The Albanian Government, through its Ministry of Energy and Industry and Ministry of Urban Development and Tourism, with the assistance of international organizations (UNECE, the International Finance Corporation [IFC] and the United Nations Development Programme [UNDP]) is harmonizing its legislation on energy efficiency and the energy performance of buildings.

Part of this collaborative process is the two-day workshop “Energy efficient housing for sustainable development”, which took place on 7 and 8 July 2014 in Tirana. The workshop was organized by the Albanian Government in cooperation with the UNECE, IFC and UNDP.

The workshop aimed to raise the awareness of stakeholders in Albania on the benefits of energy-efficient housing, informed them about the country’s obligations to reduce energy consumption in the residential sector as part of Albania’s accession to the European Union and discussed ongoing initiatives on energy efficient housing in Albania and internationally. The workshop highlighted building norms and standards, condominium management and the retrofitting of existing housing stock.
