Lighting contributes to city’s urban renewal efforts
For several years we have been working with Agde city planners in their efforts to improve the city’s quality of life—while making sustainability a priority. A partnership with Citelum covering both technical and financial aspects of the project enabled Agde to completely upgrade its lighting infrastructure.
Agde, home to a reputed Mediterranean marina, wanted to beautify the city, enhancing attractiveness to tourists while expressing a strong commitment to sustainable development. Our street lighting played an important role in helping the city achieve these goals by:
Agde’s infrastructure needed extensive renovation work requiring substantial investment. The city deemed a public-private partnership with Citelum the most relevant solution to its urban lighting needs.
Our partnership with the city resulted in:
Despite the fact that Agde’s lighting installation expanded under our partnership, the system’s total energy consumption has already dropped. The partnership ultimately guarantees a 15.5% reduction in energy consumption, which will be achieved through:
In addition, our new lighting systems will not generate any light pollution.
Our talent for artistic lighting design prompted Agde to invest in a far-reaching distinctive lighting program for ten of its most emblematic sites spanning centuries of local history: the 17th-century Coeur de Ville House, the 19th-century Belle-Agathoise Fountain, and a variety of other churches and sites significant to the area’s history and maritime geography.
Agde’s lighting systems are run using our PackWeb® computer-assisted maintenance software.
