The closing ceremony of the EU-funded project “Access to Renewable and Efficient Energy in Municipalities Vayk and Spitak”, implemented by the Habitat for Humanity Armenia Foundation in partnership with the Spitak and Vayk municipalities, took place on 30 November. The ceremony was attended by the EU Ambassador to Armenia, Andrea Wiktorin, who, in her welcoming remarks, highlighted the importance of energy efficiency as one of the priority areas of the European Union’s support in Armenia.
The total budget for the project, which lasted 2 years, was €1,350,000. The project aimed to support the municipalities of Spitak and Vayk to develop and test replicable and efficient model(s) of energy savings through the use of effective measures and renewable sources in residential and public buildings (in line with their community development plans and sustainable energy action plan and the requirements of the Covenant of Mayors (CoM)), as well as to help the two towns to meet the energy efficiency standards set under the CoM for Climate and Energy. As a result of the project, a total of 45 residential buildings underwent thermal refurbishment. In total, 1,160 people in Spitak and 2,640 people in Vayk benefited from the project.
