Luxembourg-funded project helps light up Hue city

The central province of Thua Thien-Hue has implemented a sub-project to replace conventional lights with less energy consuming Light Emitting Diodes (LED) lights along streets in Hue city under the Energy Efficient Lighting NAMA Pilot project (VIE/401) funded by Luxemburg.

The move aims to contribute to implementing the national green growth programme and promoting efforts to cope with climate change and effectively use energy in Hue city.

The 2019-2020 project has a total investment of more than 500,000 EUR (over 552,000 USD) sourced from the non-refundable aid of the Luxembourg Climate and Energy Fund (CEF) under the Ministry of Sustainable Development & Infrastructure.

Chairman of the provincial People's Committee Phan Ngoc Tho said the project helped the locality replace old lights with LEDs on 21 streets in Hue city, including 19 streets in the northern bank of Huong River.

The project has installed 1,044 sets of 120W, 150W, 180W LEDs and related equipment; while destroying old lights which are no longer conformable to standards.

Through the installation of more than 22,000 LEDs in target areas, selected urban roads, as well as schools or kindergartens, the pilot project VIE/401 is estimated to achieve total cumulative emission reductions of around 11,700 tCO2 up to 2029, with associated energy savings of over 17 GWh.

In recent time, the municipal authority also installed about 4,000 new LEDs to increase lighting capacity and save energy. Thanks to these efforts, the province has successfully organised pedestrian routes along Chu Van An-Pham Ngu Lao-Vo Thi Sau streets in Hue city.

At presents, about 5,000 lights in Hue city need to be replaced to increase lighting in park areas, along the banks of Huong River and new residential areas.
