Covenant of Mayors webinar: Public lighting modernization: Central European examples of territorial cooperation (Poland & Slovakia)
25 February 2016 10:00 - 11:30
Online, Belgium

Public lighting represents an excellent opportunity for municipal administrations to decrease their energy consumption and emissions. Territorial cooperation, adequate technical assistance and catalyzing financial support from EU funds, or GHG quota sales can assist in action.

This time, successful Polish and Slovakian territorial approaches will be shared. These illustrate very significant emission reductions (as over 80% of electricity generation in Poland is based on coal), and the supportive role of EU funding (Intelligent Energy Europe, EIB ELENA).

The about EUR 50 million Polish national SOWA program was financed in a Green Investment Scheme by a program of the Polish National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOSiGW), the National Coordinator of the Covenant of Mayors in Poland.   

A regional case study of Pomerania (Poland), in relation with the EU (IEE) funded project Streetlight-EPC will highlight issues and potential solutions.

The public lighting component of the EIB ELENA project of the Presov Region (a Covenant of Mayors Coordinator, Slovakia) can demonstrate the impact of regional cooperation.
