Removing Barriers to Energy Efficiency Improvements in the State Sector in Belarus
The project aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by catalyzing current investments in energy efficiency in the state sector of Belarus. The project will target municipalities, state and communal enterprises in the district heating and combined heat and power sectors. The project objectives are to strengthen institutional capacity to support energy saving in the state sector; establish a track record for investments in sustainable energy efficiency projects in the state sector; develop straightforward financial “starter” mechanisms in a challenging investment climate to promote investments in the state sector; and overcome negative perceptions of incentives for energy saving in the state sector and provide local authorities and state enterprises with much-needed market information and training.
