Subsidies for Energy
Efficiency in Kosovo

This Intervention Package is being implemented in coordination and cooperation with 7 Municipalities in Kosovo: Lipjan, Gracanica, Viti, Gjakova, Mitrovica, Novoberdo and Prishtina. SEEK will provide subsidies to retrofit 25 multi-family apartment buildings and make them more energy efficient to reduce energy consumption. Applications for this Intervention Package are now CLOSED.

The focus of AER is on providing Subsidies for Kosovo apartment communities to invest in retrofits that will reduce energy consumption, as well as support the behavior change towards energy efficiency.

AER will provide grants to apartment communities in competitively selected municipalities to implement energy efficiency upgrades to common areas and the thermal envelope. Qualifying retrofits can include, but are not limited to: 

 

  • Improving the external thermal insulation of walls and roofs;
  • Energy-efficient windows and/or external doors (wind fangs where applicable);
  • Weather sealing of common areas;
  • Energy-efficient water heaters (including solar thermal water heaters where applicable);
  • Energy-efficient biomass stoves or furnaces that use sustainable fuel sources;
  • Retrofit of central heating system boilers and installation of thermostatic heating valves (for multi-family apartment buildings that have standalone central systems);
  • Energy-efficient lighting bulbs.
