The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development financed the documentation for the pilot project within the Regional Energy Efficiency Programme (REEP), approved under the Western Balkans Investment Framework (WBIF).

Assistant minister of industry, energy and mining of Srpska Milenko Todorović said the entity government backed the plans for the power and heat production in December, after receiving notes from the responsible ministries.

Mirko Šarović, minister of foreign trade and economic relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, stated his institution is one of the partners in the project, part of the country’s plan for renewables.
