Kharkiv Regional Council, a territorial supervisor of the project "The Covenant of Mayers East", congratulates Chuhuiv community with successful implementation of inaugural project of the Energy Efficiency Fund "First swallows".

First swallows" is an inaugural project of the Energy Efficiency Fund that has been launched in 2019 for testing the Fund's procedures in order to work out the step-by-step  way of a Fund's client and improve working procedures: from energy audit to verification of energy efficiency measures. 15 housing cooperatives all over Ukraine have been  selected for its implementation. (Only 11 of them went on working in the project.)

From March 2019  Housing cooperative "Dobrobut Chuhuiva" has been implementing the inaugural project for testing the  Energy Efficiency Fund's procedures on house modernisation. In accordance with recommendations of energy auditors, an individual heating unit has been installed in the house, the heating system pipelines have been replaced and insulated, the  heating system has been balanced as well. The implementation of these measures enabled to raise energy efficiency class of the house from the lowest G to medium F.

The total cost of the energy modernisation project of the housing cooperative "Dobrobut Chuhuiva" was equal to UAH 486,490.00, out of which the amount of UAH 291,894.00 is grant funding (60% of the project value).

The grant has been provided at the expense of resources of the Multi-Donor Trust Fund  being administered by IFC, a group of the World bank. The resources of this fund had been made at the expense of contributions from the European Union and the government of Germany. Besides, a part of the grant has been paid from the project "Support for national Energy Efficiency Fund and Program of ecological reform (S21) in Ukraine" that is carried out by the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ GmbH) by order of the German government.

After energy renovation works Housing cooperative "Dobrobut Chuhuiva" obtained more than  16% of power consumption economy, i.e. this house can save up over UAH 144,000.00 per year. After energy-efficiency measures have been taken, the energy target of the heating system in Housing cooperative "Dobrobut Chuhuiva" decreased from 694.29 thousand kilowatt per annum down to 579.87 thousand kilowatt per annum.

Artur Denisenko, supervisor of the project "Support for national Energy Efficiency Fund and Program of ecological reform (S21) in Ukraine", stated that the heating savings are over 15% thanks to implementation of the energy-efficiency measures.

According to the words of Oleg Maslenikov, Regional advisor of IFC supportof the Energy Efficiency Fund, project implementation in Housing cooperative "Dobrobut Chuhuiva" is an example of quality and responsibility, how the renovated heating system should look like in compliance with national construction standards. Such modernisation provides with power consumption  economy, rising of comfort level in apartments and decrease in heating costs from family budgets.

For reference: "First swallows" is an inaugural project of the Energy Efficiency Fund that has been launched in 2019 for testing the Fund's procedures. 15 housing cooperatives all over Ukraine have been  selected for its implementation (at the present moment only 11 of them went on working in the project), which differ from each other by a number of co-owners, area of buildings and subsidiants.

The project has been created in order to test the step-by-step  way of a Fund's client and improve working procedures: from energy audit to verification of energy efficiency measures. The selected participants go through all the stages of the project implementation as prescribed by the procedures of the Energy Efficiency Fund. The following  housing cooperatives have completed  modernisation works in full volume and obtained grant: Housing cooperative "Lypy 2" from Novoyavorivsk, Housing cooperative "Povitriana 92" from Lviv, Housing cooperative "Hrushevskoho 13-A" from Brovary, and Housing cooperative "Dobrobut Chuhuiva" from Chuhuiv.
