The GCF Funded Climate Change Mitigation Project “Scaling-up Investment in Low-Carbon Public Buildings” aims to overcome barriers to investment in low-carbon retrofits of public buildings by addressing country and sector-specific investment risks, as follows:
- Output 1 will provide technical assistance (TA) to public and private sector stakeholders at municipal, cantonal, entity and national level in BiH to help address non-financial barriers, and to create conducive policies, regulations and capacities for implementation of the National Investment Framework for Low-Carbon Public Buildings.

Input data include all data related to buildings; the general characteristics of the building; energy systems in the building; daily readings from the meter (remotely or manually entered) and the monthly bills for consumed energy and water. In order to better analysis and calculations of indicators of consumption were integrated and climate data.
