Prishtina HeatSave supports the transition of district heating residential customers on the Prishtina-located Termokos network from area-based billing to consumption-based billing through the installation of heat metering equipment. As a result of this intervention, this project aims to reduce overall demand and enable expansion of heat supply services to new consumers.
The program will test different modalities and strategies for packaging District Heating Metering (DHM) and energy efficiency services to maximize customer value, reliability, and sector cost efficiency. This entails technical feasibility works, as well as formative research to design a social and behavior change campaign.
The DHM Activity is also expected to improve Termokos’ performance by providing technical assistance and capacity-building efforts. The activity will also support the Energy Regulatory Office on the district heating services tariff design.
Expected outcomes include:
- Greater consumer control over heat consumption;
- Expansion of Termokos network to increase the number of households that are able to switch from electric heat to DHM
- Termokos and private energy service companies to offer innovative, value-added and bundled energy efficiency services, such as heat supply agreements
