This project improved the living conditions of 141 households, reduced the annual primary energy consumption from a total of 1,566,704 kWh/year to a total of 994,027 kWh/year and the amount of CO2 emissions from the 3 blocks of flats in Miercurea Ciuc from a total of 88.58 kg/m2/year to a total of 54.27 kg/m2/year. Thus, the municipality has generated a positive impact on the environment and climate change at local level.
The works consisted of insulation with expanded polystyrene, thermal insulation with polystyrene of the slab over the basement, insulation of the plinth, installation of PVC joinery with 5 chambers in the loggias and windows, thermal completion of the insulation system with non-combustible mineral wool strips, replacement of profiles, glazing, joinery, finishing and measures related to the thermal rehabilitation of the building.
7.237.096,98 RON (aprox. 1.600.000 EURO), financed by ROP (45% EU funding)
It is a very good example of investment in energy efficiency as far is well known that in Romania the energy efficiency of the flats is very low, and we can recommend to continue this kind of investments from EU Funds. Another recommendation would be to combine the energy efficiency investments with the use of renewable energy sources with measures as the decentralization of the energy supply systems.
