Objective: 

The City of Banja Luka has requested the technical assistance of the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) in order to evaluate options for rehabilitating and modernizing the district heating (DH) system. Banja Luka is the second largest DH system in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). It experiences significant energy losses (in large part due to hot water leakages and heat losses) during transmission and end-use, thereby incurring major avoidable costs to the City and the publicly owned Company, while also producing unnecessarily high amounts of greenhouse gas emissions.
