The Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has adopted draft agreements between the German development bank KfW and relevant institutions of Republika Srpska and the Federation of BiH on a EUR 19.5 million grant for the energy renovation of buildings.

The grant will be implemented through KfW via financing agreements to be signed by the end of 2019. The period of implementation is four years.

It is expected that approximately 40 buildings will be renovated, while about 15% of the funds will be used for accompanying services, such as the implementation consultant, design work, supervision, detailed energy audits, and building energy certification, KfW told Balkan Green Energy News.

EUR 10 million will be allocated to Republika Srpska, and EUR 9.5 million to the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina

The EUR 19.5 million relates to financing agreements for two projects for energy efficiency in public buildings. The grant-based financing is provided to BiH within the German Financial Cooperation and is based on a bilateral agreement being concluded between the Federal Republic of Germany and BiH on financial cooperation for the year 2018.

The project’s goal is to reduce CO2 emissions, as well as to work towards poverty alleviation by channeling at least 40% of the investments to underdeveloped parts of the country

Out of this amount, EUR 10 million will be allocated to the Republika Srpska entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and EUR 9.5 million to the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina entity. The funds are to be used for energy efficiency measures in public buildings, primary schools and kindergartens, KfW said.

The project seeks to direct part of achieved savings into new energy efficiency projects in order to promote sustainability and scalability.

The project’s goal is to reduce CO2 emissions that contribute to global warming, as well as to work towards poverty alleviation by channeling at least 40% of the investments to underdeveloped parts of the country, KfW said.
