From 4 to 7 March in Krakow, a training was organized for all municipalities of the Malopolska Region that concerned the heating inventory database in the Malopolska Region. This is the first database of this type in Poland that enables the collection of information on heating sources in a uniform manner. The application is used to manage the inventory of heating buildings in the municipality and update data on the replacements of heating, thermo-modernization and renewable energy sources used.
This is the second edition of training organized by the Malopolska Region. The first edition took place in December 2017. At that time, 119 municipalities from the Malopolska Region area were trained to operate the inventory database. Representatives of the Provincial Inspectorate for Environmental Protection in Krakow and the Provincial Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management in Krakow also participated. The trainings included theoretical and practical parts. Participation in the trainings was free of charge. The choice of dates and times was determined by the order of applications via the form available at the following link: https://powietrze.malopolska.pl/aktualnosci/wydarzenia/szkolenia-z-bazy-inwentaryzacji-ogrzewania
Monitoring the implementation of the anti-smog resolution
The trainings are organized in order to improve reporting and obtain correct and representative data related to the current monitoring of the implementation status of remedial actions resulting from the obligation imposed by Air Quality Plan for Małopolska Region. According to the Air Quality Plan, municipalities should prepare and regularly update the inventory base for heat sources. The obtained data, including the pollution reduction effect obtained by the municipalities, also enable monitoring the effects of the implementation of the smog resolution in the Malopolska Region. The operation of the base was indicated as “good practice” during the inspection of the Supreme Audit Office carried out in 2018.
