Energy efficient municipality – part three
Energy efficient municipality – part three
It is the 21st century where man asks himself whether man can live forever by overcoming the problems of oil depletion and global environment, namely, whether man can obtain renewable energy in place of fossil fuel, and whether man can implement the priciples of energy efficiency and energy savings. This century asks man for the wisdom to the greatest extent ever. To overcome the problems, it is necessary to establish the energy system by the middle of this century where the renewable energy is a primary energy source and implement the principles of energy efficiency and energy savings in the every day living of the citizens.
Energy plays a crucial role in the creation and resolution of many of today’s political, economic and social issues.As the world continues to develop on the basis of traditional energy production methods (i.e. fossil fuels), poorer countries are finding it difficult to compete for these increasingly scarce resources Renewable energy has the potential to have a significant impact in reducing the energy strain. More and more countries are taking this into consideration and have developed, or are developing; plan to increase the portion of renewable energy used in everyday life. This shift in energy source extends from the level of an ordinary citizen to the highest level of the states.

Also municipalities in Macedonia can not relay any more on the government to pay the local expanses, now they have a new and very expansive obligation to manage and pay for there own energy consumption. Macedonia has a limited source of commercial energy recourse and in the future they have to relay on the imported energy. To take over the measures of energy efficiency it will alleviate the air pollution and the addiction of imported energy, it will increase the duration of domestic reserves and prolong the need of investments in a new energy infrastructure (which will use fossil full). Until now our experiences thru the realization of energy efficiency projects (for example insulation of buildings with silicon strips, exchanging the ordinary light bulbs with energy efficient light bulbs, etc.), as wall as promotion of renewable sources of energy (installation of solar systems, construction of solar systems on the Principe Do It Yourself) are very positive and they make us think to continue, as wall as expansion of this activities.
Encouraged by the success and experience gathered from the previous projects “Energy efficient municipality – Jegunovce and Shuto Orizari”, the executive board of NGO Proaktiva decided that the principals of sustainability (i.e. energy efficiency and renewable energy) can be implemented in another municipality in Macedonia. We have chosen the municipality of Gazi Baba because the municipality is part of the capital and on the other hand is one of the biggest municipalities in the country and as well we decided to continue the work in the Municipality of Gazi Baba.

Energy efficiency and utilization of local renewable energy resources has been indicated as a one of the priorities in the negotiations with the Municipalities
We decided that to achieve best results we have to make a necessary insulations and installations in the following buildings:
Municipality of Gazi Baba:
Regional Elementary School “Naum Ohridski” - Bulacani
Locall Elementary School “Naum Ohridski” - Cresevo
