Gevgelija – energy efficient municipality
Gevgelija – energy efficient municipality
The Municipality of Gevgelija is among the first in the country that has adopted a Program for Energy Efficiency for the period 2007-2010. The Program envisioned replacement of the existing mercury lights bulbs with Energy efficient ones (the street lighting in 16 villages of the municipality has 93 % mercury bulbs). In accordance with this document as well as with the Local Environmental Action Plan (LEAP) and Strategy for Sustainable development of the Municipality of Gevgelija 2008-2011, the Regional Center for Sustainable Development and the Municipality entered into strategic partnership and signed a Memorandum for cooperation. They were determined to decrease CO2 by reducing consumption of energy and saving of energy through replacing mercury light bulbs (from the urban lighting) with energy efficient light bulbs. The following project activities were organized:
Procurement and Installment of 400 energy-efficient street light bulbs in the region of the Municipality of Gevgelija,
Theoretical and practical training on energy efficiency and climate change,
Media promotion of the project activities through means for public information,
Project presentation in the neighboring Municipalities of Dojran, Valandovo and Bogdanci.

The project is replication of the already realized projects by the GEF SGP Macedonia.
