EU GPP case study: Construction of an energy-efficient kindergarten, Slovenia
Sixteen years ago, it was decided that appropriate measures would be taken to ensure that The Municipality of Preddvor, located in the north-western Alpine part of Slovenia, would become as energy independent as possible. As a result, Preddvor’s CO 2 emissions have decreased by nearly 40%. In order to take concrete steps towards energy self sufficiency, in May 2009 the Municipal Council made a decision to invest in a low-energy kindergarten facility. In November 2012, the first passive wooden kindergarten in Slovenia received permission for use. The new building received the Gold medal for “Most energy efficient public building” (awarded by EKO Fund, International Craft fair of Celje and My home edition).
