Resalta's latest public private partnership in the SEE region is with Nova Crnja, a municipality in Vojvodina, Serbia. The public private partnership contract is for the modernization of public lighting in the municipality. Resalta has replaced 1,321 obsolete and inefficient luminaires with LED luminaires.
The new energy efficient Philips luminaires installed have reduced the lighting capacity by 144 kW, down to 24 kW. The municipality will enjoy annual energy savings of nearly 600 MWh and will see its CO2 emissions lowered by 316 tons each year. The luminaires were carefully selected following photometric measurements to fill all the requirements of the city and its surrounding towns.
All the lighting equipment has already been installed. In the coming month, Resalta will also replace the obsolete systems for switching public lighting on and off in all 50 substations in the municipality, with an automated system regulated by an astronomic clock adjusted for the conditions in Nova Crnja, enabling optimal energy savings as well as the required 4,000 operating hours per year.
Public private partnerships (PPPs) between Resalta and a public partner mean that Resalta provides financing and implements the project, also providing maintenance services for the duration of the contract. Resalta recoups its investment gradually, with the public partner immediately benefiting from savings. Once the contract expires, the public partner benefits from the full amount of savings.
This is one of many public-private partnerships Resalta has implemented in the region. Notable projects include the largest energy efficiency PPP in the region signed with the City of Ljubljana, in a consortium with Petrol, for the energy retrofit of 49 municipal buildings, as well as the public private partnership for heat supply with the City of Pirot. Public lighting is also a common object of public-private partnerships, with Resalta having carried out renovations in the cities of Kruševac and Petrovac na Mlavi in Serbia, along with municipalities Ada and Žabalj, and the Istrian city of Novigrad in Croatia. Resalta will continue to work with cities and municipalities throughout the region in its efforts to improve energy efficiency in the public sector.
