Here R&D and educational programs will be provided for encouragement and promotion of sustainable (energy) development. Reconstruction includes insulation of walls with reed plates and clay rough-cast, attics of renewable material such as straw for insulation, rainwater collection, 30 m2 of solar collectors, 3.150 kWp PV power system, heat pump, heating and cooling system with heat recovery, and a mini-district heating system based on biomass boilers for meeting heating needs of the nearby kindergarten, post office, church, priest’s house and parish house.
