Pilot action in the Zlín Region
The pilot action encompasses quite a huge number of buildings: The Uherské Hradiště Hospital, Grammar School in Holešov, Secondary Pedagogical and Social School Kroměříž; Basic School 1. Máje Kroměříž; Grammar School Valašské Klobouky and last but not least the Grammar School and Secondary Medical School Vsetín.
The Uherské Hradiště Hospital (Dormitory building, Intern medicine (new building), Autopsy building) with total area of 12 375,36 m2, volume of 45 702,8 m3 were built in 1972, 2017-2018 and 1917, respectively. The buildings are used by 165 people and other staff. The buildings are connected to the district heating system powered by natural gas boilers. Electricity consumption is almost 133 MWh. The new building is classified as “A” that means extremely low consumption of energy in the term of hospital buildings.
The four-story building of Grammar School in Holešov with an area of 4 948,1 m2, volume of 22 878,3 m3 was built in 1902. The building is used by 408 students, 33 teachers and other staff. Heat used for heating and for hot water is prepared in the 4 natural gas boilers with 480 kW overall power. Electricity is mainly used for lights and partially for the circulating pumps for heating system.
The four-story building of the Secondary Pedagogical and Social School Kroměříž with an area of 5 232,4 m2, volume of 25 629,7 m3 was built in 1902. The building is used by 180 students and 35 teachers. Building is heated by 2 natural gas boilers with 192 kW overall power from year 1994. Only 5 MWh is used for lights and circulating pumps in heating system.
The three-story building of Basic School 1. Máje Kroměříž with an area of 3 406,2 m2, volume of 9 055,7 m3 was built in 1887. The building is used by 50 children and 11 teachers. Building is heated by the 4 natural gas boilers with 192 kW overall power. Electricity is mainly used just for lighting.
The four-story building of Grammar School Valašské Klobouky with an area of 4 649,83 m2, volume of 20 835 m3 was built in 1906 (historical part) and 1995 (newer part). The building is used by 210 students, 23 teachers and 11 other staff. The building is heated by 3 natural gas boilers (each has 80 kW installed power). Hot water is prepared in two 22 kW and 19 kW natural gas boilers. All radiators are equipped with thermostatic valves and whole heating system is regulated in the boiler room.
The three-story building of Grammar School and Secondary Medical School Vsetín with an area of 2 929,99 m2, volume of 13 476,4 m3 was built at the beginning of 20th century. The building is used by 276 students, 20 teachers and other staff. The building is connected to the district heating system. 500 kW heat exchanger supports the building with heat and preparation of hot water. Zlín region is the owner of the buildings.
The following objectives have been agreed as part of the pilot:
- thermo-modernization of buildings,
- construction of a new hospital building in modern standards (low energy consumption)
- increasing the comfort of the building use and easier operation of the building
- promoting and disseminating knowledge about energy efficiency measures in buildings.
The pilot action is a supplementary action for a 16093920 € investment carried out by Zlín Region. Energy Agency of the Zlín Region and BOOSTEE-CE contributed to the investment by energy management and energy audits. The main outcomes are the following:
- 953 919 kWh annual reduction of energy consumption,
- 55 060 € annual cost savings,
- 90,695 tons annual reduction of CO2 emission.
