Savings in public lighting
In accordance with the SEAP, work has continued on the modernization of Ostrava’s public lighting (street lighting) system – including the installation of LED technologies in place of the previously used gas-discharge lamps. Since 2014, only LED lamps with integrated power regulation have been installed as part of this process (the first LED lamps were installed in 2010).
The mean energy consumption per lighting point decreased between 2013 and 2015 from 0.485 MWh to 0.471 MWh. This falling trend in energy consumption by Ostrava’s public lighting network is a result of the application of modern LED technologies combined with a consistent long-term policy of using lighting systems which reliably meet stipulated quality parameters (in terms of technology, light quality, lifespan and design) without compromising on lighting performance.
