The project objective is to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting from current heat and hot water supply practices in Armenian cities by laying the foundation for sustainable development of heat and hot water supply services in these cities while taking into account global environmental impacts.
Within this framework the project aims to:
(i) strengthen the role of condominiums in collectively organizing and managing heat and hot water supply services at the building level;
(ii) support the restructuring and capacity building of the existing district companies to improve both their service quality and operational efficiency;
(iii) support the new decentralized service providers to commercially run, market and diversify their businesses, in order to promote the use of alternative environmentally clean and energy efficient technologies and to structure financing for the required investments in areas that do not sustain the centralized district heating services;
(iv) disseminate the outputs, experiences and lessons learnt under the project by assessing the actual volumes of GHG emissions reduction due to implementation of pilot projects to ensure the implementation of the overall goal of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
