In 2011, Polotsk was the first Belarusian city to join the Covenant of Mayors and develop a Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP). The PubLiCity project helped Polotsk to implement the SEAP measures for energy-efficient modernization of city lighting. Thanks to the project, central streets and major avenues of the city became better-lit, and public lighting now consumes less energy.
The project was funded by the European Union under the EU4Energy initiative and CoM-DeP (Covenant of Mayors – Demonstration Projects) Programme.
