The cantonal government in Tuzla in northeastern Bosnia and Herzegovina adopted an action plan to increase energy efficiency in the residential sector.

The government trusted the Ministry for Physical Planning and Environmental Protection with keeping track of the plan’s fulfilment. The document covers a total of 973 residential buildings in Tuzla Canton. The plan is expected to reduce both the energy consumption in residential sector and pollution in the administrative region.

Earlier this month, prime minister Bego Gutić and minister of physical planning and environmental protection Hasan Fehratović reviewed the plan with representatives of company Enova d.o.o. from capital Sarajevo.

Implementation will be costly with an estimated total of BAM 92 million (EUR 47 million), the local government said. However, it will enable the cantonal authorities to apply for international funds.
