Transcript of "Nfs Perkupa"

  1. 1. Pilot community: PERKUPA HUNGARY Population: 941 inhabitants Area: 1940 ha Address: Perkupa, Kossuth L. Str. 12 Zip code: 3756 Phone: +36 48 462 001 Fax: +36 48 562 201 Mayor Zoltán Molnár e-mail: molnarzoli12@freemail.hu website: - Perkupa is situated in the northern part of Hungary, in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County, 10 km away from the Slovakian border, in the valley of the Bódva river. This settlement dates back to the middle-ages. It belonged to the Torna clan during the master hood of kings of the Árpád dynasty. The name of the settlement has Slavic roots, with the meaning “moat”. The traditional economical activities of the inhabitants are connected with agriculture, animal breeding and forestry. The most important mineral resources in this area are chalk-stone and gypsum. There was a gypsum mine and a mill functioning up until 1990, then a marble and band-stone factory operated up until 2008. Perkupa is famous for its stone bridges, for the baroque Calvinist church which was built in 1800, and for the catholic church with the Madonna sculpture, dated from the 18th century. Renewable Energy Sources Now: Plans to build an air-conditioner and a heat-pump assembling factory. The high-priced heating with gas is a big problem for inhabitants with low solvency, because of high unemployment. Future: Proceeding biomass for solid fuel and modernising the heating system of public buildings. Rational Use of Energy Now: Preparation of projects and initiatives based on the utilisation of RES and creation of new work opportunities related to these activities. Future: Collecting the solid biomass produced in the neighborhood and using it within the heating system of governmental buildings instead of gas.
