According to a contract notice for the renovation of five public buildings, after the deadline for obtaining tender dossier expired on July 24, the Ministry of Economic Development expects receipt of tender by August 3.

Object of the open procedure within the Kosovo Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy Project, funded by the World Bank, is to increase energy efficiency through renovation of heating, lighting and envelope. Contract will be awarded to the bidder that offers the lowest price for the works on the buildings of Ministry of Culture, Technical Faculty, Pulmonology and Dermatology Clinic, Kosovo Agency of Statistics, and Faculty of Chemistry, all in Prishtina (Priština), the document said. Renovation will last six to eight months.

Kosovo* is unable to meet its energy demand, and an unreliable supply of electricity leads to frequent power outages, constraining businesses and affecting both job creation and investment, the World Bank said. National energy efficiency and renewable energy action plans (NEEAP, NREAP) call for cumulative energy savings of 9% over 2010 levels by 2018, and 25% of energy supply from renewable energy sources by 2020. The World Bank is working with the Government of Kosovo* to implement the USD 31 million project designed to reduce energy consumption and fossil fuel use in public buildings throughout the land by investments in efficiency and renewable energy sources.

 

* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status and is in line with UNSCR 1244/99 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.
