The school in Odessa Oblast is fully energy-efficient at the expense of the ESCO-mechanism

Odessa region is the first in the country to test the purchase of the energy service under conditions of in-depth partnership. At the moment a tender for the purchase of ESCO-services for the Savior district district school in Kontsebiv has been announced. In plans - not only to warm the facade and attic. In the future, the energy service company is invited to cooperate in the complex energy modernization of the building.

"The implementation of the ESCO-mechanism in the budget sphere began precisely with the Odessa region. In 2016, the first energy service contract with investors was signed for the Oschikovskaya school in the Savransky district. Today the region is again the first to join the search for ESCO-partners in terms of legislative innovations. After all, such measures can reduce the consumption of heat energy, on average, by 23%, "said Anton Shalyhaylo, Director of the Department of Housing and Communal Services and Energy Efficiency of the Odessa Regional State Administration.

It should be noted that in the format of in-depth partnership, the customer co-finances complex energy-efficient measures and compensates for their expenses at the expense of further energy saving. Thus, according to the terms of this tender, Savarsk district state administration will receive 71% of achieved savings, and ESCO-company will make up to 29%.

Recall that in Odesa oblast, thirty energy service contracts totaling more than UAH 26 million were concluded. At present, the Odessa region is among the three leaders among the regions in which energy services contracts were concluded with budget institutions.
