Objective and activities

The project introduced a new credit line for energy efficiency in the banking sectors of Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. This way energy savings of approximately 20% for each investment were achieved. Selected local partner banks were provided with credit lines for energy efficiency. The loans extended by the banks focused on comparatively simple and cost-effective energy efficiency measures.
