The Kosovo Fund for Energy Efficiency, on Monday (07.08.2023) marked the beginning of the implementation of the project “Implementation of Energy Efficiency Measures for Individual Residential Houses”. Through a budget of 10 million euros, citizens will be subsidized up to 45% for the implementation of efficient measures such as: thermal insulation of external walls and the roof, replacement of doors and windows.

FKEE Board Member Nora Arifi informed the audience that an additional bonus of 5%, thus increasing the subsidy to 50%, will be given if the property is co-owned by spouses or if the wife is the owner of the house. Arifi thanked the European Union for financing the project through the Government of the Republic of Kosovo, as well as the Ministry of Economy for the continuous support.

The Minister of Economy, Artane Rizvanolli said that she is happy that a project is starting which will affect the reduction of energy bills for citizens.

The representative of the European Union Office, Alessandro Bianciardi, said that they remain committed to supporting Kosovo on the path to good and clean energy.

The conditions of the application are that the house must be habitable, in 21 of the last 24 months, with electricity consumption of at least 250 kWh/month and if the house does not have thermal insulation or is partially insulated.

The limited subsidy amount is 5,500 euros.

The application is made through the e-Kosova platform, from August 8, 2023.
