Italy Case study – Energy Efficiency Interventions for public buildings and lighting systems in Turin [Sep. 2019]

Summary

2013 - Ongoing

The city of Turin implemented a series of measures to decrease the energy consumption of its public buildings and lighting stock. Widespread monitoring systems and a more climate-friendly building code were introduced to increase the efficiency of its public buildings. The city’s public lighting bulbs were also substituted with energy-efficient LEDs.

Highlights

Policy type: Public intervention

  • Application of robust energy efficiency standards for public buildings renovation
  • Fruitful partnership between city and university in gathering relevant data to improve technical and policy choices
  • Widespread introduction of energy consumption monitoring systems in schools to raise awareness early on about the impact of their behavioural changes and simple thoughtful actions on energy saving
  • Higher than expected energy savings by switching public lighting bulbs to LEDs
