Within the framework of the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) project “Education Energy Efficiency Project in Montenegro”, LDK Consultants conducted energy audits in 25 identified education buildings, with a total area of more than 115.000 m2 and 23.600 beneficiaries, located in 10 major cities in Montenegro.

Aligned with the EBRD Green Economy Transition (GET) initiative, the project aims to promote and support green investments, by renovating buildings via the implementation of resource efficiency (building envelope renovation, HVAC replacement, efficient lighting installation) and renewable energy (PVs, solar heating collectors) measures.

In this respect, the dedicated investment is expected to reduce the building's energy consumption, and in turn, its operational costs as well as to improve its overall (thermal, visual, and acoustic) indoor comfort and structural safety. In addition, due to the targeted building use, the project is expected to have a wider social impact, promoting energy efficiency benefits to the local Montenegrin communities.

On February 8, 2024, a pivotal project aiming to reshape the energy landscape in Serbia was finalized successfully. The IPA financed project  "Further Development of Energy Planning Capacities" has served as an example of collaboration among all the energy sector stakeholders in the country for methodological strategic planning. Τhe project is outlining goals for Serbia’s energy sector in the coming decades, aiming to ensure secure supply, energy independence, and efficient and economical management of the decarbonization process. Since its start in February 2021, the Ministry of Mining and Energy of the Republic of Serbia has joined forces with a consortium of Greek companies, LDK Consultants S.A and the Centre for Renewable Energy Sources and Saving (CRES) for the project implementation. In support, a number of international and Serbian sub-contractors (PURDUE University from USA, National Technical University of Athens from Greece, the Electricity Coordinating Center, d.o.o. and the Expert Engineering d.o.o.”  from Serbia) have collaborated.

The Ministry of Mining and Energy jointly with the project consortium initiated a mission to determine the direction of Serbia's energy and climate future by developing the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (INECP) up to 2030, with a vision to 2050. The project scope also included the drafting of the Strategic Environmental Assessment Report of the INECP, and the development of four advanced energy modelling tools specifically designed for the strategic planning and optimization of the decision making process of the energy sector of Serbia.

Τhe project is outlining goals for Serbia’s energy sector in the coming decades, aiming to ensure secure supply, energy independence, and efficient and economical management of the decarbonization process.

In the context of this strategic initiative aimed at enhancing Serbia’s energy sector, two Working Groups were established with distinct focus, to ensure comprehensive monitoring and effective supervision of the process. The first was leaning towards the analytical side of the spectrum, exploring the complexities of the energy modelling and macroeconomic tools, while the second was established with a policy-driven mindset, ensuring that the proposed policies reflected the analytical quantitative insights and aligned with Serbia's aspirations for the future of the energy sector.

An unprecedented level of collaboration across a broad spectrum of stakeholders has been fostered and demonstrated through 15 working group meetings and more than 60 multilateral discussions, bringing together 180 participants representing more than 40 diverse organisations. Oversight was provided by Ministries, public and private entities, and civil society organizations, as well as international representatives of the Energy Community Secretariat, the EU Delegation to RS, the EBRD etc.

Βeyond the vast number of simulations conducted and the introduction of sophisticated models, a crucial aspect of the project's legacy is the capacity building within the country.

Building upon the cooperative basis established by the two Working Groups, the project has made substantial progress through the refinement and development of a suite of analytical tools. However, beyond the vast number of simulations conducted, more than 600 runs, and the introduction of sophisticated models, a crucial aspect of the project's legacy is the capacity building within the country. The project included a comprehensive training program, consisting of eight workshops that equipped 45 professionals from more than 10 different organizations with new skills and capabilities in the field of energy system modelling and macroeconomic analysis. This ensures that the country is well-equipped to periodically review and revise the INECP and other strategic documents, facilitating a strategic, smooth, and gradual transition towards a more sustainable path.

An unprecedented level of collaboration across a broad spectrum of stakeholders has been fostered and demonstrated

The long-term significance of these activities extends far beyond the immediate outcomes of determining the optimal scenario selection for the INECP. The technology, know-how, and models developed and deployed will remain within the Ministry, serving as invaluable resources for Serbia for years to come.

In mid-2023, at the last phase of the project, the draft version of the INECP and SEA initiated an extensive round of public consultations in July and August 2023, with significant participation. Three joint Public Hearing sessions were held in Belgrade, Novi Sad, and in Niš with more than 160 participants from around 90 organizations. Feedback collected from the consultation period was comprehensive, totalling in more than 500 comments for INECP and 60 for SEA, from a large number of organizations and individuals. Furthermore, the Energy Community Secretariat sent more than 30 recommendations for the revision of the Draft INECP.

Since all comments, criticism, and suggestions have been thoroughly considered, this inclusive approach ensured that the final versions of the INECP and SEA documents were refined and adjusted to reflect the insights and recommendations from the public, stakeholders, and the Energy Community Secretariat. This extensive consultation cycle highlights the project's commitment to transparency, stakeholder participation, and incorporating a diverse range of inputs in achieving the objective of a sustainable and secure energy future for Serbia.

Finally, in late 2023, the project’s Working Group adopted the strategic documents, marking the conclusion of a challenging procedure. This pivotal moment not only symbolizes the culmination of years of dedicated effort but also sets a solid foundation for Serbia's sustainable energy future. Looking forward, this project has the potential to significantly influence Serbia's approach to energy and climate policy, promoting a greener, more resilient, and energy-efficient country.

An elegant tower on a perfect horizon — where Athenian energy meets the dreamy waterways of the Aegean Sea, the Riviera Tower will be the tallest building in Greece and the tallest green beachfront high-rise building in the Mediterranean (GBA: 32.530 m²). Unique architectural style, innovative design, dominant green and water features, natural light and unobstructed sea views are the main characteristics of this iconic building.

Over 169 private residences — each with a stunning view, open to air, light and the rhythms of nature. White stone and shimmering steel — wrapped around a green spine of lush vegetation.

Each residence has dual aspect and unobstructed panoramic views of the coast, the sea, the park and the mountains.

Generous balconies, verdant gardens and private pools merge seamlessly with the open-plan comfort of the homes within. Each is a unique space — a unique investment — meticulously crafted with the rich materials and relaxed style of the finest Greek living.

The Metropolitan Park is situated at the heart of the Ellinikon, covering an area of more than 2.000.000 m². It will be extended all the way from the coastal front to Vouliagmenis Ave., connecting the municipalities of Alimos, Glyfada and Argyroupoli/Hellinikon with the waterfront and providing adjacent residents easy park access.

Access to the park is made around the perimeter, from various entry points linking the project to surrounding areas and to the wider urban fabric. This ensures the connectivity of the park and its openness. The entrances are accordingly placed in the extension of the central highways, at key connection points to metro, tram and bus lines.

The design of the park focuses on highlighting the history of the former Ellinikon Airport and site while creating a vibrant green space.

Buildings of historical significance, such as the Saarinen building and the former eastern airport hangars, will be restored and transformed into buildings of cultural interest (exhibition centers & museums).

A major Promenade, 2,5 km in length, will stretch up from the waterfront to the hilltops overlooking the entire area, linking the Metropolitan Park with the coastal front, the beach, and the marina. The cape of Agios Kosmas, with its splendid church, will be one of the highlights along a pedestrian and cycling path in the coastal zone connecting the Park to Vouliagmenis Ave.

An abundance of leftover materials was reused, recycled, repurposed to reduce the project’s overall embodied carbon.
