TheREEEPublic project is more strongly oriented towards improving the frameworkconditions for RE and EE. It promotes RE and EE in order to reduce the energycosts of public institutions and it will support decision-makers andadministrations at national, regional and district level.
Services provided included:
•Preparation of studies on issues of grid-connected renewable energies by demandof concerned stakeholders (Energy Commission - EC, Public Utilities RegulatoryCommission - PURC, MoE)
•Preparation of implementing rules and procedures for instruments implementingthe Renewable Energy Act (REA)
•Conducting demand driven capacity development (CD) activities for officers ofMoE, EC and PURC and other stakeholders on topics relevant to theimplementation of the REA (e.g. net metering, RE tenders, auctions, paradigmshift policies of Output-5k tasks )
•Development and implementation of a strategy for appraising and certifying thespecific energy consumption (SEC) of buildings.
•Development of a standard with minimum requirements as well as limitvalues/criteria for the classification of buildings into different EE classesfor selected building types
•Drafting a regulation for licensing and registration of energy performancecertificate issuers
•Drafting a regulation to make energy performance certification (EPC) anddisplay of the certificate mandatory for selected building categories
•Drafting of a 5-year Building Sustainable Energy Action Plan (BSEAP) for thenational initiative to promote EE and RE in public institutions.
•Establishment and support for a steering committee that oversees, coordinatesand guides in an effective and efficient manner the BSEAP drafting and itsfuture implementation
•Development of a communication strategy and an institutionalized MRV system formonitoring and reporting progress and impact of BSEAP implementation
•Implementation of energy audits in selected regions and districts
•Identification, planning and monitoring of the EE/RE measures in publicinstitutions implemented by the Project
•Co-financing of demonstration projects such as refurbishment of existingbuildings and design of new buildings; installation of renewable energy systemsfor self-sufficiency in electricity and hot water
•Dissemination of the results of EE/RE measures
•Information and advice campaigns on EE and RE for officers of publicinstitutions, and businesses in the regions and districts.
•Demand driven training of public and private sector professionals in EE subjectareas of interest for the building sector
•Training of EPC certifiers to appraise the SEC of buildings in support ofestablishing a national statistic about the energy performance of buildings andto improve decision making which buildings shall be selected for scaling-up SEretrofitting of buildings
