Climate friendly economy: Introduction of best available techniques (BAT)

As of: May 2018

Objective and activities

The aim of the project is to introduce and spread efficient climate friendly technologies in selected sectors of industry and selected regions of Russia. The significant reduction of GHG should be reached by increasing the energy efficiency and by using 'best available techniques' (BAT). The regulations for these techniques in Russia are recently embodied in law. The project is planned as a common activity of KfW and GIZ. The part of KfW is to finance investments in cooperation with Russian partner banks. The GIZ part will focus on counselling of legal and institutional framework, training, knowledge transfer and the planning and support of pilot projects.
