Celle Ligure, october 4th 2019
We continue our intervention alongside the Italian Municipalities. The Municipality of Celle Ligure has in fact taken part, together with the Province of Savona, in the ELENA Project (European Local Energy Assistance), financed by the European program "Intelligent Energy Europe" of the EIB (European Investment Bank).
We have been chosen to carry out the requalification and management of public lighting.
The intervention will aim to improve the quality of life by focusing on the sustainability of the Municipality through:
- an investment of € 900,000
- a total of 2,300 upgraded lighting points
- CO2 reduction of 210 tons per year
The works will start by the end of 2019 and will end in the spring of 2020.
«We are aware that ENGIE Italia is one of the leading companies that focuses on harmonious progress, leading projects with great sensitivity and responsibility towards the environmental impact: reducing CO2 emissions is their main objective and at such an important time for safeguarding the environment we fully share their great commitment.
We trust in a responsible and effective management in full cooperation in order to achieve important goals».
Caterina Mordeglia, Mayor of Celle Ligure
"We are thrilled to be at the side of a virtuous city such as Celle Ligure who has chosen a path to innovation and sustainability. Thanks to the planned interventions, concrete benefits will be achieved at the environmental level, a cut of 210 tons of CO2 in the atmosphere per year, as if 180 less cars were circulating on the streets of Celle Ligure, and in greater safety for the inhabitants. Our ambition is to lead a future with zero CO2 emissions, improve the quality of life of people and cities. And together we can achieve it».
Olivier Jacquier, ENGIE Italia CEO
