In Kraljevo, contracts were signed with 67 local governments, in which the implementation of energy efficiency improvement projects begins. State Secretary at the Ministry of Mining and Energy, Zoran Lakićević, says that they will enable the improvement of energy efficiency in 10,000 households in Serbia.

He said that the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Mining and Energy, Zorana Mihajlović, signed agreements which envisage the replacement of doors and windows, external insulation of houses and housing units and the change of heating boilers worth one billion dinars.

From August, citizens will be able to apply for allocated funds, while in July an invitation will be issued for companies that will perform works. – Lakicevic said for RTS.

As the Ministry announced, Lakićević said that there is a rulebook on the ranking of citizens regarding the criteria that citizens must meet when applying for public calls. He specified that the Ministry of Mining and Energy submitted to the local self-governments a rulebook for ranking citizens registered for public calls and companies that will perform the works.

The quality of existing carpentry will be a crucial factor on the basis of which citizens can receive financial incentives for energy efficiency. Preference will be given to those who have poorer carpentry and single windows – said Lakićević.

Another important criterion, as he said, will be the number of residents living in the household, so that, he adds, where there is a larger number of residents in the same residential area, those citizens will have an advantage.

Citizens will submit to the local self-governments a form with a pro forma invoice of the company from the list of contractors, which will show how much the works will cost.

– After submitting the form, the commissions will go out on the field and evaluate the works. If everything is in order, the ranking list will be determined – said Lakićević.

He mentioned that the Ministry of Mining and Energy and local self-government provide 50 percent of the costs, while the other half is financed by the citizens themselves.

The State Secretary pointed out that the same criteria apply to buildings that will have to obtain the consent of the housing community, ie half of the tenants, if they want to apply for a public invitation.

He added that a decision of the housing community is not needed if the citizens want to make only windows in their apartments.
