A school in the Ukrainian town of Slavutych has been thermally insulated to make it more energy efficient, thanks to the EU-funded Covenant of Mayors – Demonstration Projects programme.
The school’s old windows have been replaced with new double glazed upgrades, its facades have been insulated using mineral wool in accordance with EU standards, and a new ventilation system and individual heat point have been installed in the building. It is planned that the renovation works will be completed at the end of November 2017. The school, known as “school no.2” in the context of the project, will be one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the town and will already be able to save money on heating this winter.
Covenant of Mayors – Demonstration Projects (CoM-DeP) is a European Union programme in the EaP countries which supports small towns that have signed up to the Covenant of Mayors initiative to implement energy efficiency projects identified within their Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs), with grants as well as technical assistance. The support team of the CoM-DeP provides grants to 19 selected projects, as well as technical, procedural and communication assistance.
