The street lighting infrastructure in Kilkenny County was established during the past 60-70 years. The area selected for this project was a representative sample of the 9,800 lamps throughout the county. Street lighting represents approximately 55% of the municipality’s electricity consumption. The light quality was variable and unsatisfactory. The cost of the upgrades was traditionally the barrier to change.

The street lighting system of the municipality of Antiesenhofen was quite old (partly from the 60s) and represented a large percentage of the municipality's electricity consumption. The main objective of the project was to improve the physical state and energy efficiency of the street lighting system without compromising service quality. The municipality was interested in using an EPC (energy performance contracting) model for this project, 4 ESCOs were asked to submit an offer. The municipality wanted to limit the amount of digging and excavation work done during the project.
