PAUCI Foundation has become an author of the project application for the EU competition within the "Covenant of Mayors - Demonstration Projects" (CoM-DeP 2) program which was selected one of 6 winners of the competition in Ukraine. According to the contract which was signed on December 28th, 2017 between the European Union and Myrhorod city, PAUCI Foundation is a co-applicant of the grant contract. 

The overall goals of the mentioned Project are:

  • To foster the achievement of the Covenant of Mayors goals concerning decreasing CO2 emissions by 20% until 2020;
  • To improve the capacity of the city council in implementation of complex energy efficiency projects according to SEAP, and also in energy management in municipal objects.

Other project goals are:

  • To improve the climate neutrality of the selected heating district by using renewable energy sources. 
  • To enhance the efficiency of energy usage by the modernization of energy generation - the boiler house, decreasing energy losses in the network, decommissioning the non-effective old boiler house. 
  • To decrease the energy consumption by the central heating consumer of the heating district - kindergarten № 10.
  • To implement a new approach and to improve the capacity of the personnel of kindergarten № 10 in energy usage, to conduct an educational campaign for parents and children. 
  • To improve the capacity of the municipality in energy management. 
  • A large-scale informational campaign for 5000 heating district residents, among whom there are approximately 2800 women and 2200 men. 

What will be done in terms of the project:

  • For heating the city heating district it is proposed to install new boilers that work on biomass instead of the gas boiler in the boiler house.

  • The old inefficient boiler house will be decommissioned. The consumers will be connected to the modernized boiler house. 
  • Complex thermo-modernization of the kindergarten will be conducted: replacement of windows and doors, modernization of the heating and lighting systems, roof and walls insulation etc.Буде виконано комплексну термомодернізацію дитячого садочка: заміну вікон та дверей, модернізація системи опалення та освітлення, утеплення перекриття даху та стін і т.д.
  • An educational campaign will be conducted in the kindergarten that will enhance the level of knowledge of the personnel, and also children and parents of rational energy consumption. Behavioral changes that will take place will foster more effective energy consumption in the kindergarten building and at home. 
  • In 10 biggest energy consumers - budgetary institutions of Myrhorod city equipment for automatic online-monitoring of energy resources consumption will be installed. 
  • A large-scale informational campaign will be conducted for the heating district residents, the aim of which will be spreading information about the Project, motivating the heating district residents to use energy in their dwellings rationally, to create housing cooperatives and to implement energy efficiency measures.

Project implementation terms: 1.03.2018 - 31.05.2021.
