PPC Advanced Energy Services Romania (part of PPC Group, previously called Enel X Romania) carried out in 2023 through its e-City division, 40 street, pedestrian, and interior lighting projects with LED technology for city halls and public institutions in 19 counties in the country, including Bucharest. Through these, institutional customers ensure, on average, reductions in energy consumption between 60% and 70%, depending on the functionalities chosen.
In total, more than 19,000 energy-efficient LED lamps were supplied and installed in these projects, most of them for street lighting, followed by those for pedestrian route lighting projects.
Over 90% of PPC Advanced Energy Services Romania projects in 2023 also include a remote-control component (tele management system) – it can take control of the public lighting network, remotely adjust the parameters of the smart street lighting system such as intensity and generate reports on the operating status of the lighting network, connection, various measurements. Additionally, in some projects, lighting solutions also included consoles and pole fastening systems, accessories for connecting to the existing electrical network.
In total, city halls and public institutions that have chosen PPC Advanced Energy Services Romania’s smart lighting solutions save 3,200 MWh per year for street, pedestrian, or indoor lighting. The amount saved could be used to power a city with 15,000 LED streetlights for a year.
