The Montenegrin Ministry of the Economy has secured almost EUR 850,000 to improve the energy efficiency of five local health care institutions, the ministry said in a statement. A total of EUR 846,000 will be invested in five local health care center buildings as part of the project titled Energy Efficiency in Montenegro.

Work on the health care institutions in Nikšić, Kolašin Andrijevica Petnjica and Murino have already been started and are due to be completed by the end of next August.

The total value of the work being done this year stands at EUR 725,000 while the work completed last year on thermal and electrical isolation cost EUR 121,000.

All the work is aimed at improving the energy characteristics of the buildings housing the local health care centers. The ministry intends to have the buildings fully energy efficient with much better conditions inside for both patients and medical staff.

The Montenegrin government launched the Montenegro Energy Efficiency Programme (MEEP) project in 2009 and has done energy efficiency upgrades on 11 health care, eight educational institutions and 1 student campus dormitory. The total value of that work was around 8.7 million Euro, the statement said.

The MEEP project is intended to increase energy efficiency and the work done included replacing windows and doors, installing outer heat isolation, improving lighting, upgrading or replacing heating boilers and modernizing heating systems as well as upgrading hot water systems.

The Montenegrin government is financing the project to improve conditions in public facilities with a loan of EUR 11.5 million taken from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

The government has shared the responsibility in implementing the project between the Health Ministry which is charged with taking care of work on its facilities and the Education Ministry which is in charge of its facilities with the Directorate for Energy Efficiency in the Ministry of the Economy coordinating the efforts.

The energy efficiency project is due to be completed by March 2018.
