Armenia Receives Landmark Grant in Energy Efficiency

AUGUST 22, 2016 • Historically, Armenia suffers from very poorly insulated housing stock. Most of its multi-apartment buildings were built 40, 50, even 60 years ago. Even those built more recently were constructed without a consideration that energy prices might increase and the buildings’ operational costs would ever become such a burden. We have the same issue in the public sector, in schools, hospitals, ministries, etc. Financial resources that are being spent on heating costs could be reinvested into other critical areas. Say nothing of the negative environmental consequences that this kind of energy use produces. Thirdly, Armenia’s rural areas are at higher risk of energy insecurity. The houses built there, many of which are larger than their urban counterparts, are exposed to harsher climatic conditions. This also increases the pressure on local woodland areas, as people burn wood for heating. ... go to Website
