The projects comprise energy efficiency interventions in 116 municipal buildings, integration of a total 3.2 MW of photovoltaics on the roofs of these buildings and re-lamping for the municipal lighting. Total energy savings are 45.6 GWh/y and the generated energy from RES is 4.8 GWh/y.
More specific, energy efficiency improvement of municipal buildings includes interventions on building envelope, HVAC and lighting systems, according to the needs of each building. The energy savings after the completion of the interventions are estimated 8 GWh/year. Also, PVs are integrated into the roofs of municipal buildings in order to cover a large proportion of the buildings’ needs for electricity.
The improvement of municipal street lights that takes place in 3 Municipalities with 6.3 MW of installed capacity, reduces the energy consumption by 37.6 GWh/year. The interventions include replacement of existing lamps with LED and integration of dimming equipment that could be combined with communication systems and security cameras where necessary.
All interventions in municipal buildings and street lighting, aim both to save energy as well as to improve the conditions for users.
