Improving energy efficiency capacities in public buildings
Buildings in Mediterranean regions, and, in particular public buildings, represent one of the main sources of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions. The majority of such buildings requires heavy upgrading of isolation and cooling systems currently partly financed by national, regional and EU thematic programmes.
Projects co-funded by the Interreg MED Programme under this thematic must focus on increasing the capacity of public building owners and managers in the MED area to develop and implement energy efficiency practices.
What topics for efficient buildings?
Types of actions
Strategy building, capacity building, awareness raising, training and changing practices; Feasibility studies and analyses, elaborating policy plans, services and tools; Possibility for small-scale investments and pilot projects.
Key target groups
Public authorities, research structures, enterprises, NGO’s/civil society structures (end user role).
What results does the Programme target for 2014-2020?
- 5 available planning tools to monitor and manage energy consumption in public buildings
- 5 strategies supporting plans on energy consumption management for public buildings
- 570 target groups participating in capacity raising activities on energy efficiency for public buildings
- 176 regions and sub-regions engaged (through charters, protocols, MoU) in developing energy efficiency plans/strategies
