Small-Scale Energy-Efficiency Solutions for the Rural People in the Republic of Armenia

German Sparkassenstiftung for International Cooperation has launched a new project on energy efficiency in response to the urgent need for sustainable heating solutions in rural Armenia.

The main objective of the project is to provide emergency relief assistance to forcibly displaced persons from Nagorno-Karabakh and their host communities in five regions: Tavush, Lori, Shirak, Gegharkunik, and Syunik. They are the most vulnerable households. Most of them cannot afford appropriate heating sources during the cold winter.

On a broader level, the project aims to connect the demand side and the supply side of energy efficiency solutions. It will facilitate a new market in selected rural areas by promoting energy efficient stoves in households. Local metal and stove manufacturers, including displaced skilled individuals from Nagorno-Karabakh, will be strengthened through various capacity building trainings on technical and entrepreneurial aspects. This will help them to successfully run their businesses and make informed decisions.

The project involves a multi-level marketing campaign to raise awareness about the benefits of energy-efficient stoves.  Additionally, the campaign seeks to promote demand for sustainable, energy-efficient solutions in the regions of Armenia, reducing the use of inefficient and environmentally harmful heating methods.

Financed by

by the European Union (EU) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) within the “EU4Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in Armenian Communities” project.
