Short description of the overall project

The Government of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina has received financing from the World Bank towards the cost of an Energy Efficiency Project. The project development objective is to demonstrate the benefits of energy efficiency improvements in public sector buildings and support the development of scalable energy efficiency financing models. The project will consist of three components:

  • An investment component: This component will support energy efficiency investments (‘subprojects’) in schools, hospitals and clinic centers.
  • A component to support the development of scalable financing mechanisms and build capacity.
  • A component for project management.

The development objective of the Project is to demonstrate the benefits of improving energy efficiency in the public sector facilities and to support the development of flexible models for financing the energy efficiency.
