Using an integrated suite of de-risking interventions, the Project seeks to systematically de-carbonise 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 favourable 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.
