Energy Efficient City District, Lviv

As of: January 2020

Objective and activities

The project seeks to develop a showcase model for a sustainable, low-carbon and cost efficient energy system in the city district of Sichiv in Lviv. It complements an investment programme by EBRD through the implementation of measures that improve the energy efficiency on the consumer side whereas the EBRD modernizes the district’s heating facilities and network. The whole building stock, social structure and energy consumption of the district will be analysed, saving and mitigation potential will be assessed, an implementation program conceptualized and an energy and GHG monitoring system established. This energy efficient district should serve as model for other cities of the region and the country.
