Using an integrated suite of de-risking interventions, the "De-risking and Scaling-up Investment in Energy Efficient Building Retrofits" UNDP Project seeks to systematically de-carbonize the existing building stock in Armenia to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while achieving sustainable development benefits. The Project, addressing both public and residential buildings, focuses on creating a favorable market environment and a scalable business model for investment in energy efficiency retrofits by addressing market barriers. These barriers to energy efficient building renovation are addressed through a combination of policy and financial de-risking instruments and targeted financial incentives to key market players.
To address each specific risk area, the Project is structured under four components: (i) building sector monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) and knowledge management, (ii) policy de-risking, (iii) financial de-risking, and (iv) financial incentives. By systematically targeting barriers, the Project will significantly reduce the investment risk profile of energy efficiency building retrofits to encourage private sector investment and thereby scale-up investment in energy efficiency building retrofits in Armenia.
