Transcarpathia changes approaches to heating and is preparing to switch to energy-saving technologies

On Tuesday, November 4, at the the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration, there was the first of the meetings on strategy of transition to alternative energy technology in heating. An effective energy conservation program is to be developed in the region.

As previously reported, on the initiative of the Head of the Regional State Administration Vasyl Hubal, Transcarpathia is to switch to alternative heating throughout the public sector by October 1, 2015, and thus to "get off the gas needle."

Opening the meeting with representatives of local authorities, the head of the RSA Vasyl Hubal said, "I called you to consult how to minimize gas consumption in institutions of the region. I suggest you to prepare a program of transition to alternative fuels. Those are not only wood, wood chips, sawdust, pellets or coal, etc., it is also electricity and other types."

The Director of Housing, Construction and Infrastructure Department Vasyl Pryhara informed that transition to energy saving is taking place in two key areas: through up-to-date cost-effective equipment and through replacement of gas boilers with alternative ones.

He said that it is planned to convert 28 boiler houses in public institutions to alternative fuels (firewood and pellets) at the expense of the subvention from the state budget (about 14.6 million hryvnias). 17 projects are ready for implementation.

Vasyl Pryhara also notes that electrical technologies have good prospects too. And he drew attention to the need for insulation of facades, attics, and so on, which would reduce the need for heating and save energy.

He suggests to arrange monitoring in social institutions with subsequent analysis of the prospects for power saving in order to approach the development of an appropriate regional program more specifically.

The head of the RSA also said that it is necessary to pay attention to the private sector too. There is a program of compensation for replacement of boilers with energy-saving technologies through the Oshchadbank: "We must ensure that people know about it and use this opportunity" - Vasyl Hubal said.

This was only the first meeting, which set the basic, strategic objectives. Also, the regional state administration is waiting for proposals from private enterprises, foreign partners and private sector initiatives. The head of the RSA urged everyone to join efforts and to begin the hard work to change the energy sector of the region.

жечь лес - это не выход, а уничтожение планеты. Другое дело - отходы мебельной промышленности и сельского хозяйства - такой опыт уже имеется, и довольно успешный - и дёшево, и экологично.Пора, пора включать мозг!

"И в печках стал гореть Ереван… За «темные годы» в ереванских квартирах дотла сгорели леса с холмов, окружающих город, парки, скверы, аллеи на улицах, фруктовые сады… Все на свете классифицировалось тогда только по одному признаку — горит или нет. Сгорели все перила, двери, окна и оконные рамы подъездов зданий. Горели мебель, паркет, детские кубики, обувь, журналы, книги… Великолепно горели издания основоположников марксизма-ленинизма и материалы съездов КПСС. Ленин вновь стал актуален — пары-тройки томов с мыслями большевистского вождя хватало на разогрев супа. Дровяные печки провели идеологическую чистку ереванских домашних библиотек, оставив лишь то, что было действительно дорого сердцу."
Нам лучше - у нас горы с остатками лесов рядом)
