A London-based bank has launched a manual to boost energy efficiency and renewable energy in Belarus.
It will act as a guide for local businesses which are interested in introducing energy management systems.
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) expects the guide to help them reduce between 10% and 30% of their total energy consumption.
The manual looks at the fundamentals of energy management, offers guidance on how to apply international best practices and develop energy efficiency projects.
Francis Delaey, EBRD’s Head of Office in Belarus, said: “Energy consumption in Belarus against GDP is still 2.5 times higher than on average in the European Union.
“The reduction of their production costs through a variety of energy efficiency measures may hold the key to their future success.”
