BH Technologies : a comprehensive approach providing solutions and responses adapted to each situation, giving concrete results on the ground.
Public lighting is at the heart of the concerns of local politicians, who inherit an aging fleet approximately street lights and other fixtures which are heavily energy-intensive and increasingly important for their municipalities.
Public lighting is estimated to account for 20% of the municipalities’ overall energy budget and 50% of their electricity consumption with a constant increase in the price of electricity (+125% between 2007 and 2014) communities are increasingly constricted. Moreover, this activity represents 21kg of CO² emitted per second in France.
Given the exponential increase of waste produced which in France alone has doubled in the last 40 years, the collection of waste has to respond to the evolution of consumption, production and eating habits of the population. The management of waste collection therefore represents a real challenge for territories both economically, financially and environmentally.
In the field of sustainable ecological transition, the management of public lighting and waste collection must be optimised, with response adapted to the needs and uses of the population, while responding to economic and ecological challenges which are presented to local representatives : reduction of the energy costs, operation and maintenance costs, improvement of services quality for users, adoption of new technologies, responsible eco-commitment and many more…
Consuming better by spending less, switching on lighting only when it si necessary and appropriate, effectively managing waste collection to reduce pollution, these are the keys to success for municipalities that aim to commit to a proactive energy transition.
