I came across a very interesting large-scale energy saving case study from a town in Spain called Torrejon, where reducing street lighting costs formed a major focus of the project.
This numbers amongst one of the largest ESCO projects to have recently been completed in Spain and the great news is that we have managed to get Ferrovial to showcase this project at ESCO Europe 2014!
Torrejon is a medium sized town with 123,000 inhabitants and with the following lighting features:
- 14,000 street lighting points
- 200 control centres for public lighting
- 102 public fountains
- 50 traffic lighting points
- 11 million KWh used annually on public street lighting
The Torrejon project was certainly large scale. But, just as impressive as the size were the results achieved. Below gives just a few statistics on the financial, energy and carbon savings made.
- A saving of 8.6 GWh was achieved on annual energy usage
- 792,000 Euros were saved – amounting to 18% off the previous energy consumption
- This amounted to a reduction of 2,440 tonnes of CO2 – representing a 35% reduction
