MFK opens the third and final call for energy efficiency subsidies
Millennium Foundation Kosovo (MFK) with the support of Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) has launched the third and final round of Subsidies for Energy Efficiency in Kosovo (SEEK), providing grants for energy efficiency retrofits for households across Kosovo.
This call is open to all residents of Kosovo, has a maximum value of 6,500 euro, and will cover up to 50% of investments planned by households.

The call is open until 30th of April 2022 or until the financial resources are exhausted.
Through SEEK activity , MFK will invest $20.6 million in making over 2000 homes more energy efficient and provide grants for women entrepreneurs to grow their businesses.
SEEK combines three Intervention Packages to achieve its objectives. Two of the Interventions, Households Efficiency Retrofits (HER) and Apartment Building Retrofits (AER) are focused on making improvements in the residential sector through making energy efficient investments and equipment upgrades, as well as behavior change to improve energy conservation. The third intervention, Women Energy Entrepreneurs (WEE) has been focused on providing incentives for energy efficiency investments in women owned businesses.
SEEK is a pilot program which addresses the inadequate electricity supply in Kosovo. SEEK focuses on piloting several iterations of subsidies focused on reducing electricity consumption in the residential sector through grants and other incentives to encourage households to invest in energy efficiency measures.
At the conclusion of the SEEK Program over 2000 households will become more energy efficient through retrofits and promoting the use of energy efficient heating devices.
Millennium Foundation Kosovo is an accountable entity responsible for implementation of the $49 million Threshold agreement, signed by the Republic of Kosovo and MCC in 2017. MFK’s mission statement calls for accelerating Kosovo’s transition to energy independence and good governance. The Kosovo Threshold Program addresses two key constraints to Kosovo’s economic growth: an unreliable supply of electricity; and real and perceived weakness in rule of law, government accountability and transparency.
