The city of Ivano-Frankivsk and NEFCO has cooperated since 2007 to implement energy-efficiency modernisations in 56 educational institutions in the city and has recently signed a loan agreement for additional financing to the ongoing large scale energy-efficiency project.

The new project phases - phase II and III - aim to renovate additional 44 buildings and are expected to result in further 2,300 tonnes annual CO2 reductions and generate more than EUR 420,000 in annual cost savings.

The first phase of the large scale energy-efficiency project has been completed this year, including refurbishment of a rehabilitation centre and day-care centres No. 4, 16, 18, 23, 33, and 36. The implemented energy-efficiency measures in these 7 buildings will result in annual cost savings totaling approx. EUR 140,000 for the city.

Financing for phases I-III has been provided by NEFCO in Ukraine, the city of Ivano-Frankivsk, Sweden, and Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership Fund - E5P.

Attached photos are from the renovated day-care centres No. 4, No. 33 and No. 23 during the first phase of the ongoing energy-efficiency project. Photo credits: Norsk Energi/ Ihor Rybitskiy for NEFCO.

Energy-efficient schools and day care centres – a real opportunity for Georgia? | EU Neighbours

We are together with Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership Fund - E5P, @EUinGeorgia and @DanishMFA financing #energyefficiency improvements in public buildings across #georgia. The project comprises renovations of 26 buildings, incl. 12 schools and 7 day-care centres. Read the story on
EU Neighbour East website https://www.euneighbours.eu/en/east/eu-in-action/stories/energy-efficient-schools-and-day-care-centres-real-opportunity-georgia #EU4Energy.

One of Georgia’s priorities for 2019–2020 is to increase the energy efficiency of public buildings, including day care centres and schools. On the one hand, this will reduce municipal costs, and on the other, it will lay the foundations for a new environmentally conscious system.

Energy-efficient street lighting improves safety | Nefco

Just some 40 km away from the military conflict zone in Eastern #ukraine, more than 60,000 inhabitants will benefit from improved safety as a result of updated #streetlighting and installed #trafficlights.

The new lighting system improves #energyefficiency, reduces costs and helps to strengthen self-government of the city of Rubizhne, situated in the Luhansk region.

The implemented measures have been financed with a grant provided from the Nordic Initiative for Energy Efficiency and Humanitarian Support in Ukraine (NIU), a facility launched in 2014 by the Nordic Ministers of Foreign Affairs.

An innovative technology to remove and recover micro plastics from industrial wastewater receives financing from the BSAP Fund.

The Finnish company Sofi Filtration has developed an innovative water treatment technology, the Sofi Filter, which has been utilised in for example construction and power generation industries, to remove plastic contaminants from wastewater.

With funding from the Baltic Sea Action Plan Fund (BSAP), Sofi Filtration intends to assess the plastics industry in Finland and Sweden to find the sources of industrial plastics contamination to the Baltic Sea and to demonstrate the solution to the plants. Additionally, Sofi Filtration will promote wastewater recycling in applicable processes, as well as collect the plastics for potential reuse.

Regardless if the wastewater is discharged to nature or to municipal systems, the best method to prevent the problem is to go to the source, to treat the contaminants before they are mixed to extremely large flows and with many other types of solid contaminants.
