EU PPF trainings – Infrastructure projects for Energy efficiency

Belgrade, December 17th, 2019

Good understanding of documents and procedures for improving energy efficiency in construction and reconstruction of buildings, as well as knowledge of the importance, purpose and procedure of energy audits, is of critical importance for successful implementation of energy efficiency projects in buildings.

With the aim of enhancing the knowledge of civil servants in Energy management system and implementation of energy efficiency infrastructure projects, EU PPF6 team organized training titled Implementation of Energy Efficiency infrastructure projects.

When evaluating a building that is undergoing reconstruction, Energy audit is first performed – a procedure that is aimed to establish the energy properties of a building and the extent to which those existing properties comply with the prescribed requirements. It includes check, review and analysis of energy flows (energy production, transmission, consumption, losses) in a building to identify places with significant losses that represent potential for energy efficiency improvement. Based on the results of an Energy Audit, plans are made and measures are implemented that lead to at least 20% energy consumption savings and energy efficiency increase by at least one class, in accordance with the applicable legal regulations.

The trainees were also introduced to the procedures of estimation (measurement) and verification of energy savings, as well as the method of calculating the energy performance of a building, which is an important part of building energy certification procedure and obtaining of an energy passport.

A construction or rehabilitation project should monitor the estimated energy performance requirements in order to achieve the anticipated energy savings in the use of the facility.

This was the last training in energy efficiency, and it was completed by 25 participants who successfully answered to all trainer’s questions on acquired knowledge from 4 previous energy efficiency trainings. Those were representatives of the Ministry of European Integration, Ministry of Finance – Department for Contracting and Financing of European Union Funded programs, Ministry of Mining and Energy, Ministry of Defence, Belgrade Land Development Public Agency, Energy Secretariat, PE EPS, the Belgrade City Library, the Students’ Healthcare Institute and the Austrian Development Agency ADA.
