Installation of pv panels by ASTERNational project
The initiative ALSTER includes 44 Flemish social housing providers (SHMs). The SHMs want to actively and structurally contribute to a better climate and combat energy poverty. With an investment of € 231 million, 647,767 solar panels will be installed on 58,433 buildings, representing a production of 207,286 MWh per year.
HHHH - Health Homes, Healthy PeopleNational project
The project aims to give people warmer safer and healthier homes this is done by offering advice support and referral options tailored to the needs of the household. Specific categories include energy-saving advice to fuel debt assistance, home safety advice to advice on benefit entitlement. All applicants have access to energy saving advice, smart meter advice, benefit entitlement advice, tariff switching service, carbon monoxide awareness, fire safety and smoke alarm advice. Additional services are available but are dependent on criteria such as age, vulnerability, if the resident receives particular other benefits and poor health.
HEEPS - Home Energy Efficiency Programmes Energy Efficient ScotlandNational project
Part of the Scottish Government funded Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland: Area Based Schemes (HEEPS:ABS) for South Ayrshire Council.
FIESTA - Families Intelligent Energy Saving Targeted ActionEuropean project
The project FIESTA aimed to support 5 local governments to support families to save energy at home, to adopt a more sustainable consumption behaviour, acting both on their energy consumption behaviour and on their purchasing decisions.
The project was designed to develop tailored solutions to energy poverty alleviation in order to reduce energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions in Romania. The goal of the project, was to deliver new insights and provide guidance on how to effectively integrate sustainable development strategies in local policy frameworks. The research, data analysis, and findings were presented to the local government in a policy paper and used to train the stakeholders at several workshops. These workshops brought together representatives from energy suppliers, local governments and academia to explore policy options and provide capacity building training.
EnerSHIFT - Energy Social Housing Innovative Financing TenderNational project
In the project EnerSHIFT, 44 public housing buildings in Liguria were renovated through innovative financing mechanisms. The energy audits needed for EnerSHIFT were carried out by the technicians of the four Ligurian social housing agencies. After receiving specialised training from IRE Spa, the technicians carried out more than 100 audits on their local Public Residential Buildings assets.
EnerGAware - Energy Game for Awareness of energy efficiency in social housing communitiesEuropean project
The EnerGAware project's main objective was to decrease energy consumption and emissions in an affordable housing pilot and increase the affordable housing tenants’ understanding and engagement in energy efficiency. The EnerGAware project developed and tested, in 100 affordable homes, a serious game that was linked to the actual energy consumption (smart meter data) of the game user’s home and embedded in social media and networking tools. The EnerGAware solution provided an innovative IT ecosystem in which users could design their own virtual home and Avatar and learn about the potential energy savings, from installing energy-efficiency measures and changing user behaviour, whilst maintaining the comfort of their Avatar.
The aim was to revitalise an ageing district by improving the quality of life of its residents through three actions: (1) Energy renovation of the buildings in the district, including their thermal envelopes; (2) The renovation of the old district heating systems in the neighbourhood to improve their performance; (3) The creation of a new district heating network, where heat is generated from biomass to supply the whole neighbourhood.
ECO2 Energy Conscious ConsumersEuropean project
Energy Conscious Consumers ECO2 facilitated a large amount of consumers to become conscious about and improve their energy efficiency. It offered them two forms of learning: online e-learning, or transformative group learning, in which the e-learning system supported the group processes. Together the two – single or group processes - provided attractive approaches for a wide array of consumer segments.
Collective self-consumption community in the municipality of ScandianoNational project
The initiative involves the renovation and upgrade of 48 homes that are becoming almost self-sufficient, thanks to the integration of a photovoltaic system with a storage system to provide energy for the homes and a “condominium fleet” of electric vehicles. The project aims to reach around 62.000 KW self-consumed energy per year, allowing the residents to reduce their carbon footprint but also their energy bills, since they need to withdraw 60% less energy from the grid. The project also makes sure the benefits are shared equally among all the residents
