Development of energy services - public lighting in Trenčín

Organisation: Združenie Slatinka Website: Added: September 20, 2022
Project start date: June 01, 2020
Project end date: June 01, 2021


Project Objective: The aim of the project is to encourage the city and other public entities to adopt low-carbon strategies with clear targets and an emphasis on environmental protection, which is a prerequisite for systematically reducing greenhouse gas emissions, taking into account regional allocative conditions, in line with the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU. Project description: The project entitled "Development of energy services - reduction of energy intensity of buildings in the city of Trenčín" within the call OPKZP-PO4-SC441-2019-53 aimed at the development of energy services at regional and local level will be focused on the development of a dedicated energy audit by a professionally qualified person for the purpose of identifying and proposing energy efficiency measures feasible in the form of guaranteed energy service (hereinafter referred to as "GES") for selected objects/buildings. The preparation of the GES (Guaranteed Energy Service) project for the system of public buildings in the city of Trenčín shall be carried out on the basis of the results of the written energy audit report, which the applicant shall publish on its website for the duration of the project's sustainability. The project preparation shall result in the conclusion of an Energy Efficiency Contract for the public sector (or a public procurement notice). The project implementation site is the cadastral territory of the city of Trenčín, Kubrá, Opatová, Trenčianske Biskupice, Záblatie, Hanzlíková and Istebník.

Buildings are one of the sectors that produce the most greenhouse gas emissions, conceptually reducing their demands and increasing efficiency is key to achieving carbon neutrality and therefore also the development of similar audit-oriented projects.
