This report presents the available financial models supporting energy-efficient renovation of multifamily residential buildings in the five target countries of the ComAct project – Bulgaria, Hungary, Lithuania, North Macedonia and Ukraine. They are collected and described with the specific goal of identifying individual approaches to the inclusion of households suffering or at risk of energy poverty in national and local renovation policies, taking into account the scope, volume of investment and expected energy savings.
The report aims to provide a reliable overview of existing support schemes in the region to support future policy analyses, and to lay the foundation for the future design of innovative financial instruments specifically targeted to meet the needs of low-income households.
The report covers the following schemes:
- offered and managed by commercial banks and specialised funds (loans, guarantees, forfeiting, bonds),
- existing grant schemes,
- energy performance contracts and energy service company (ESCO) schemes,
- chauffage (long-term energy supply) contracts,
- on-bill recovery and on-tax recovery,
- leasing schemes,
- white/green certificates,
- energy efficiency obligation schemes,
- emissions trading,
- dedicated financial support to low-income/vulnerable households (fuel subsidies),
- specialised energy poverty alleviation mechanisms.
We invite you to browse the ComAct toolbox which lists all the schemes listed above here.
