FOSTERING RES AWARENESS THROUGH SCHOOL PROGRAMMES

ALBANIA, KAMZA MUNICIPALITY

Awareness / Behavioural change / Social acceptance, Biomass / Bioenergy, Small scale RES demonstration

Overview

The pilot action targets to increase energy independence and behavioural change towards the reduction of energy consumption and GHG emissions, with a focus to biomass exploitation.

  

The action delivers:

  • an analysis of the fuelwood supply chain, processing and combustion to identify opportunities for increasing the efficiency of firewood use; 
  • a report studying the fuelwood demand in Albania and the feasibility of a biomass plant in Kamza Municipality;
  • the installation of a heating system with pellet boilers at the Kamza e Re Kindergarten in Kamza Municipality, and
  • training activities promoting the efficient use of biomass towards local stakeholders, municipality staff, school teachers and parents.

Macro objective:

  • Increase of energy from RES in the local energy mix
  • GHG emissions reduction by decreasing the use of fossil fuels for electricity production

Specific objectives:

  • Upgrading of existing heating systems in public buildings using biomass
  • Increase waste & organic residues recycling
  • Raise awareness on small- scale biomass plants, to push development at local level

Impacts to be achieved by 2030:

  • CO2 emissions saved/y:  169 t
  • Thermal energy generated from RES: 268,800 kWh/y
