The Project concerns the promotion of energy efficient reconstruction and modernization of selected public buildings in the education sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The purpose of the Project is to (i) improve the energy efficiency of public buildings (focus: faculties, schools and kindergartens) in Bosnia and Herzegovina and hence (ii) improve public service delivery in the education sector as well as (iii) poverty reduction.
The following Project activities shall be financed from the Financial Contribution:
Given the deficient public building stock it is necessary to go beyond mere energy efficiency measures and to focus on a holistic, i.e. comprehensive and sustainable refurbishment approach for the Project that optimizes energy efficiency. This holistic approach comprises three parts 1) investments, 2) energy controlling and 3) optimization of operations. The investments include not only (classical) energy efficiency measures (thermal insulation, exchange of window and doors, renewal of heating system etc.) but also structural/sustainability measures and comfort measures (see below).
Overall, this approach that leads to deeper renovations of public buildings (vs. “quick fixes” such as merely exchange of windows) that extend the lifetime of the buildings and allow energy and CO2 savings for a long-term period.
The main guideline for the rehabilitation of existing buildings is the EU Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27 and its amended Version (EU Energy efficiency Directive 2018/2002) in conjunction with the associated adjustments in Article 24 of the Energy Community Treaty, the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2010/31 and its amended Version (EU Energy Performance Directive Directive 2018/844 and EU Use of Renewable Energy Directive 2018/2001.
The buildings to be rehabilitated will be assessed by Structure and Energy Audits (SEA’s). The SEA’s will be elaborated by independent Energy Experts in a separate assignment. The final selection of the buildings and determination of the estimated investment will depend on the results of the SEAs and funds available.
The type of holistic, energy efficient rehabilitation of buildings applied in this Project comprises three types of investment measures:
