Montenegro – Energy Efficiency Project (MEEP), implemented from February 2009 until December 2014, was the first one in the country of its kind and it covered six hospitals, eight schools and a students’ dormitory, the Ministry of Health said. Government of Montenegro borrowed EUR 6.5 million from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) to finance the endeavour, the report said. Works in health facilities were financed by EUR 2.5 million, and Ministry of Health was the institution responsible, with help from the Directorate for Energy Efficiency.

The MEEP’s implementation results, including energy savings and improvement of conditions for patients and workers, influenced the state government to take a new loan of EUR 5 million, so the programme was extended in 2013 as MEEP Additional Financing (AF). The new funds will be used for measures of upgrading energy properties of 12 to 14 health facilities, the report said. MEEP AF’s implementation started in April last year, and the project ends in March 2017, the ministry said.
