Essentially, there are two measures foreseen: In the first place, district heating relies on the use of biomass (primarily wood pellets) for central heating of buildings and offers significantly lower air pollution and carbon emissions than using natural gas as a fuel. In the second place, the measure will refer to compressed natural gas (CNG) powered public transport. The aim is to replace public transport vehicles (buses) which use diesel fuel with compressed natural gas (CNG) powered vehicles to reduce carbon emissions.
Furthermore, the measure is feasible and consistent because the city of Elektrenai at the time of the EUCF application already has a CNG fueling station, eliminating the need for additional investments in equipment to fuel the vehicles.
The intended technology measures are:
