RESIDENTIAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Residential 1 compressedEligible projects within the residential sector are complex, major thermal rehabilitation projects of blocks of flats consisting of the thermal insulation of the building envelope (external walls, roofs, basements) along with other measures such as:

 

  • Highly efficient ventilation with heat recovery
  • Urban renewable energy systems such as solar boilers, heat pumps, building integrated photovoltaic panels, biomass boilers, geothermal and urban wind turbines
  • Efficient boilers, micro-cogeneration
  • Heat substations and heat meters
  • Balancing of heat systems
  • Individual heat consumption measurement systems
  • New, energy efficient  windows (in all apartments of the building)
  • New, energy efficient radiators and other space heating units
  • Insulation of heat and hot water distribution networks

 

Buildings heated by (biomass-based) district heating are also eligible.

The minimum level of energy savings to be achieved is 30% of the total delivered energy assessed as the difference before and after the rehabilitation.

Reporting to SIEA

Residential EE projects are required to report their energy consumption by source on an annual basis to the Slovak Innovation and Energy Agency (SIEA) for a period of 5 years after project completion. The reporting template is available here. Borrowers will be assisted to comply with this procedure.
