GreenMax Capital Advisors (GreenMax) in cooperation with the Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) was retained by the World Bank to undertake the project “Poland: Making EE Investments Available to the Poor” to study in detail the ways by which building Energy Efficiency programs in Poland may better facilitate EE (“EE”) investments to benefit low income populations living in multifamily residential buildings. The purpose of this assignment was to propose a menu of policy options by which national and local governments in Poland can facilitate EE investments in multifamily residential buildings with targeted benefits for low income groups. The report found that: “ The existing financial mechanisms of support for thermo-modernization reach low-income groups only in a moderate and indirect way. There is no specific instrument supporting the energy poverty group in Energy Efficiency investments. Low income populations benefit from these programs, but mostly by chance rather by initiation – as owner residents in fully private Homeowner’s Associations and Co-operatives that have been able to take loans under Poland’s Thermo-modernization Program or as inhabitants of communal flats in mixed ownership buildings.”

The report provides the design of financing mechanisms for energy efficiency investments in all types of buildings in Kosovo covering the commercial sector, residential sector (individual households and multifamily housing blocks) and public sector (municipal and central governmental). The legal acts and financial sector have been reviewed in-depth in order to propose these mechanisms. The proposed approaches include government, donor and commercial financing, ESCO models and concepts for establishing an Energy Efficiency Fund.

2) Mechanisms for the creation of an EE Fund; and 3) Financing mechanisms for implementing EE measures in public buildings. The study concluded that “There is a wide range of financing mechanisms available for potential implementation given the current environment in Ukraine.
