High School Prozor-Rama, Secondary Traffic School/Secondary Mechanical School in Mostar, and Center for culture “Narodni Univerzitet Konjic” are becoming energy efficient.
Within the Bosnia Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP), that is being implemented by the Federal Ministry of Physical Planning, three more facilities in the Herzegovina-Neretva Canton will become energy-efficient in the upcoming period. On that occasion, agreements between Josip Martić, Federal Minister of Physical Planning of BiH, and representatives of selected contractors, joint venture (Joint Venture – JV) Građevinar Fajić d.o.o. Mostar, Staklorad d.o.o. Mostar and HP Investing d.o.o. Mostar were signed today.
The three facilities energy efficiency measures will be implemented are the ones of the High School Prozor-Rama, Secondary Traffic School/Secondary Mechanical School in Mostar, and Center for culture “Narodni Univerzitet Konjic.” In total, more than 1.2 million BAM will be invested in their renovation.
“From the beginning of the implementation of the Project, back in 2016, until today, in Herzegovina-Neretva Canton, energy efficiency measures have been implemented on 15 facilities. Over 8.8 million BAM were invested in their renovation. In addition to significant economic savings, which amounted to slightly more than 1.1 million KM annually, we should not forget other benefits of the renovation of these facilities. On the one hand, this is a significant improvement in comfort for the users of each of the facilities. On the other hand, this is a significant contribution to the protection of the environment. At the same time, results achieved are an additional motivation for us to continue the implementation of the Project, in order to reduce consumption of energy in public buildings, but also to ensure a more pleasant stay for all citizens,” said Josip Martic, Federal Minister of Physical Planning of BiH.
Implementation of energy efficiency measures at these facilities includes works such as replacement of facade openings, thermal insulation of walls and roofs, replacement of lighting fixtures with more energy-efficient ones, installation of new pellet boilers, replacement of energy sources, etc. The implementation of energy efficiency measures has been successfully completed at 48 facilities in the Federation of BiH, in which 22.4 million BAM have been invested. Annual savings are estimated at 2.7 million BAM, while CO2 emissions have been reduced by 3.714 tons per year.
