Programme to Improve Energy Efficiency in Mountain Villages in Central Asia
As of: March 2021
The project aimed to enable village populations in several Central Asian countries to use energy-efficient technologies and to improve their access to renewable energies. To achieve this objective, the project established energy committees in the villages and trained their members in energy-related topics, project development and the use of awareness-raising mechanisms. The project also organised round table discussions and film screenings on energy efficiency and building renovation in order to help disseminate the knowledge across the region. The villagers received practical training on the insulation of buildings and the construction of efficient stoves. In addition, microloans were made available for the acquisition of energy-efficient equipment.
State of implementation/results
- Project completed
- 12 pilot projects carried out in the areas of stove construction and building insulation; energy efficiency networks set up in 14 Central Asian villages
- Four films produced dealing with the following topics: the energy situation in Central Asia, efficient stove construction, energy efficiency potential, and the thermal insulation of buildings
- Microloan facility set up
