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 22 804 MWh per year, which is enough energy to heat water for 1 140 200 995 cups of tea or enough to drive a car over 34 206 030 kilometres.

To date, the REECL supported projects have brought reduction in CO2 emissions of 5 177 tonnes per year, which is equivalent to the amount of CO2 annually absorbed by a forest of 191 723 trees.
