It is the first law on energy efficiency on buildings adopted within the post-Soviet countries and an important step for the Kyrgyz Republic into the direction of the enhancement of the energy efficiency of building sector.
A new legislation on energy performance of buildings is a result of the project of UNISON "Enhancing Regulatory Framework for Energy Efficiency in Built Environment”.
