The Head of the Russian Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities, Mikhail Menn, approved a list of measures intended to ensure energy efficiency of high-rise buildings.

As Construction.RU was told by the press office of the Ministry, these aspects of the overhaul program were discussed by the participants of a meeting with regional operators that was held recently in Sevastopol.

The decree signed by the Minister approves proposals for enhancing energy efficiency, as well as offers a recommended “menu” of the relative measures to be taken within overhaul for owners’ approval.

The “menu” contains types of works, their projected energy efficiency, economic value and expenditure.

Judging by the experience of Russian regions, voiced by speakers representing regional operators from the Belgorod and Rostov regions, a thermal isolation of loft can lead to 10% savings in payment for heat, while insulation of walls can result in savings of up to 30%.

With an integrated approach the level of savings increases.

“The developed document will help owners to make a right choice in favour of a particular measure, as well as to evaluate its performance. The houses, included in short-term programs in 2017, will be able to benefit from “energy efficient menu”, which envisages selecting the most efficient measures with savings’ calculation”, - deputy director of the Department of Housing, Utilities and Amenities, Elena Solntseva, said at the meeting.
