BiH has around 7,600 public buildings, including 2,908 in Republika Srpska and 4,419 in the Federation of BiH (FBiH), which are estimated to require energy efficiency investments of between EUR 350 million and EUR 510 million.   Energy efficiency investments under the project refer to retrofits of school and hospital buildings across BiH to secure cleaner and more efficient heating, improved thermal insulation, better lighting, and an overall improvement of conditions in the buildings, the World Bank said.

With the evolution of European societies, many places in our built environment (notably industrial, religious and military sites) have lost their original function.

As a result, their social, environmental and economic value can increase, while their cultural or historical significance is enhanced.
