Reaching new territories in the use of integrated management support tools for energy efficiency in Mediterranean public buildings
Duration of the project: 1.3.2021 – 30.6.2022
Lead partner: Valencia Institute of Building (Spain),
- ART-ER S. Cons. P.A. (Bologna, Italy), dealing with promotion of sustainable development
- Region of Western Greece
- Valencia Climate and Energy Foundation
- Elche City Council (Spain)
- Regional Development Centre Koper
Nine associated partners from Spain, Italy, Greece and Slovenia also take part in the project without their financial participation. The Municipality of Koper is the Slovene associated partner.
The IMPULSE PLUS project aims to transfer to new regions and cities the main outputs developed during the previous MED project IMPULSE. This includes the provision of support tools for the development of gradual renovation plans and financial planning for cost-optimal solutions for public building stocks. The transferring process will allow, on the one hand, to scale the scope of application in some of the countries previously involved in IMPULSE project (Spain, Greece and Italy) from smaller municipalities to bigger cities (such as Valencia in Spain), but also, from the local to the regional scale (Emilia Romagna Region in Italy and Western Greece). On the other hand, results will be transferred to a country that was not involved previously in IMPULSE (Slovenia).
Slovene pilot area is the Municipality of Koper where it has been planned to make a list of public stock that has to be refurbished, group the public building stock, test various renovation scenarios and prepare financial simulations. Scenarios will represent a basis for annual plans of building stock renovation. Consequently the Municipality earmarks yearly budget for this purpose. Elaboration of energy plans and investment documentation for some public buildings has also been foreseen. The investments will be financed from other sources as infrastructural works aren't eligible in the IMPULSE PLUS project.
