Project idea

The basic idea is that an investor and supplier advocates the modernisation of luminaires. The financing of the measure is obtained from the consequent energy saving. As an advantage as compared with normal conversion carried out on its own, the city hopes for several benefits. On the one hand, it is expected that the company executing the work will contribute its specialist competence in technology and economic efficiency to the solution and in that way provide additional stimuli also for the City of Bottrop's own solutions. On the other hand, such a first case of contracting can also serve as an example and model for similar solutions in other task areas of the City of Bottrop.
