Reduction of pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the loss of heat and water and increasing the energy efficiency
The energy demand for space heating and hot water in Kosovo is mainly met by using firewood and electrical heating generated from lignite, whereas district heating is rarely used. This situation is hardly environmentally acceptable or sustainable. The project consists of two main components: (i) implementation of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) between Termokosâ€“power plant Kosova B and (ii) refurbishment of the district heating network in Prishtina. Additionally to the Financial Cooperation funds, co-financing administered by KfW was provided by the European Commission amounting to 13.8 million Euro, by Sweden around 2 million Euro and by Luxembourg 1.5 million Euro.
