Sofia Regional Lighting Forum

The City of Sofia organized its first Regional Lighting Forum on the 22nd of November 2011 gathering many representatives of state and local authorities.

In her opening speech, the Mayor of Sofia Municipality, Mrs. Fandakova stressed the importance of public lighting as an integrated element in every project of the Municipality. The city has identified public lighting as one of its priorities in the coming year, during which it will select a new operator for the public lighting system and establish new requirements for the construction of energy effective lighting and intelligent control systems.

The Deputy Mayor Mr. Lyubomir Hristov, emphasized the municipality’s two major working directions: modernization of the existing lighting by replacement with more energy effective alternatives, and street lighting construction in the newly built residential and business zones.

PLUS partners will undoubtedly find out more during the Deep Dive in Sofia this February.
