SUPER-i - PPP Financing for energy efficiency investments in social housingNational project
The SUPER-i project will contribute to generate substantial investments in energy efficiency within the social housing sector by establishing a direct dialogue, at local government level, between financial institutions, other private investors and social housing managers while also involving ESCOs (Energy Service Companies).
SMARTER4EU - SMARTER Finance for EUNational project
Smarter Finance for EU aims to accelerate the roll-out of certified green homes across Europe – including the development and adoption of over €100bn worth of green mortgages, loans and development finance. Led by Habitat for Humanity, the project’s energy poverty element will aim to improve the health and comfort, financial stability, and energy performance of very low income, vulnerable households. It will also facilitate European and global discussions on what knowledge and lessons learned can be shared when implementing solutions that combine government incentives with private bank financing.
DoppelPlus offers volunteer climate and energy coaches who work with on-site coaching sessions for households and use so-called starter packages. The project relies on easy-to-implement behavioural changes that improve people´s quality of life and enable them to make a contribution to society.
Xarxa per una Transició Energètica Justa (XTEJ)National project
The «Xarxa per una Transició Energètica Justa» in Castelló aims to mobilise the different groups that make up the ecosystem of community based organisations of the city to make the social problems associated with the climate and energy crisis visible. It also aims to promote a new energy culture that contributes to reducing energy vulnerability of families through a fair energy transition.
Energia in Periferia (Energy in the suburbs)National project
Banco dell'energia receives funds from private donors which ask to develop the project "Energy in the suburbs" in a precise city. Banco dell'energia identifies the non-profit organisations deeply rooted in the city of interest and able to take an active part in the project. Their role is to identify the beneficiaries (vulnerable families in energy poverty), to pay them energy bills through the funds received by Banco dell'energia and to do a timely report of payments. Moreover, the non-profit organisations, with the support of Banco, carry out the activity of energy education and data collection through the professional figures of TEDs. One or more scientific partners analyse the data collected in order to issue specific reports on Energy Poverty.
Comunità Energetica di Roveri e Plastro - Green Energy Community (GECO)National project
The Green Energy Community (GECO) is a demonstration project in the Pilastro – Roveri district of Bologna. It comprises the creation of an energy community, an entity introduced by the EU Clean Energy Package (CEP). The GECO project intends to tackle social, technical and economic aspects related to the creation of the green energy community in order to increase sustainability, reduce energy poverty and generate a low carbon economic cycle. The project is carried out by AESS, ENEA, UNIBO, CAAB/FICO and Agenzia Pilastro, with the Emilia Romagna Region, GSE, RSE, City of Bologna, local associations, businesses and citizens and with the financial support of EIT Climate-KIC.
Generació DonesNational project
Generació Dones is an innovative job placement plan aimed at promoting the energy rehabilitation of buildings and energy efficiency, aimed at unemployed women in Barcelona. The objective is the promotion of female employment in a highly masculinized sector such as construction and renewable energies through a transferable and replicable pilot proposal that, on the one hand, breaks with the sector's horizontal segregation, and on the other, that it can contribute to the investment in rehabilitation and energy efficiency coming from the European Next Generation funds having an impact on the groups that require it most, and specifically, on women.
Healthy Homes InitiativeNational project
The Healthy Homes Initiative programme managers at the Ministry of Health are helped by other government agencies, or middle actors in the community to identify eligible families, with the aim to carry out a comprehensive housing assessment by certified Home Energy Performance Advisors, and devise individualised action plans to help create warmer, drier, healthier homes.
EnergyMate is all about helping whānau get the most out of their electricity. For some, that’s a reduced power bill, for others, it’s a warmer, drier, healthier home. EnergyMate is delivered through in-home coaching and community hui by EnergyMate coaches. All EnergyMate coaches are community-based financial mentors who are trained through an energy hardship training module to equip them to provide education and support. Following the success of the initial pilot in 2019, EnergyMate is operating in 13 locations across Aotearoa, and to date has supported almost 1,000 households with energy advice and targeted support.
RETE ASSISTNational project
RETE ASSIST is an Italian network of operators and stakeholders working on energy poverty. It was created to consolidate, strengthen and carry on the work started within the European ASSIST project. It proposes a multi-level approach in line with the need for a holistic solution to deal with complex and multidimensional problems that embrace aspects ranging from social to technical. It addresses both operators (physical persons) and public and private actors (legal persons) working on the ground to tackle energy poverty. The underpinning concept of RETE ASSIST is to empower all actors and facilitate the flow of information between them.
