EU helps energy efficiency in public buildings in Sarajevo Canton

Bosnia and Herzegovina

As part of the “Energy efficiency in public buildings in Sarajevo Canton” project, a ceremony was held on 3 June to mark the completion of works to improve the energy efficiency of the “Labudovi” preschool in Sarajevo. The works include thermal insulation of the facade, the installation of thermostatic valves on existing radiators, the installation of calorimeters and automatic heating control with a circulating pump, the replacement of inefficient lighting with new LED bulbs, and preparatory and accompanying works on the building renovation.

 

The project is implemented under the Regional Energy Efficiency Programme (REEP/REEP Plus) for the Western Balkans. The European Union provided €2 million in grants, while the Government of Sarajevo Canton provided €8 million from a loan through the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

 

The REEP/REEP Plus programme is identified in the European Commission’s Economic and Investment Plan for the Western Balkans as one of the Flagship “Renovation Wave” projects contributing to clean energy. These projects contribute significantly to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and improve the living standards and health of citizens. They are part of the EU Regulation and Green Agenda Targets for the Western Balkans, following the five pillars of the European Green Deal.
