Support for Low Emission Development in South East Europe (SLED)

SLED supports the process of developing low emission policy frameworks and assists the donor community with enhanced information on possible policies and projects for low emission development.


The SLED project supports the development of low-emission policy frameworks and assists the donor community by providing detailed information on possible policies and projects for low-emission development.


  • Preparing scenarios for electricity sector development in the target countries up to 2030, identifying the costs and benefits of low-carbon development, and identifying investment options and synergies arising from cross-border cooperation.
  • Preparing country-level scenarios for the development of energy efficiency in buildings up to 2030, specifying the costs and impacts of interventions and assessing the impacts of different policy options.
  • Preparing a guidebook on scenario development for energy efficiency in buildings.
  • Organising policy workshops on the findings of the scenario analysis in the electricity and building sectors.


  • Country-level assessments of the two key sectors for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions up to 2030.
  • Most of the analytical work needed for the low-emission development strategies of the target countries prepared and made available to governments.
  • Cost-effective greenhouse gas emission reduction options and nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) identified.
  • Know-how on energy efficiency in buildings scenario development made publicly available.
  • Local capacity enhanced regarding analytical work on energy efficiency in buildings.
