Demonstration of energy efficiency improvement practices and use of renewable energy sources in a pilot kindergarten building of Sevkar community of Tavush region
Demonstration of energy efficiency improvement practices and use of renewable energy sources in a pilot kindergarten building of Sevkar community of Tavush region
The project goal is to decrease the energy consumption in the buildings of educational sector through application of energy efficient (EE) techniques and use of renewable energy sources (RES). The project plans to incorporate installation of alternative energy (solar) heating and energy efficient appliances into the planned reconstruction works at the pilot kindergarten.
The project will result in increased energy efficiency of the building, reduced natural gas consumption, thus decreasing carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.
In the meantime, cost savings from reduced energy (electricity and natural gas) consumption will contribute to the improvement of the community livelihood. In parallel, the project will strengthen the capacity of local authorities, educational institutions and other organizations involved in the educational sector.

Project Characteristics and Results
Notable Community Participation
In-kind contribution to the project from local authorities and community members is one of the key criteria for selection of the pilot kindergarten 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.
Gender Focus
Over 50% of Sevkar project beneficiaries and stakeholders are women. In particular, the tobacco farmers/curers (mostly women) will benefit by using the produced hot water for taking showers on daily basis. Also, women constitute over 90% of the pre-school education staff.
