Network for Energy Efficiency in Belarus

The project targets at increasing awareness, knowledge and networking on energy efficiency and saving in the construction sector in Belarus. The main objective of the project is to increase capacity and create networks among construction related stakeholder (architects, engineers, etc…) to ensure that good-practice energy efficiency and saving measures are known and can be carried out. A thorough analysis of the situation, the development of a web-based information and networking platform, and the revision of curricula will contribute to reach this goal

Activities in the project

  • Collection of background information and discussion with local experts
  • Checking curricula of relevant study programmes (architecture, civil engineering), if relevant topics for energy efficient construction are covered
  • Elaboration of recommendations how energy efficiency can be enhanced in the building sector
  • Development of a website about energy efficiency in the building sector for Belaurs (in Russian)
