Financing Energy Efficiency and Climate Adaptation Measures on Household Level in Kyrgyzstan - Market Based Approaches for a Post-Soviet Country?
Presenter: Jonas van der Straeten, (Research Group Microenergy Systems,Technische Universität Berlin, Germany)
| This paper explores the potential of innovative financing tools to foster the implementation of energy efficiency measures such as thermal insulation, using the example of two regions in Kyrgyzstan. The country is challenged by cold winters, national energy crises and poorly insulated housing inherited from Soviet times. Based on a household survey the paper investigates the problem of climate vulnerability and high energy expenditures on household level, identifies financing gaps for investments into efficiency measures and discusses financing tools to address them, such as green microfinance..
