A regional creative contest of energy art objects “Light - 100 years”, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the GOELRO plan, has started in the Lipetsk region. The event was organized by the branch “Rosseti Centre Lipetskenergo” in partnership with the Department of Electrical Equipment of the Lipetsk State Technical University and the winner of the last year’s contest - the Lipetsk Metallurgical College.
The contest is held in three categories. All interested residents of the region can take part in it. In the nomination "Firstborn GOELRO" they are invited to present models of historical energy facilities in the region. The “Modern Energy” nomination accepts 3D models of existing power equipment. In accordance with the terms of the most creative nomination, “Digital Future”, participants need to develop concepts for transforming power grid facilities. It can be models of stylized poles, creative lighting installations, projects of urban and regional space in the form of alleys, squares and parks with unusual lighting and architectural solutions.
