Energy efficiency is the world’s “invisible” first fuel on the way to the decarbonization of our society. AvantGarde Group helps detect and unlock this potential.
We help our clients identify, mobilize, and scale up the sources of public and private finance to realise energy efficiency measures in buildings, industry, and transport. We work on the identification of sector- and country- specific barriers hindering the market transformation towards the realisation of the potential and help design projects, programmes, and policies to overcome these barriers. In many cases, the measures also bring other benefits beyond energy savings and GHG emission reduction. These include the reduction of poverty and especially energy poverty, the increase in local job places, the acceleration of economic growth, and others. We help to identify, integrate, and maximize these co-benefits in proposed actions to ensure our clients achieve multiple goals.
We offer more than 20 years of solid track record in the design and delivery of energy efficiency projects. Thus, the only three national mitigation projects of Green Climate Fund (GCF) in Eastern Europe has been supported by AvantGarde Group, and two of them focused on energy efficiency in buildings. These are " De-Risking and Scaling-up Investment in Energy Efficient Building Retrofits" (FP10) and "Scaling-up Investment in Low-Carbon Public Buildings in Bosnia and Herzegovina" (FP51).
Scaling-up Investment in Low-carbon Public Buildings – Bosnia and Herzegovina
Reduce GHG emissions of the public sector of Bosnia-Herzegovina by accelerating penetration of energy efficiency and low carbon solutions.
Preparation of a US$ 122.5 million funding proposal for a 20-year project aimed at energy efficiency improvement of public buildings and fuel switch from fossil fuel to biomass.
