The purpose of this Internship is to provide assistance to UNDP Energy Portfolio related to the implementation of Energy Management Systems in Municipalities throughout Serbia.
Objective of this internship is to contribute to the effective implementation of activities related to Energy Management Systems in Municipalities throughout Serbia.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), acting as an implementing agency of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), provided assistance to the Republic of Serbia - Ministry of Mining and Energy (MoME), in the preparation of the full-sized GEF Project titled “Removing Barriers to Promote and Support Energy Management Systems in Municipalities (EMS) throughout Serbia” (EE Project).
With 2.3 m US$ from the GEF, the EE Project will have a total volume of 22 m US$. Co-financing will be provided by Serbian institutions, JICA and KfW.
The objective of EE Project is to introduce and support the implementation of municipal Energy Management Systems (EMS), including Energy Management Information Systems (EMIS), throughout Serbia to increase the EE investments in public buildings and municipal services and to facilitate their more energy efficient operation in general. EE Project is fully in line with the provisions of the Law on Efficient Use of Energy which stipulates establishing of an EMS in Serbian municipalities and therefore will contribute its implementation. EMIS was developed by the UNDP Energy Efficiency Project in Croatia with the purpose of monitoring, analyzing and reporting on energy and water consumption in public buildings. In that respect, EMIS is a powerful tool for energy management, necessary for implementation of the Law. While the minimum project target by the end of the project is to have at least 30 Serbian municipalities to formally adopt and start the implementation of EMS and EMIS, the EE Project also seeks to facilitate their replication in other Serbian municipalities. Complementary activities will include preparation of EE projects in public buildings (technical identification, energy audits, elaboration of investment packages, etc.) along with implementation of 0.5 mill US$ grant for 10 EE demonstration projects in public buildings including energy efficiency certification of buildings in accordance with the Law on Planning and Construction. Further to that, EE Project will include extensive capacity building of municipalities as well as advocacy in field of EE. In addition to said activities the EE Project will include further development of EMIS and development of auxiliary software tools of less complexity aimed at specific tasks of municipal energy management.
