructure of the Palma City Hall, as part of the ERDF 2014-2020 Operational Programme for the Balearic Islands.
