Buildings account for approximately 40% of final energy consumption.
Investing in energy efficiency measures in buildings can therefore generate substantial energy savings, while also supporting economic growth, sustainable development and job creation. A greater use of energy-efficiency measures and technologies, combined with renewable energies, are cost-effective ways to enhance the security of our energy supplies.
Ongoing activities of our projects include:
Solutions created by Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE projects include:
► Collection of best practices, strategies, action plans and various tools for increasing energy efficiency
► Application for calculating energy savings and reductions of CO2 emissions
► Assessment tool for public investments
► Roadmap for financing energy efficiency actions
► Platform for designing and financing projects for nearly zero energy public buildings
► Guidelines for integrating dynamic lighting into public lighting systems
► Tool for measuring the energy self-sufficiency of houses
► Tool for calculating the optimal size of a photovoltaic and a battery energy storage system
► Measures to promote wastewater as a source of renewable energy
► Resources for the use of shallow geothermal energy for heating, cooling or seasonal heat storage
► Learnings from piloting energy storage in city centres
