Kosovo launches EU-supported energy efficiency programme for households

Kosovo’s government has launched a subsidy programme for energy efficiency measures for individual residential houses (8 August).

The programme provides financial assistance for households considering external thermal insulation, thermal insulation of roofs, external windows and doors replacement and thermal insulation of basement/ground floor ceiling.

This project is supported by EU funding provided to the Kosovo government under the European Commission’s Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA) III.

The subsidy covers 45 per cent of the cost of implementing the measures, or the maximum amount of up to 5.500 euros, for private households. While up to 50 per cent of the costs are covered when the property is co-owned by spouses, or if the wife is the owner of the house.

In terms of the eligibility criteria, applicants’ properties must have been habitable for at least 21 out of the last 24 months, with a minimum monthly electricity consumption of 250 kilowatt hours (kWh). The property must also not already be thermally insulated, but can still be eligible if it is only partially insulated.
