Korolev: Prototype for Saving Heating Energy
As of: January 2021
The purpose of the project was to increase energy efficiency in the housing sector in the Russian Federation and to develop a replicable concept for financing the renovation of urban infrastructure (heating, energy and water supply). The aim was to finance energy efficiency measures through energy contracting, which involved using funds generated through energy savings to repay the costs of initial investment. The target groups were primarily representatives and companies from the housing industry and energy suppliers. The project was preparing a feasibility study to demonstrate the applicability of the new financing mechanism in the energy-efficient renovation of a sample prefabricated building.
