Addressing poor energy performance of public buildings is at the core of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive and Energy Performance Building Directive. It is also becoming a growing financial issues for central European countries. To address this issue eCentral will support key stakeholders in better understanding benefits of Nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB). The project will prove that the nZEB approach, is not only innovative, but also an optimal
and cost-effective solution for renovating and constructing public buildings by putting into test various financial instruments. The project aims to capitalise on results of previous and ongoing EU initiatives and to develop an energy performance certificate platform for public authorities for deployment and promotion of innovative financing schemes but also serving as a backbone for conducting future nZEB projects.
More information will follow in June 2017.
