ENERGY GLOBE Award for Habitat Macedonia

The Austrian Energy Globe Foundation recognized internationally the ten-year involvement of Habitat Macedonia in the energy efficiency sector by awarding the organisation with the Energy Globe Award for the project: Energy-efficient homes for low-income families, initially started by Habitat Macedonia in 2009.
At the ceremony attended by Deputy Prime Minister Kocho Angjushev and an Austrian business delegation visiting Macedonia, the award was presented by the merchant attaché to the Austrian Embassy Marlen Burgstaler giving the award on behalf of the Energy Globe Foundation and their partner – the Austrian Chamber of Commerce.
Receiving the award, the national director of Habitat Macedonia Zoran Kostov pointed out that the main achievements of the awarded project include energy efficient reconstructions of more than 60 collective residential buildings in Macedonia with over 1900 apartments, whereby total annual energy savings of 7910 MWh and annual carbon dioxide emissions reductions of 3670 tonnes. This is a great investment potential for the Macedonian housing stock, which is estimated at more than 500 million euros.
