Municipality of Kumanovo, Macedonia’s third-largest town, invests in improving energy efficiency in residential buildings in cooperation with Habitat for Humanity, portal said. The local self-government called for applications for reconstruction from tenants’ councils.

The project is for complete overhaul, including a sophisticated façade and roof construction. Buildings in the central district have priority, the report said. In the process of ranking, applications will be selected based on criteria of location, percentage of tenants who agree to have windows replaced, and how old the object is and how worn the façade and the roof are.

The investment cycle is the result of cooperation of the city’s authority with the international organization. The local self-government covers 20% of the expenses, while Habitat secures a favourable loan for the rest.
