Rarely used but incredibly energy-efficient solutions

The installation of a solar system and a ventilation system with a heat recovery unit allowed, the house of the Ukrainian individual homeowner, Mr Tril to use renewable energy sources, thereby contributing to the ecology of our planet.

The House is located in Khodosivka, Kyiv region, Ukraine. The building was built in 2018 and has 2 floors with a total area of 320 m2. The main goal of the owner was to construct a modern house based on new technologies embodying high energy efficiency and environmental friendliness.

In order to finance the project, Mr Tril received a loan from OTP Bank in the amount of around UAH 95,000 (equivalent to €3,048) under the EBRD’s IQ Energy programme. The loan supported the installation of a vacuum solar collector, U-pipe type with antireflection plasma coating, the financing also extended to additional materials and installation work.

IQ Energy team performed the project feasibility analysis by reviewing the application, confirmed that the project is eligible and in line with program requirements. Once the equipment was installed, the IQ Energy team verified the quality of installations.

Thanks to the project, the house is supplied with practically free hot water, which can be used both for domestic purposes and for heating. Renewable energy sources allow you to experience a significant economic effect, with a significant amount of use.

Mr Tril individual homeowner said: “Participation in the IQ energy program made it possible to implement the project using more energy-efficient equipment, which in turn brought a more significant result.”

IQ Energy was developed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and is supported by the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership Fund (E5P)  and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
