Energy efficiency program in public buildings, Montenegro

Energy efficiency program in public buildings, Montenegro
For upgrading the energy efficiency of public buildings and supported by a loan from the German KfW bank, public buildings, mostly schools but including preschool facilities and a student dormitory, were rehabilitated with regard to their energy parameters together with any necessary structural measures. Under a contract from KfW, Fichtner first conducted an appraisal of the existing situation during which the facilities were assessed and a plan of action for upgrading energy efficiency was worked out. As a follow-up, Fichtner oversaw implementation of the measures.
