In cities, we are experts in the installation and renovation of street lighting, with 300,000 points of street lighting in Italy. Frosinone is a good example of this.

Frosinone ( south-east of Rome), New light for the city

In this city, near Rome, we installed 8,300 new lighting devices with LED technology, equipped with automatic light flow control. This goes with the renovation of the public lighting infrastructures. These works and the operation of the system by ENGIE make Frosinone a better and safer city to live in. This successful partnership was celebrated with a special event: the city was colored in ENGIE blue for several days. This raised its inhabitants’ awareness about the importance of an efficient and modern public lighting. Over the next 14 years, the city will save 12,408 Tons of CO2.

A virtuous example of “Public Administration aware” in partnership with a private company.

ENGIE in Italy is making another big leap towards energy transition: all the electricity supplied to individual clients and small companies will be "100% green". This entirely renewable energy is certified by the mechanism of “Guarantees of Origin”.

With no extra cost for the customer, ENGIE commits for a carbon-free world to fight climate change.

“100% Green” energy is complemented by other green initiatives already available to household customers, ranging from intelligent energy monitoring services, to energy saving devices, to home-based photovoltaic solutions.

Milan, green solution for condominiums

“Caro gasolio, ti saluti”! Dear fuel, we say you good bye! ENGIE is supporting the city of Milan for the upgrading of the heating systems of Milan’s condominiums. Milan has decided to ban in 2023 gasoil boilers in the city and has allocated 20 M€, between 2018 and 2019, for the energy upgrading of private buildings. ENGIE has been working closely with this city since years on air quality and will play a key role in this significant energy transition with offers and solutions that guarantee energy efficiency and savings.

ENGIE also developed specific digital tools for condominiums. An application called “Convivium” facilitates interaction between the building manager and the tenants and between the tenants themselves. Convivium allows to report, in real-time, technical issues, ensures traceability of reporting management, making building administration easy and efficient.
