Representatives of Chernivtsi city administration visited Zhytomyr at the end of September to learn about the city's experience in the field of improving energy efficiency and energy consumption management and monitoring, including with EU support.
This exchange of experience is useful in the light of the start of an EU-supported Covenant of Mayors Demonstration Project in Chernivtsi, EU Neighbours reported.
The city plans to upgrade its public lighting with energy-efficient replacements. LED lamps will be installed and more than 145 km of electricity cables will be replaced. Additionally, six solar-powered lighting systems will be built to light up three children's playgrounds. It is expected that the city will reduce its CO2 emissions and will save electricity and money on public lighting.
