First step towards the improvement of energy efficiency is the analysis of the residential buildings and defining which measures are needed. Head of the Municipality of Pirot Vladan Vasić signed a memorandum of understanding with Renate Schindlbeck, team leader of GIZ’s project Energy Efficiency in Buildings. The document marked the beginning of cooperation towards the development of a local action plan.

Pirot joined the first municipalities in Serbia – Vrbas, Ivanjica and Sokobanja, which will have a register of residential facilities and will be able to make serious plans for rehabilitation, GIZ said. Local action plans will be a good basis for the development of rehabilitation programmes, but also for applications with available donor and national funds, Schindlbeck said. She stressed the memorandum predicts experts will be hired, and that GIZ will cooperate with local professionals. The plan is to complete the municipality’s action plan by May of next year.
