Energy efficient street lighting
In November 2013, in the first months of the PRIMES project, pilot-municipality Preiļi announced the first green public procurement. It was very simple and the municipality’s procurers tried to develop it more or less by themselves following the EU street lighting guidelines - before the opportunity to visit PRIMES trainings for procurers.
Main focus were on energy efficient lighting – replace old street lamps to new ones – energy efficient LED. The tender was announced and the winner identified, but because of a lack of financial resources the municipality couldn‘t implement the project and make a contract with the winner. In March 2015, the municipality applied for co-financing in the Climate Change Financial Instrument and got the co-financing. The tender was implemented in June 2015.
