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 […]
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.
Objectives of the INNOVATE project The main objective of the INNOVATE project is to develop and roll-out integrated energy efficiency service packages in 11 target territories. Implementing energy retrofits of residential buildings involves a myriad of market players – construction companies, (…)
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?
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. The learning will empower them to make use of best practices in developing financing for these plans, which have been implemented successfully in other cities and regions in the EU. The specific objectives of PROSPECT are:
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.
As a so-called “horizontal project”, MEDNICE will be the overarching intiative that bundles 10 (modular) projects funded in the framework of the same Interreg Mediterranean programme.
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.
PUBLENEF (Support Public Authorities for Implementing Energy Efficiency Policies) is a Horizon 2020 project that will run for 36 months from February 2016. PUBLENEF addresses the […]
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.
