Description of activities Improving energy efficiency in the buildinImproving energy efficiency in the building sector has been assigned high priority in Armenia’s climate, energy, and housing strategies. This NAMA will focus on new construction and capital renovation, as well as maintenance/management of those buildings which are supported by public means and/or owned and managed by public institutions. Public means include state budget, IFI loans/grants, municipal budget, public foundations and public-private partnerships. The NAMA support program will address the main barriers and provide support to: reforming sectoral policy and strategies, accelerating the development and enforcement of ambitious regulatory framework, building capacity and raising awareness, as well as eliminating financial barriers. All relevant practices, measures and technologies for energy efficiency will be considered, including energy efficient design with incorporation of passive solar, efficiency upgrades to building envelop, heating/ventilation/cooling system, renewable energy applications in the buildings, high-efficiency heating systems, etc. The energy efficiency in building operation, maintenance and the use will also be addressed. Assuming partners/donors/financiers could be found, the activities will start in 2015. The 1st phase of the NAMA will cover the period of 2015-2020. The NAMA support program target beneficiaries and leveraged national actions are lined up for this timeframe. The following NAMA-components are proposed: 1. Investment grants to cover (initial) incremental investment costs for energy efficiency in new construction and rehabilitation (public buildings, social housing) for planned investment programs; 2. Investment program for energy efficient rehabilitation/construction of public buildings, additional to planned investment programs through leveraging low interest concessional loans, with higher energy efficiency requirements; 3. Technical support and capacity building, supporting component 1 and 2 through outreach, capacity building, strengthened policy enforcement, as well as strengthening building management/maintenance.ngthening building management/maintenance.

MRV approach Direct impact: GHG emission reduction in Direct impact: GHG emission reduction in new construction/renovation/management in public buildings and housing supported by public means (direct NAMA scope). This includes promoting energy efficiency in planned investment programs as well as in new investment programs. Activities: The actual level as basis for MRV is defined to be the floorage of those buildings that fall with the direct scope of the NAMA, are addressed by the NAMA activities, and that are newly constructed/renovated or which management is improved. Baseline for energy use and GHG emissions: The baseline could be based on current common practice, having as indicator the historical specific energy demand in buildings in the same sector, the same use, and of the same typology in the last couple of years. The impact of the NAMA results in the implementation of energy efficiency technologies and practices in construction, renovation and management with NAMA support. This will be reflected in the specific final energy use of building compared to the baseline. use of building compared to the baseline.

NAMA short description Promoting energy efficiency in public buildings and social housing, with particular focus on energy efficiency measures in new construction, capital renovation and in management of buildings of public ownership or financing
Objective To promote improved energy efficiency, theTo promote improved energy efficiency, the NAMA project will target the following key objectives: - Support the policy, regulatory, institutional, and market transformation leading to a higher level of energy efficiency of structures and decreased GHG emissions from the building sector. - Contribute to improved energy performance of public buildings in health, educational, cultural and other sectors, improving comfort level, cutting public budget allocations for energy bills, while improving the overall quality of public services. - Support the provision of adequate and affordable housing in Armenia using integrated building design concept, and contribute in reducing the total costs for operation of buildings, decreasing public costs and costs for the users/clients. - Contribute to the development objectives of Armenia (environment, economic, and social), related to the construction and building sector. - Support transformational change to a low-emission development path in the longer term. - Contribute to improving Armenia’s energy security.te to improving Armenia’s energy security.
