Chisinau, 12 November /MOLDPRES/ - About 40 associations of residents from seven cities will make trainings for enhancing the energy efficiency of buildings, following applications on participation, submitted for the First Swallows, project. The Infrastructure and Regional Development Ministry (MIDR) made statements to this effect on 11 November.
According to MIDR, more managers of apartment blocks from Chisinau, Calarasi, Soroca, Ceadar-Lunga, Drochia, Balti, Hancesti will be familiarized with possibilities of financing energy efficiency projects, including about administrative, legal and technical aspects of modernization of multistoried apartment blocks. The project also sees that, following the training, ten associations of residents will continue taking part in the project and will have possibility to make a free of charge audit of the building.
„In the final stage, up to three projects will be selected, depending on the budget of the concerned project for the elaboration of the documentation of the lists. The selection of projects will be made also based on the decisions taken by the general assemblies of owners of residential buildings, which shows the residents’ willingness to implement and finance measures of energy efficiency. The project’s implementation will contribute, in short and medium term, to the creation of an Energy Efficiency Fund for the residential sector, as well as to the enhancement of the degree of people’s awareness about the importance and opportunities of improving the energy efficiency and development of renewable energy sources,’’ MIDR said.
