The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) with the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership Fund have provided EUR 12.5 million for energy-efficient modernization of schools and kindergartens in Dnipro.
“The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, with which Dnipro is successfully cooperating in the construction of the subway and renovation of rolling stock, together with the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership Fund, provided EUR 12.5 million to the city for the energy-efficient renovation of 84 schools and kindergartens,” Dnipro Mayor Borys Filatov said in the Facebook social network.
According to him, modernization works include insulation of facades and roofs, replacement of windows, as well as the placement of heat points, which reduce heat loss in the winter period by half.
