The Energy Efficiency Fund (EEF) is a state institution that provides tools for thermal modernization of apartment buildings with condominiums – house owners associations (HOAs).
On September 3, 2019, EEF’s program “Energodim” started. This means that all HOAs can apply for a partial reimbursement of energy efficiency measures in their buildings.
The EEF’s support is to provide grants for the implementation of comprehensive technical solutions for energy efficiency of buildings, taking into account the best European practices. After their implementation, the HOAs will be able not only to save money on utilities, but also to increase the level of comfort of life.
Benefits of participating in the Energy Efficiency Fund program:
- ACMHs will be able to receive partial reimbursement for energy efficiency measures in the building under the Fund’s Program.
- System approach to thermal renovation. Reimbursement will be made for materials and equipment, as well as for construction work. There is a mandatory energy audit, which should show what measures should be taken in each building.
The Foundation’s program consists of 3 stages:
- PHASE I Preparation for EE activities;
- PHASE II: Project documentation and expertise;
- STAGE III: Construction work and verification.
An obligatory condition for submitting an application to the Fund is conducting an energy audit. To do this, condominiums must decide on a preliminary energy audit, so that the energy auditor draws up an energy certificate for the building and fills out a recommendation report, which reflects the list of energy efficiency measures for their implementation in the building of condominiums.
Energy audit for the construction of condominiums is an energy audit of the building to determine the efficient use of energy resources and recommendations for the implementation of energy efficiency measures that will increase the comfort of residents and significantly reduce energy consumption, thereby reducing the cost of housing.
The result of the energy audit is a report on the energy audit of the building, which describes the current state, identifies critical places through which energy loss occurs, and the reasons for their occurrence, also develops a list of measures to eliminate or reduce them, estimates the estimated cost of such measures. Saving energy and funds that will lead to the implementation of energy efficiency measures and the priority of their implementation.
Together with the energy audit report, experienced certified energy auditors of Top-Inform develop an energy certificate and prepare the necessary documents for submitting an application to the Energy Efficiency Fund.
