Improving energy efficiency in public buildings in Uzbekistan
Eco Ltd supported the development of a project to increase energy efficiency in public buildings in Uzbekistan. The project task was to develop a project document (proposal) for funding by the Global Environmental Facility, and the proposal was approved in August 2009. Eco’s expert advised project management on appropriate experts and terms of reference, outreach to stakeholders in order to collect and incorporate findings, the design of effective project activities within a sustainable institutional framework, and the development of the results framework (logical framework or logframe) and appropriate indicators for monitoring.
The public buildings sector in Uzbekistan represents a unique opportunity to “build in” energy efficiency at the design stage. The population is growing, and the government is currently investing heavily in building new schools and hospitals and reconstructing existing facilities. The project focused on education and healthcare facilities, supporting improved building codes, training for architects and engineers in integrated building design, construction of efficient pilot buildings, and the introduction of an energy performance certification system. The project development process drew on traditional design practices, regional good practice in codes and certification, and global best practice in training for institutional arrangements and training to support energy management.
