Two public buildings were subjects of retrofitting. The Mora Cultural Centre, Elementary School and Dormitory used to spend 82% of its annual budget on heating (natural gas) due to extremely poor qualities of the external walls and windows. Similar figures applied to the Kindergarten and Day-care Centre Complex, too.
During 2012 all the planned construction works on the target buildings have been concluded and commissioned. Thermal insulation was applied on the buildings’ facades and all the doors and windows had been replaced. In addition solar thermal collectors were installed on the rooftops of both buildings for domestic hot water generation purposes. After the installation thorough function tests have been conducted for quality control. Now the local, building-scale DHW demand is covered by these solar thermal panels.
