Description Of the Project
The building sector is the largest energy consumer in the Mediterranean area. Most buildings are energy inefficient as lack of interventions over time have led to increase annual energy consumption and CO2 emissions. To tackle these common challenges, SOLE supports cost-effective and innovative energy rehabilitations of public buildings. Through knowledge sharing on energy rehabilitation, the partners will define local plans adapted to each of the participating territories where pilot actions will be implemented. Besides these pilots, in order to reduce building energy consumption, SOLE will also intervene at two levels. First, by encouraging behavioral change in people, inspired by an Interreg experience (REBUS project). Secondly, by impacting on local policies through lobbying and advocacy to integrate the pilots´ results in relevant policy frameworks.
To develop joint strategies supporting cost-effective and innovative energy rehabilitations of public buildings in seven Mediterranean countries via pilot actions, by promoting technical knowledge sharing and capacity building for behavioural change to improve energy performance and developing local and joint policy recommendations for energy renovations of public building, replicable in other Mediterranean areas
