MDRC initiates public discussion on policy proposals "Ensuring energy efficiency in buildings of primary and secondary education institutions"

Energy efficiency (EE) has become a key concern globally. This refers to the many ways you can get the same benefit (lighting, heating, ventilation, hot water, etc..) Using less energy. While reducing energy demand is made saving money, resources, and reducing emissions into the environment.

Situation in the Republic of Moldova sectorulenergetic continues to be a complex and tense as 97% dependence on imported energy resources from outside the continuous growth of energy prices, increased energy intensity in excess of three times that of EU countries, insufficient their capacity to generate energy, decreased ability to pay of consumers and unable to cope with rising prices, etc..

Situation, in fact, has repercussions both on the private sector, as well as the public sector in the country, affecting their budgets.

In general, energy consumption in schools in Moldova was confirmed to be quite high, being about 200-240 kWh / m² per year. In France since 2001, according to the report "Passive Cooling of Building", the annual energy consumption was 147 cities and 175 kWh / m² in rural communities. As a result of community efforts and national governments in the EU, the situation to improve in recent years. In Italy more and more schools are meeting with consumption of 100 kWh / m² / year, while in Greece they are cases of 93 kWh / m² / year. In Bulgaria some schools consume up to 153 kWh / m² / year and Ireland recorded a huge gap energy consumption in schools - 50-200 kWh / m² / year.

Increase heat tariffs has caused an increasing share of energy expenditure from the budgets of educational institutions. Thus, the share of energy expenditures in the budgets of primary schools and those in secondary education in 2010 reached 38.5% of total current expenditures.

Public policy objectives:
1. In 80% of primary and secondary institutions winter minimum temperature in the classroom will be at least 200 C by the end of 2015.
2. Reducing energy consumption cu7 current percentage points in primary and secondary schools since cu2017.
3. Energy consumption in 30% of primary and secondary schools by the end of 2020 will be 104 kWh/m2/year.
