During the 13 following years, over 380 reconstruction projects are planned and 15 locations or remarkable buildings will be highlighted by light effects.

Otherwise, the fact that Citeos and SPIE implemented high-performance and intelligent materials, especially by deploying 7 000 LEDS light fixtures on residential roads and pedestrian traffic, evolving luminous intensity depending of the hour of the night, installation of presence detection systems on 500 luminous points located on pedestrian paths, will allow to reduce energy consumption by over 40% within 10 years.
