One-day at a Kindergarten

  •  Date: 08 June 2018
     Time : 11h00
  •  Location: Yerevan, Armenia

As part of the European Union Sustainable Energy week 2018 in Armenia, the European Investment Bank (EIB) in association with the Municipality of Yerevan and the European Union Delegation to Armenia as main contributor of the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environmental Partnership Fund, (E5P Fund) will co-host an awareness-raising event about the Yerevan Energy Efficiency project. The event will also witness the signing of an E5P Grant Agreement in support of the EIB investment for energy efficiency in public buildings in Yerevan.

The event will take place on 8th June 2018 at 11.00 in a kindergarten that will be renovated under the project. It will consist of the presentation of the project, which foresees that over 140 kindergartens will benefit from a mix of deep renovations, such as comprehensive energy efficiency retrofitting and refurbishment of the building envelope as well as seismic resilience measures. In parallel, a young public will receive a training on how to save energy in every-day life.

The event will also be combined with the signing of the E5P Grant Agreement for EUR 5 million to support the Municipality of Yerevan in their efforts to introduce advanced energy efficiency technologies. The proposed E5P grant of EUR 5m will thus make affordable among others the implementation of the refurbishments and renewable energy measures as well as carry positive social and environmental benefits.
