The first meeting of the REPLACE Local Working Group for Sarajevo Canton was held end of June aiming to make heating and cooling in households for European consumers efficient, economically resilient, clean and climate-friendly. The project has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
The meeting was attended by the key stakeholder portfolio including representatives of the cantonal ministry, local governments, academia, public utility companies and installers/salers and suppliers of heating and cooling systems in the Sarajevo Canton.
Through an interactive discussion, the members of the working group have identified the key potentials and barriers for the replacement of inefficient heating and cooling systems, while expressing their strong interest to implement project activities to encourage renewable energy sources (RES) utilisation. As a final touch to a fruitful discussion, the group has prioritised project activities that will be implemented in the Sarajevo Canton in the next two years to promote the use of RES in the sector.
ENOVA will keep following COVID-19 status and implements the activities as per recommendations of the European Union and local government!
