LEMON Project - Italy
The LEMON project was developed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight energy poverty through the energy conversion of existing social housing. It focuses on increasing the energy efficiency of buildings while looking to improve housing quality. LEMON works on a portion of the social housing building stock of the Emilia-Romagna region, with the ambition to become a replicable best case for the entire region and other European countries.
ORFEE Project - France
ORFEE (Office for Renovations and Financing for Energy Efficiency) is a European H2020-funded project that developped the first four French third-party financing companies. Its objectives are to strengthen their activity as technical and financial assemblers for the renovation of residential buildings and:
- Respond to the need for supporting households in carrying out energy-efficient renovations
- Accelerate the financing through third party financing. Through the implementation of the ORFEE project, 7 third party financing companies have recently been created by French Regional and Metropolitan Councils.
SCORE Project - Europe
SCORE is funded by the European Union under its HORIZON 2020programme, facilitating consumers to become (co-)owners ofrenewable energies. The project took place in different cities in:
- Susa Valley, Italy (Biomass)
- Prague, Czech Republic (Solar PV)
- Essen, Germany (Solar PV)
The participating local and regional authorities as well as existinglocal energy projects receive legal and technical assistance for atailor-made participation model. Renewable Energy Clusters (RECs) can be seen as the prototype governance model of an emergingform of energy systems and will typically include demand flexibilityand energy efficiency (EE) measures, storage and peer-to-peertrading within energy Communities, and between energycommunities and the market.
Municipality of Radlje ob Dravi - Slovenia
Energy performance contracting in the form of public private partnership model is well known to be used in public and private buildings. To be used in the building that is owned both by public and private partner is technically possible but needs more coordination and understanding for all partners. Municipality Radlje ob Dravi has decided to use EPC model in such building. Municipal administration with the help of energy agency was able to manage and coordinate the project implementation and they have successfully realized it. They have newly renovated building in the town centre used for library, shop and caffe.
