Order of September 29, 2020 No. 2502-r

Ministries and departments have been instructed to prepare proposals that will stimulate the introduction of automated lighting systems on highways. The order was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

The use of technologies that regulate the lighting mode depending on the time of day will reduce energy costs and, as a result, save funds from budgets of different levels.

The federal authorities will also consider the possibility of gradually introducing restrictions on low energy efficiency road light sources. In addition, they were instructed to prepare solutions for the development of a voluntary certification system for lighting devices, which will reduce the volume of counterfeit products.

It is expected that the implementation of the set of measures will reduce electricity costs by an average of 30% while maintaining the existing level of road illumination. Proposals will be submitted to the Government by the end of the 1st quarter of 2021.
