LED public street lighting of Milan

The whole LED public street lighting of Milan was one of AEC’s most important public lighting projects. Milan was the first major metropolitan city in Europe to make the decision to completely renovate its light by choosing AEC’s innovative solutions. In 2015, in conjunction with the Universal Exposition EXPO, AEC Illuminazione was awarded the tender announced by A2A for the supply of over 120,000 lighting fixtures from the ITALO series. The “ LED-powered Milan” project has made it possible to reduce energy consumption by 52% and expenses by 31%, significantly improving the usability of the city areas by citizens.
