Our 3-D process
01 –PROJECT PREPARATION
Despite this phase being least visible, it represents the most important part of project.
Skipping this phase will result with problems in next phases.
ENERGY AUDIT & GIS
Verification of existing inventory database by conducting integrity analysis and performing updates with relevant data. We have developed Methodology for a detail energy audit of street lighting in order to collect all the relevant information which is the starting point for future analyses and project activities.
Data collected within this phase will be available for use in GIS based programs for inhouse street lighting analysis (maintenance/future needs etc).
TECHNICAL, FINANCIAL AND LEGAL ANALYSIS
Analysis of relevant technical and financial options and legal requirements in order to find an optimal project scope regarding financing possibilities and other tailor-made aspects.
TENDER & CONTRACT DOCUMENTATION
Preparation of project-tailored tender documentation and contract in accordance with legal and financial aspects. Legal and technical support in tender procedure and contractor appointment.
Luminaire replacement takes place
Introducing the contracted company (ESCO) into the scope of the contract.
DESIGN & IMPLEMENTATION

03 – VERIFICATION
When the implementation phase is done, the project is just beginning. Monitoring and verification of delivered lighting service is under way for the whole of your contract duration. If previous phases have been done correctly, verification should not cause a problem.
Verification confirms that the lighting solution meets all requirements.
Workshops for inhouse capacity building for self-contained contract management.
MEASURING & VERIFICATION PROTOCOL implementation
Following procedures agreed at contract appointment . Measuring and verification of lighting standards and energy performance.
BENEFITS OF LIGHTING AS A SERVICE
Energy savings usually covers all project expenditures.
If arranged properly, contract is not public debt.
Most of the financial and technical risks are transferred to a private company.
Contracted services (ie energy savings, lighting standard) are guaranteed for the contract duration. If guaranteed services are not delivered, the renumeration is denied.
Immediate energy, financial and CO2 savings are guaranteed.
Since ESCO take on majority of risks, they are often highly specialized in financing and technical knowledge.
In the EU 2021-2028 financial scheme, innovative financing models will be highly encouraged.
Phase out of non-harmonised luminaires and its spare parts (energy inefficient, containing hazardous chemical , light pollutants) means cost demanding maintenance.
