PROMOTING ENERGY EFFICIENT PUBLIC BUILDINGS IN CENTRAL EUROPE 


Addressing poor energy performance of public buildings is at the core of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive - EED and Energy Performance Building Directive - EPBD, but it is also becoming a growing financial issue in central European countries. In order to address this issue, eCentral will support key stakeholders in better understanding benefits of nZEB - Nearly Zero Energy Buildings. The project will prove that the nZEB approach, although innovative, is an optimal and cost-effective solution for the renovation and construction of public buildings.


The project aims to


  • capitalise on results of previous and ongoing EU initiatives
  • develop an Energy Performance Certificate - EPC Tool for public authorities
  • deploy and promote innovative financing schemes
  • develop training programmes
  • assist nZEB projects
  • develop building renovation strategies
  • establish cooperation with scientific institutions and other nZEB initiatives
