Less Energy More OpportuNities (LEMON)

Tags: Social housing

This project targets the energy retrofit of private and public dwellings in the social housing sector of two regions of Emilia-Romagna by establishing an innovative financing approach, which applies an energy performance contracting (EPC) model combined with a new "green lease" concept based on the improved energy performance of the housing units (Energy Performance Tenancy Agreement - EPTA). It envisages to trigger sustainable energy investments of €15.29 million in 622 dwellings.

Reduced Energy use And Change Habits (REACH)

This project contributed to energy poverty abatement at the practical and structural level by empowering energy poor households to take actions to save energy and change their habits, and by establishing energy poverty as an issue that demands structural solutions. In cooperation with social actors who helped to identify the energy poor households, energy advisors carried out 1,600 home visits and distributed tailor-made advice, and post-visit support to energy poor households. It was expected that REACH will achieve energy savings of nearly 300 toe/year.

Support Network for Household Energy Saving (ASSIST)

Tags: Energy audits

This project tackles energy poverty by creating specialised services through energy advisors. Selected energy advisors are given training, so that they can provide vulnerable consumers with advice and guidance on household energy efficiency, including efficient behavioral changes. 750 vulnerable consumers per country in 6 countries will be addressed with specific actions to reduce their energy consumption and an additional 2,000 vulnerable consumers will be provided with specific energy efficiency advice through the ICT platform of the network.

Trias Mores Energetica (TRIME)

Tags: Social housingEnergy audits

The TRIME project engaged social housing residents to empower and motivate them to save energy. The project centred on creating a model that recruits and trains tenants to be volunteer Energy Ambassadors who can provide energy saving advice to their friends and neighbours. Once the training is complete the social housing organisations support the energy advisors to find households interested in receiving energy saving advice and keep regular contact with them. The project ran in 5 countries (United Kingdom, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Belgium).
