On November 21,  ARD representatives attended the forum for condominiums “Energy in the communities”, which was organized by the Regional Agency for Development and Investment (ARDI) with the support of GIZ GmbH.
Alexander Vytvytsky, the project manager on energy efficiency for Dnipro Development Agency presented to the representatives of region’s communities a program of activities aimed at thermo-modernization of housing and utilities sector in Dnipro and Dnipropetrovsk region. One of the central questions of this program is an energy audit of all facilities in housing and utilities sector. Only quality audit may help to address effectively all the current issues of energy efficiency.
Also, some practical steps were given to solve the issue of energy saving. These include simple things such as heating meters (It is hard to save heating energy that cannot be counted, in other words there is no baseline for savings), modernization of lighting and electricity metering, upgrading water pipes and water heating systems, insulation of front doors (entrance to the staircase), hall reconstructions, upgrading windows in common areas, insulation of attics, technical floors, roofs, sealing interpanel joints in pre-fabricated house insulation walls.
