Our Energy Efficiency Experience
Energy Efficiency in public buildings in Serbia
Serbia, KfW Development Bank
m4h is contributing to the enhancement of Serbia’s energy sustainability by undertaking a comprehensive refurbishment of the VMA Hospital in Belgrade. The project is centered on reducing energy consumption and introducing renewable energy solutions, aligning with Serbia’s convergence with the European Union.
Key areas of intervention include structural upgrades, improvements in user comfort, energy efficiency enhancements, and specific hospital-related improvements. The project addresses these issues while ensuring the hospital’s continuous operation, integrating outdated technical systems, adhering to security protocols, and balancing international and local regulations.
The VMA Hospital’s transformation is not only expected to improve healthcare services but also significantly reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally responsible energy supply in Serbia.
Upgrade of perinatal services in Osh and Talas Oblast
Kyrgyzstan, Ministry of Health (MoH)
m4h collaborates with the Ministry of Health in the Kyrgyz Republic to enhance maternal and child health services in the Southern Regions and Talas Oblast. The project focuses on creating modern, patient-centric, and energy-efficient Perinatal Centers in Osh and Talas. This involves relocating the oblast maternity in Osh to a new facility, along with staff training, maintenance, and management improvements. In Talas, the project aims to establish a perinatal annex and enhance obstetric and neonatal services, emphasising compliance with energy-efficient and modern healthcare standards.
The project, supported by German Financial Cooperation (KfW), adheres to environmental and social requirements. m4h conducted due diligence, site investigations, and developed schematic designs for both projects. The next phase involves developing detailed designs and preparing for construction, ensuring energy efficiency is a central focus throughout the process.
