Our experts support countries in the region in achieving sustainable development goals, helping them to develop and implement national strategies and action plans, information systems, to set up a common exchange information platforms, as well as to manage environmental issues, etc. CENER21 works with governments and regulators to help establish and develop the policy and regulatory frameworks required to support nature conservation and promote biodiversity. Through partnerships in the region and EU, CENER21 empowers economic development of local communities, unlocking the potential of protected areas (e.g. development of pro-biodiversity businesses).
Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
CENER21 guides developing countries on their path towards lower-carbon and climate resilient societies and assists them in processes of reduction in crude oil utilization and procurement. We help the countries to reduce heat and financial losses while encouraging the local economy and creating possibilities for local job development. Our organization is the starting point for all potential investors in the energy sector. Our team is highly skilled to deliver feasibility studies required for decision making on the prospective financing, whether in heating/coolingsystems improvement or integration of renewable energy sources into already established systems. CENER21 played a significant role in building skills and capacities of local experts and officials in the energy sector in BiH. The country needs reliable technical capacities to succeed with the implementation of requirements in energy sector and CENER21 highly contributed to the development of the capacities necessary to lead the energy sector development in the future.
