ENVIROS participates in an international project FeedSchools - Enviros
ENVIROS participates in a new international project, which aim is to provide local authorities with new solutions, both technical and financial, which will help them to implement ‘nearly Zero Energy Building’ (nZEB) renovation activities in schools.
In Central Europe, large parts of the existing building stock were built before 1970 and as a result, performance is not in line with required energy efficiency standards. Renovation of buildings emerges as an urgent issue but while incentives are provided to private investors, public building renovation is more difficult as local authorities face significant limitations of budget. Another barrier is the lack of knowledge of performance/cost characteristics for efficient renovation of buildings.
The innovative approach of FeedSchools project consists in development of a transnational and holistic support toolkit and a web database of innovative best practices for nZEB renovation. At least 48 energy audits will be implemented and preliminary plans for nZEB renovation of existing schools will become a reference models for the region. Finally, FeedSchools will also provide open lessons focused on behavioural change in schools.
The project is implemented by partners from seven EU countries: Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia. Some cities, in which the project will be implemented, are also involved as direct project partners; these are Udine (Italy), Warsaw (Poland), Split (Croatia) and Bistrica (Slovenia).
Project is financed from Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE programme and lasts from 01/09/2017 to 31/08/2020.
