Construction companies in Moldova turn to energy efficiency measures

LLC Marsharcon, a developer of buildings and supplier of construction materials, has recently completed the construction of a 90-apartment building in Balti, Moldova. The initial design of the building, fully compliant with the national regulation, included less energy efficient building envelope and technologies.

The MoREEFF experts offered extensive advice to the company on improvement of energy performance of the building and suggested a long list of measures, leading to lower energy bills and improved living conditions.
 
The company agreed to the experts’ advice and applied to MoREEFF for financing of these improvements.
 
The €372,987 investment allowed to install high performance PVC windows with 70 mm profile frame and double glazing with low-E glass, 100 mm thermal insulation of walls and 80 mm thermal insulation of floors, gas boilers with 93% efficiency rate, room thermostats and thermostatic radiator valves.
 
The residents will feel the result of the investment immediately through the reduced energy bill and improved living conditions. “The new homeowners will benefit from a more comfortable, attractive and cost efficient living environment for many years to come,” says Mr Marcoci, director  of the construction company.
 
The construction company highly appreciated the advisory package from MoREEFF, which enabled these wise and future oriented improvements. This way, the EBRD and MoREEFF support implementation of energy efficiency projects by the residential sector – one of the largest energy consumers in the country. Together, the residential, private, and public sectors can make a change in the energy consumption patterns and contribute to environmental protection.
