Project’s site

Project goal is the public outreach (incl. school students, their parents and friends) regarding housing and communal knowledge and energy saving skills. The educational process is based on the free online distance-learning program (DLP), that ensures unlimited coverage regardless of participant’s location, 24/7 free access to the online program enabling users to study at convenient time, opportunity to use it for inclusive education, relevant information materials due to systematic updates according to legal amendments, changes in tariff policy and social safety net.


The Project comprises three components aimed at (1) education, (2) information and (3) capacity building of EE stakeholders. 

Within the educational component, all interested Ukrainian schools (regardless of their location) may choose the elective course “Energy supply and energy saving 101” (for the 6th-8th grades) and/or extracurricular course “ABC of housing and communal management” (for the 9th-11th grades), and/or the elective course “My EE house” (for the 4th grade). Information component covers public outreach on energy saving, housing and communal reform and key news, events and achievements of the Project in printed and online media, and social networks, public outreach activities carried out by students themselves within various Project contests and events, production of the information TV-programs and their broadcast at the regional and local channels in participant cities. The capacity building of EE stakeholders is aimed at ensuring the max efficiency of investment allocated by the local authorities for energy saving in state-owned buildings and the attraction of external investment to implement EE measures in state-owned and residential buildings.
