Project "Demand Side Residential Energy Efficiency Through Gas Distribution Companies In Bulgaria" (DESIREE GAS) will provide funding, grants and technical assistance for transition from carbon-intensive electricity to natural gas in the Bulgarian households. It will finance internal gas installations, high-efficiency gas water heaters and space heating in single-family houses and multifamily units.

Natural gas is highly effective as a fuel and is environmentally friendly than other fossil fuels. Its use does not emit soot, odors and dust in the air.

Benefits to energy consumers of natural gas are not only in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, but also in increased energy efficiency and electricity savings.

Specific benefits of the project will be:

  • Installation of high-efficiency boilers in compliance with recent international best practices on energy efficiency;
  • Significant cost savings for heat generation;
  • Significant reduction of localized air pollution in the case of solid fuels substitution;
  • Reduction of heat supply interruption risks and improvement of indoor comfort conditions.
