Energy efficiency

Partners: Center for Energy Efficient Building Central Asia (CEEBA)

Project start: 2009

In the mountainous regions of Central Asia, winters are long and cold. With no other fuel being available, many people in the villages use firewood and manure for heating their houses, which causes high pressure on the natural resources.

The thermal insulation of houses is an important approach to reduce the consumption of fuel and to improve the livelihood of village people. The Kyrgyz NGO “Centre for Energy Efficient Buildings” (CEEBA), a regionally operating public foundation based in Bishkek, has experience in thermal insulation measures for private houses and is specialized in engineering, training and promotion services in the field of energy efficiency. With support from the regional program, it facilitates professional trainings in thermal insulation and the reduction of legislative obstacles to the dissemination of energy efficiency technologies.
