Scaling-up Investment in Low-Carbon Public Buildings Approved October 2017 Est. implementation period 8.0 years
Reducing emissions from Bosnia-Herzegovina’s public sector buildings through better energy efficiency and fuel substitution from fossil fuel to biomass.

Bosnia-Herzegovina has a large stock of ageing buildings with high energy consumption and that are heated by high-emission fossil fuels. This is a consequence of neglect and under-investment during and after the Bosnian war (1992-1995), and leaves buildings in urgent need of upgrade.

Energy efficiency retrofits and substituting coal and fuel oil to biomass will significantly reduce emissions from public buildings. The project will impact 7-8% of stock, some 360 public buildings. Technical assistance will also help address non-financial barriers and create supportive policies, regulations, and capacities to support the transformations and encourage replication.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 20 years.
