Construction and operation of a pilot model of solar hot water system in Gyumri special school #3 for children with mental disabilities
The project aims to promote the use of innovative low-carbon technology through construction and operation of a pilot solar thermal energy system in Gyumri special school #3 for children with mental disabilities and knowledge transfer throughout communities with solar energy potential. The school accommodates 122 children and has 65 staff members. Being a boarding institution, the school has a considerable demand of hot water all the year round for food-making and sanitary purposes.
As a result of application of solar hot water system in the school, daily use of at least 30 m3 of natural gas will reduce which will ensure monetary saving of US$ 5,500 to the school and prevent 25 tones of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere yearly.
As part of capacity development, the project envisages preparation of training-demonstration working models of a typical solar thermal system, which will be distributed among educational institutions and resource centers to use as a practical training tool.

Project Characteristics and Results
Emphasis on Sustainable Livelihoods
As a result of application of solar hot water system in the school, daily use of at least 30 m3 of natural gas will reduce which will ensure monetary saving of US$ 5,500 yearly. Money saved will be directed to solve other essential needs of the school.
Inovative Financial Mechanisms
Dissemination of project economic benefits to be produced by the projects will serve as an incentive for soft-term loans with high rate of return to the investments made over the long period of time. This approach is viable especially in light of expected increase of natural gas price.
