Accompany cities in energy strategy (ACCENT)

Tags: Area-based targetingMunicipalities

In this project, a tool is developed that will allow local public administrations to define energy strategies at city scale based on the estimated energy consumption of the buildings. The tool will enable the city to locate areas where buildings have low energy efficiency and those areas where there is a high percentage of domestic energy poverty.

Building retrofit potential (ENERFUND)

Tags: Area-based targetingMunicipalities

This project is developing a tool that will rate and score deep renovation opportunities – like a credit score used by banks to rate clients. The tool will be based on a set of parameters such as EPC data, number of certified installers, governmental schemes running, etc. When used by municipalities, this can be used e.g. to prioritise the most energy inefficient buildings for retrofitting.

Calculating and Operationalising the Multiple Benefits of Energy Efficiency in Europe (COMBI)

The improvement of energy efficiency in Europe aims at reducing overall energy consumption. The implementation of energy efficiency measures can have other “non-energy” socio-economic and environmental effects such as effects on energy poverty, which will be quantified in this project. The main outcome will be a web based tool with statistics and graphical analysis of data in all member states.

Consumer empowerment in a smart meter world (SMART-UP)

Tags: Smart metersVulnerabilityEnergy audits

The SMART-UP project encourages the active use of smart meters and in-home displays by vulnerable consumers to change their energy behaviour. Social workers and other frontline staff have been trained to advise and empower vulnerable households to become more energy efficient. The target is to engage 5,000 vulnerable households in total.

Energy Social Housing Innovative Financing Tender (EnerSHIFT)

Tags: Social housing

EnerSHIFT (H2020 694816) aims at launching 14,59 million € of energy investments with the retrofitting of around 43 social housing buildings throughout the 4 provinces of Liguria. The scope of social housing in Italy is quite narrow and addresses the most vulnerable part of the population. Therefore project activities can be considered relevant for energy poverty.
