The 19th Salzburg Europe Summit is held, organized by the Institute of the Regions of Europe (IRE) under the name “Europe: Departure to New Horizons!
On the panel “Western Balkans as a Region of the Future” were highlighted the possibilities of companies to invest in infrastructure areas, especially in the field of ⚡️energy.
Tadić pointed out that investors in the European Union should motivate companies to invest in projects that improve the lives of citizens and lead to the transfer of knowledge and technologies.
“In local self-governments in Serbia, there is a positive mood for cooperation with companies from the European Union, and some of the excellent examples are the companies Zumtobel Group and PALFINGER AG.
On the first day of the Conference, the Austrian Chancellor, Karl Nehammer, MSc, addressed the audience.
Among the respected speakers at the conference were the Minister for European Integration Tanja Miscevic, as well as the European Commissioner for Budget and Administration Johannes Hahn.

In the Municipality of Bač, the implementation of the public lighting reconstruction project was completed!
Savings in electricity consumption will amount to about 11,333,000 kWh, which is for 15 years of the contract a reduction of about 73%, compared to the previous consumption.
The Municipality will achieve financial savings in the budget of at least 💶936,000 EUR, while the project will reduce CO2 emissions by about 830 tons every year.
On the territory of the Municipality, 1,723 pieces of new Schréder LED luminaires were implemented, which contributes to energy efficient lighting along roads, streets and squares.
“Beside lighting up our streets, we are saving energy and improving the quality of life of our citizens,” said the president of the Municipality, Dr. Steva Panić.
Bač becomes a bright example for other local self-governments that want to reduce carbon footprint and improve the quality of life in their community.
The Municipality of Odžaci applied the Recommendation for reducing electric energy consumption of the Ministry of Mining and Energy, using LED lighting that reduces consumption.
The #PPP project is realized and independently financed by the Slovenian company Interenergo Group, a member of the Kelag Energie group and the Hungarian company Smart Energy Investment Kft, in accordance with the Law on Public-Private Partnership.
On the territory of the Municipality, 3,954 Schréder LED luminaires were implemented, and lighting was installed for the first time in certain locations.
This project will result in an annual reduction of CO2 by about 1,400 tons, which means that the Municipality is taking a step forward towards to achieving sustainable development goals (#SDGs) and implementing the “green agenda”.
The implementation of the new lighting will result in savings of at least 38,000 euros per year in the local self-government budget, without investment from the Municipality.
The public-private partnership project provided high-quality public lighting services in Odžaci for a period of 15 years.
We are pleased that UNECE has praised our #letsSEIvtogether project for reconstruction of public lighting system in the City of Zaječar and showed that this project is shining example of #PPPs, aligned with the sustainable development goals (#SDGs) and environmental protection.
Proud that this is the first time that a project from Serbia has been praised from United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.

/SEI/v application permanently improves our service!
Our #letsSEIvtogether team has developed an application for the preparation, monitoring, implementation and quality assurance, which gives real-time data of the project, luminaires and dynamics of implementation in one place.
The application was implemented for the first time in the Municipality of Čoka, which is the fastest implemented project so far in Serbia.

In just two months, the period of preparation and implementation of the public lighting reconstruction #letsSEIvtogether project in the Municipality of Čoka was completed, instead of the expected six months, according to the contract.
“The small Municipality of Čoka, with a more than modest budget, achieves great savings with this PPP through more efficient use of energy, reduction of CO2 emissions and reduction of operational costs of functioning and maintenance of the public lighting system,” said the President of the Čoka Municipality, Ms. Stana Đember.
The new public lighting system will also contribute to significant financial savings, and according to expectations, more than 70,000 EUR will remain in the municipal budget.
We had the honor that Mr. Alfred Felder, CEO of the Zumtobel Group, one of the leaders in the field of public lighting and innovative lighting solutions, visited our company Smart Energy Investment Kft.
We presented to Mr. Felder the joint #letsSEIvtogether project in the Municipality of Čoka, where Thorn LED luminaires from the Zumtobel Group were implemented and the project was realized in just two months.
We are proud of our #partnership with the Zumtobel Group company and we consider this visit as an important step towards continuing our collaboration on projects that improve life in municipalities throughout Serbia.
In the Municipality of Bač, a PPP contract for the reconstruction of public lighting was concluded. Last year, this municipality received an award from the Council of Europe and the status of a partner for participation in the European Week of Local Democracy. One of the activities initiated on that occasion is the education of young population in the field of environmental protection.
By installing 1,723 new pieces of Schréder LED luminaires, a modern public lighting system is obtained.
In 15 years, as long as the contract period lasts, the Municipality will have a reduction in electricity consumption by about 73% compared to the previous one, while CO2 emissions will be decreased by 830 tons per year.
“Are we more satisfied with new energy transformed from some other energy or happier and more successful because we need less energy?” – Obrad Tadic, CEO of Smart Energy Investment Kft for CorD Magazine.
