The project “Energy efficiency and thermal rehabilitation of general education institutions in the municipality of Chisinau”

At the beginning of 2021, Chisinau City Hall launched the “Energy efficiency and thermal rehabilitation of buildings in Chisinau” project. Beneficiaries of this wonderful Project are also 20 educational institutions in the municipality.

The goal of the project is the energy efficiency of educational institutions as well as the improvement of study conditions for children and students.

Types of rehabilitation and energy efficiency works will be according to Green Energy principles, namely:

  • External insulation of the building, walls, roof and basement;
  • Replacement of carpentry;
  • Installation of the ventilation system with heat recovery;
  • Installation of the LED lighting system;
  • Replacement of thermal systems;
  • Installation of the intelligent electricity metering system;
  • Installation of photovoltaic panels;
  • Rehabilitation of engineering networks.

At the current stage, a series of activities are carried out in all 20 institutions, with early education institutions leading the way, such as:

  • Elaboration and dissemination to each beneficiary institution of the calendar of rehabilitation works, with the indication of the deadline;
  • Completion of the Urban Planning Certificate for each institution;
  • Elaboration of leaflets for teachers, parents, students regarding the performance of works within the institution;
  • Signing of handover-handover minutes (of the construction site);
  • Elaboration of the chromaticity of the facade of early education institutions, with the involvement of directors:
  • Selection of the economic agent that will serve the individual thermal points after the implementation of the project.

In order to ensure the smooth development and implementation of the given project, the Deputy Mayor Angela CUTASEVICI with the implementation team and the economic agent, in agreement with the administration of the General Directorate of Education, Youth and Sport of the Chisinau Municipal Council, conducts weekly meetings/work visits within the institutions beneficiary, together with the developers and the project coordinator from the City Hall, with the sector DETS heads, to discuss the needs, the exposed problems and to find the right solutions.

We mention that the Project is carried out with the support of two development partners: the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the European Investment Bank (EIB).
