Home owners have difficulties in tackling a retrofit project. In order to facilitate the process, INNOVATE develops and rolls out attractive energy retrofit packages, ideally offered in one location – a one-stop-shop.
The overall aim of PROSPECT is to enable peer-to-peer learning in regional and local authorities in order to finance and implement their sustainable energy plans.
Engaging national, regional and local partners, the LIFE PlanUp project focuses on five EU Member States: Spain, Italy, Poland, Romania and Hungary. PlanUp closely tracks the […]
43% of the European population lives in condominiums/multi-occupancy apartment blocks, which are primarily of low energy performance. How can cities accelerate the energy retrofitting of these buildings?
MEDNICE bundles the experience of 10 projects that were funded in the framework of the same Interreg Mediterranean programme. They all tackled the same challenge: In the Mediterranean area cooling (and heating) as well as low building standards induce high consumption and expenses. And this, even though a wealth of natural resources and a conducive climate do provide excellent conditions for greening residential and public buildings.
What is a Directive without a proper implementation? Energy Efficiency Watch 3 (EEW3) monitors how Member States translate the European Energy Efficiency Directive into impacting […]
The Display Campaign is the first and most widespread European Campaign to encourage municipalities to publicly display environmental performances of their municipal buildings. More than 13,000 buildings are labelled with the Display poster showing their energy and water performances as well as green house gas emissions.
The progRESsHEAT project aims at assisting local, regional, national and EU political leaders in developing policy and strategies to ensure a quick and efficient deployment of renewables in the heating and cooling networks.
Through projects Energy Cities challenge the way we deal with energy in all spheres of a city. They are a great opportunity to fund unheard-of urban practices and to experiment with other cities. The successful solutions that our projects produce are blueprints for peers facing similar challenges. Participation of cities in EU-funded projects is also essential to demonstrate policy-makers how the locally-based energy transition can be a reality.
