What is the Public Lighting Funding Program?

Street lamps for public lighting contribute not only to the aesthetics of the town, but also to an energy consumption friendly to nature and people, as well as to a new vision of the digital city. Enel X enables the power of inventors and fine tunes the technologies created by them so that any city or commune in Romania can enjoy a better life through energy efficiency. If you want to apply to the AFM Public Lighting program to modernize the urban system of street and pedestrian street lighting, Enel X is the best choice.

How it works?

The program on boosting energy efficiency and smart energy management in public lighting infrastructure was pioneered by the Administration of the Environment Fund (AFM) for a purpose that guides us at Enel X: more energy efficient public lighting systems.

The competition aims for more and more administrative-territorial units to use LED products with a high level of energy efficiency, as are our innovative products. Once more and more communes, towns and municipalities will streamline their public lighting network, air quality will improve, following the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Do you want to modernize the public lighting infrastructure, replacing the light bulbs with LED bulbs and take control of the light flow through a remote management program? Apply to the Public Lighting Program with Enel X! We will facilitate the transformation of your locality through business-ready solutions based on progressive technology.

With Enel X, your project has the best chances of success, because our synergic solutions support the eligibility of the project, as defined by AFM, for example:

  • You will demonstrate a minimum energy saving of 40%, given that our LED products have a much higher efficiency

  • You will become the user of a dimming/remote management system or, as we call it, a remote-control technology, through which you will be able to adjust the brightness of the entire infrastructure 

The program budget will be determined soon.

The enrollment period is being fixed.  energetică.

  • Purchase of the works in the electric installation to implement the upgrades

  • Purchase of consultancy, design and project management

For public lighting infrastructure modernization projects in communes, towns and municipalities, public sector applicants can receive funding of up to 90% of the project value through this dedicated AFM program, while the remaining 10% must be covered from their own sources.

Depending on the number of inhabitants, funding is allocated as follows, in maximum amounts for each project:

  1. For administrative-territorial units with less than 4,000 inhabitants, Lei 500,000
