Renewable Energy Systems in 9 Municipialities of the Swietokrzyskie Voivodship
This project is situated in the Swietokrzyskie Voivodship in Southern Poland. The air pollution and emission levels in in this region are substantially higher than in Western European countries. The 9 municipalities participating in this project are located close to Natura 2000 areas, thus the high air pollution jeopardizes the vulnerable fauna and flora of this protective area. Consequently, this project aims at reducing emissions of greenhouse gases in the region.

The direct beneficiaries are carefully selected public institutions and private households located in 9 municipalities of the Swietokrzyskie region. They will not only benefit from reduced emissions and better air quality, but also from a higher disposable income as less conventional fuel needs to be purchased. Indirect beneficiaries are the approximately 140'000 inhabitants of the 9 municipalities as well as visitors due to reduced emission and better air quality.
The project's overall objective is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by installing solar collectors providing energy for hot water purposes on 23 public buildings and around 4'000 private households. Furthermore, a photovoltaic system for the lighting of a public park will be installed to serve as a demonstration object. The project contributes to the implementation of the Polish government's energy policy (particularly with regard to increasing the share of renewable energy in the national energy balance and reducing emissions).
The goal of the project is to improve health and living conditions for the whole population in the covered region and to improve environmental conditions, particularly with regard to air quality, in the covered region.
