Pilot Action in Slovenia - Music School Fran Korun Koželjski Velenje

he pilot action location in Velenje

The activities of  pilot action to improve energy efficiency are implemented in the public building Music school Fran Korun Koželjski Velenje built in 1987 (newer part of building built in 1998). Municipality of Velenje is the owner of the building and responsible for the implementation of pilot action. The school has 47 classrooms and five halls on 6360 m2. Due to its large spatial dimensions, it is extremely suitable for conducting major concerts, competitions, instructions and summer schools. The building is supplied with heat from the municipal heating network. The energy consumption of the building has been identified at 758 970 kWh/year for heating, while the electricity consumption is 201 629.10 kWh/year.

The pilot action to improve energy efficiency is implemented in 1 public building: The Music School Fran Korun Koželjski Velenje built in 1987 (with newer parts added in 1998). The Municipality of Velenje is the owner of the building and responsible for implementation. The school has 47 classrooms and five halls on 6360 m2. Due to its large spatial dimensions, it is extremely suitable for conducting major concerts, competitions, magazines and summer schools. The building is supplied with heat from the municipal heating network. The energy consumption of the building has been identified at 758.970 kWh/year for heating, while the electricity consumption is 201.629,10 kWh/year.

Within the pilot action, Municipality Velenje with help of selected external experts, installed the smart meters in the Music Scholl Fran Korun Koželjski Velenje. Noticeable energy and cost savings are expected as a direct result of the investment made in the framework and the financial aid of project BOOSTEE-CE, which accounts for a total of 14.823,00 €. The data gathered by the smart meters will be used by an energy management system that keeps track of the consumption, therefore the detailed energy flows help us to determine malfunctions, to reveal over-consumption periods and make recommendations to decrease energy use, to ease the operation of the building and most importantly to increase comfort. In the end, the Municipality of Velenje will have to pay less and emission will decrease because of this investment. The partnership is also developing a web-based platform called OnePlace, which will help other municipalities, and building operators to finance, develop and use such solutions in the future. 

The following objectives have been agreed as part of the pilot:

  • improvement of the energy performance, saving and efficiency of the building;
  • monitoring buildings data;
  • increasing the comfort of the building use;
  • easier operation of the building;
  • promoting and disseminating knowledge about energy efficiency measures in building.


The pilot action in numbers:

  • investment period: 04.2018-04.2020;
  • investment cost: 14,823 €;
  • 7 people involved in PA implementation;
  • 3 tools / instruments used;
