Improving the Energy Efficiency in Municipality of Vrapchishte
Improving the Energy Efficiency in Municipality of Vrapchishte
Energy costs represent a large part of the municipal budget of Vrapchiste. Complete or partial implementation of energy efficiency measures will significantly reduce energy consumption and costs; while at the same time will reduce the transmission of CO2 in the air.
As one of the current problems that contribute to inefficient use of energy is using outdated models of lighting fixtures and too many lightning places in these municipalities. By replacing light fixtures with energy-saving light bulbs will contribute to a reduction in electricity consumption and therefore to reduce the emission of CO2 emission in the atmosphere.
On the other hand, the project will directly contribute to creating sustainable system energy efficiency through the development of a strategy involved municipality, which is their legal obligation. During the preparation of the strategy will be used the experience of municipalities that already have produced such a strategy (Vrapciste), and in relation to other activities will be used the experience of previous SGP grantees that have implemented projects in this area.

The aim of the project is to create conditions for reducing climate change in the rural municipalities of Polog - Municipality Vrapchishte through improved energy efficiency in street lighting, awareness raising and capacity building of stakeholders involved in issues related to energy efficiency.
Specific objectives:
Target 1: Reduce power consumption by applying the principles of energy efficiency by replacing lighting fixtures;

Target 2: Raising awareness on climate change, energy savings and the advantage of using renewable energy sources, through educational workshops and printed materials;

Project Characteristics and Results
Notable Community Participation
April 22 Earth Day was for the first celebrated in the Municipality Vrapciste. In the center of the municipality, and in the school yard the following activities were organised: sharing information leaflets on energy efficiency, planting flowers and trees and musical performance. The event was attended by over 500 citizens of the Municipality Vrapciste and it included 70 students who generously contributed to the implementation of this action. Organized training for 15 employees of the municipal administration to use the system to monitor the energy efficiency of municipal ExCITE, created by UNDP. Training topics include: responsibilities of the municipality in the sector of energy efficiency; ways to deliver the optimal measures to reduce energy consumption; how to measure financial savings; opportunities for creating new jobs; increasing of product competitiveness and reduction of environmental pollution. Municipality of Vrapciste started actively using the software ExCITE in January 2015
