Derventa Municipality Saves Money and Protects Environment
“Thanks to the simple yet affordable measures which save environment, the municipal authorities will be able to use saved money and invest it where most needed. It is our pleasure to see another municipality succeeding in significant energy and money savings, thanks to energy efficiency measures. Our Programme is implementing 28 energy efficiency projects worth more than 3 million US dollars countrywide. We developed 37 Local Environmental Action Plans and 5 Sustainable Energy Action Plans”, said Siniša Rodić, National Programme Manager/Coordinator.
UN Programme Environment and Climate Change assisted municipality in making its Local Environmental Action Plan that identified the mentioned energy efficiency project as one of the priorities. The decrease of emission of the CO2 by 26 tons per annum will be another positive outcome of the project, which has an overarching goal to reduce fossil fuel-based energy in Derventa by 5% within next 5 years. The energy consumption survey was produced for a total of 10 public buildings in Derventa Municipality.
The project was implemented by the Center for Research and Development, Tuzla.
