The objective of the project "Support for Low-Emission Development in South Eastern Europe (SLED)" is to help policy makers in Albania, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia to set realistic but ambitious decarbonisation pathways for their electricity and building sectors up to 2030.

The goal of this study was to provide background information for the sectoral modelling of the public building stock in Albania. A key element of the work was the development of the very first public building typology for Albania. The next step was to estimate the energy demand of each building and to define complex retrofitting options, as well as a standard and an ambitious retrofitting package, and to determine the resulting energy savings. The report concludes with a country-wide analysis of the costs and benefits of the thermal efficiency retrofitting of Albanian public buildings.

The SLED project is implemented by the REC’s Climate Change and Clean Energy Topic Area and funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation through the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).
