Capacity building of Shirak marz communities for improving the energy efficiency of residential buildings through demonstration of energy efficiency improvement and renewable energy sources use practices in a pilot multi-apartment residential building
Capacity building of Shirak marz communities for improving the energy efficiency of residential buildings through demonstration of energy efficiency improvement and renewable energy sources use practices in a pilot multi-apartment residential building
The project goal is to enhance capacities of local communities and management bodies of multi-apartment buildings of the Shirak region through demonstration of energy efficiency improvement and introducing renewable energy use practices in a pilot multi-apartment residential building as well training of modern and affordable energy efficiency technologies of buildings, software provision.
The project plans to implement construction, renovation and insulation works, particularly installation of doors and windows of building entrances and stairwells, lighting system for the stairwells and also installation of solar hot water panels for heating one of the stairwells of the multi-apartment residential building. All the works are aimed to increasing of building’s energy efficiency.
The project will result in increased energy efficiency of a pilot multi-apartment residential building; reduction of use of natural gas, thus reducing carbon dioxide emissions from gas stoves/heaters into the atmosphere. In the meantime, the reduced cost of energy consumption will add to households income. Also, the project will strengthen the capacity of local authorities and CBOs (e.g. condominiums).

Project Characteristics and Results
Notable Community Participation
Monetary and in-kind contribution to the project from residents (community members) is one of the key criteria set for selection of the pilot building for the EE and RES demonstration activities. Furthermore, it is envisaged that the community members will be actively involved in the project implementation process and monitoring and evaluation activities as well.
Promoting Public Awareness of Global Environment
Press releases for mass media to be produced by the project will increase environmental awareness and sensitivity of the large public and information dissemination on project results. Moreover, project materials and activities such as: training and information, education, consulting are intended to increase awareness of certain target groups (e.g. population of multi-apartment buildings, condominium members, staffs of local governments and management bodies of multi-apartment buildings) on local and global climate change issues.
