As a second step in the implementation of the 2020 Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP), Sector 1 in the city of Bucharest is continuing its energy efficiency program for apartment blocks with the replacement of energy inefficient elevators for thermally rehabilitated buildings.
The Bucharest Sector 1 Local Council has approved an investment sub-program for the upgrading of 901 elevators in thermal rehabilitation blocks as a measure to improve energy efficiency. The project is scheduled to start in early 2019 and according to the technical and economic indicators, the total value of the investment, including VAT, is estimated at 107.8 million lei, out of which 17 million lei is the amount allocated for construction and assembly works. A reduction of up to 40% of primary energy consumption is predicted. The expected execution time is 30 months.
