1. It is assumed that the use of 1 kWh of energy from different sources for residential heating in Bulgaria, taking into account the current fuel mix (biomass, natural gas, heating oil and coal), generates a carbon footprint of 227g CO2.

2. Estimated operation time of Bulgaria base load heating capacity is 3,200 hours.

3. According to the IEA, the Annual Heat Use in the residential sector in Bulgaria is 5408 TJ = 1,502,222 MWh.

To date, the REECL financed projects have saved 34 637 MWh per year, which is enough energy to heat water for 1 731 845 253 cups of tea or enough to drive a car over 51 955 358 kilometres.

To date, the REECL supported projects have brought reduction in CO2 emissions of 7 863 tonnes per year, which is equivalent to the amount of CO2 annually absorbed by a forest of 291 207 trees.
