Background

Using an integrated suite of de-risking interventions, the 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 measurement, 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.

The main objective of this task is to support the Project management as technical expert team member in activities related to the buildings’ energy efficient measures-related materials, monitoring of ongoing retrofit works,
