With UNDP support, Armenia has developed a NAMA “Energy Efficient Public Buildings and Housing in Armenia”. This NAMA will focus on new construction and capital renovation, as well as maintenance/management of those buildings, that are supported by public means and/or owned and managed by public institutions.
The NAMA has three components:
1) Investment grants to cover (initial) incremental investment costs for energy efficiency in new construction and rehabilitation (public buildings, social housing) for planned investment programs;
2) New investment program for energy efficient rehabilitation/construction of public buildings, additional to planned investment programs through leveraging low interest concessional loans, with higher energy efficiency requirements;
3) Technical support and capacity building, supporting component 1 and 2, including support to strengthening building management/maintenance.
