Rusland, Mokshino

The assignment

Commissioned by the EVD (part of the Ministry of Economic Affairs) and, ZON Energie supported local authorities in Russia to realize energy saving project in public buildings. Objective that was set is to consume 40% less energy by 2020. There were five pilot projects selected, including a school in Mokshino that was addressed with expertise from ZON Energie. In the summer of 2011, the school is completely renovated.


The approach

First objective was to minimize energy use. This was achieved with wall, floor and roof insulation, new windows, doors and windows, CO2 controlled ventilation with heat recovery. Second goal was to apply a modern, controllable heating system, new electrical installations with energy efficient lighting and new kitchen appliances.


The renovation of the building originally constructed in 1964 did not only mean a totally different look, but also made it usable for the next 20 to 30 years.
