Hungarian - Danish NGO Cooperation Project
Idea Catalogue

Energy Policy Working and lobby for
- National Sustainable Energy Policy towards 2030
- Support System (building codes etc)
- Legal framework (do not give it up)
- Simplified support system for the installation of systems, especially for individuals
- Simple procedure to connect to grid with wind mills and PV panels

- Production of small windmills (after established inside market, export possibilities)
- Efficient ovens and boilers with autoimmunization
- Small district heating systems fueled by straw and bio-bricket
- Cogeneration plants (natural gas, biogas, biomass)
- Animals' manure to use at biogas plants
- Solar collectors with 2 circles, solar collector used with water and extension water tank

- Plant oil used as fuel, with modified motors, workshops
(Training for car repair people to learn to modify motors)
- More bicycle roads, and bicycle parking place
- Bicycling culture development from the childhood
- Production and import of bicycle trailers for children and for transport
- Car sharing arrangement

House Building
-Reconstruction of house blocks in towns, leaving the street front houses, and
  building parks in court yards where recycle and waste stations are placed.
- Wall paint cooked from milk, wheat, linseed oil etc.
- Using thuja tree covering houses, which grows in Europe and do not need paint
- Bigger insolation at walls (15-25cm) ceilings (35 cm) and floors
- Granulated paper insolation
- Insolation materials. straw, linen, perlit
- Compulsory energy certification of house when it is sold
- Energy efficient bulbs sale at a cheaper price sold at big shopping chains
- Energy efficient windows
- House building from straw and clay

Water- Sewage
- Production and import of compost and separation toilets
- Urine collection and irrigation to the fields
- Grey water evaporation in willows, then using willows to fuel heating station
- Reed bed sewage treatment
- Sewage and rain water reuse by growing plants, which is eaten by animals (fish, pig)
- Using rainwater in washing machines and toilets

Starting up new programs in smaller and then bigger housing/municipal areas with one or more elements of:
- Biological degradable waste sacks (to compost)
- Selection of waste (organic, non-organic, glass, paper, plastic, metal)
- Composting at houses, courtyards and using it for gardens around
- Re-use of agro-industrial byproducts (straw, rape, shells) making brainstorming finding out unused potential)
- Organic waste collection for the a municipal biogas plant (Collecting waste in 2 different colored waste sack)

- Using experiences provided by the project to education and campaigns of the NGOs
- Green School initiative, Energy courses with diploma etc
- Integrating energy and environment into other subjects of the school (geography, history etc)
- Establishing "Energy Houses" with experiments and teachers, where a course could be chosen by a school gratis
- Electricity meters can be placed in schools and institutions in a very well seen place
- Translating to Hungarian the Energy Experiment and joining the database of the School Energy Forum
- Experiments used at the school (bicycle measuring the amount of energy, wind mill from sewage tube, etc.)

Financing / Mentality
- Cooperative investment (e.g. wind mills, land to farm organically)
- High priority buying ecological products, which creates demands, higher amount of production, which decrease the prices
- More publications on environmentally friendly lifestyle
- Democratic decision making in practice. Belief in lobbying to change the law towards an aim, if it is reasonably argued and supports the environment.
