The objective of the Project is to systematically de-carbonize the existing building stock in Armenia to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while achieving sustainable development benefits through focusing on creating a favorable market environment and a scalable business model for investment in energy efficiency retrofits by addressing market barriers. The barriers to energy efficient building renovation will be addressed through a combination of policy and financial de-risking instruments and targeted financial incentives to key market players. The Project is structured under four components: building sector Monitoring, Report and Verification (MRV) and knowledge management; policy de-risking; financial de-risking; and financial incentives. The Project’s main objective is to ensure sizeable energy savings and accompanying GHG emissions reductions in both public and residential buildings, and will also ensure the co-benefits of green job creation and poverty reduction. In addition to funding from the Green Climate Fund, the Project will catalyze private and public sector financing for achieving the objectives and quantified indicators set in the Project Document.
UNDP will implement the Project funded by the Green Climate Fund in cooperate with the Yerevan Municipality and the European Investment Bank (EIB), and other international and national financing institutions. This Project, providing technical and investment assistance for energy efficiency retrofitting of multi-apartment and public buildings, is the first of its kind in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region. If implemented successfully, the Project approach has the potential to be scaled-up throughout Armenia and across the region.
UNDP will work with the Government, city municipalities/administrations, financing institutions, private sector stakeholders and energy services companies (ESCos) to deploy the most cost-effective combination of policy and financial de-risking instruments.
