Educational institutions should become an example of application energy efficient technologies. It was emphasized today during session of the Cabinet of Ukraine by Prime Minister Mykola Azarov.
«Losses of heat should be reduced to a minimum. It is necessary to warm buildings, establish modern systems thermoregulation of facilities maintained within day with different intensity, – Mykola Azarov noted. – We should modernize consistently boiler-houses which, especially in a countryside, already now it is possible to translate on alternative, more economic, than gas, energy sources».
The Prime Minister stressed that in this year more than 3 thousand school boilers have been repaired. And boiler-houses are translated on heating with biofuel only in 20 vocational technical schools.
