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. The directive requires that all new public buildings have to be nZEB from 2019 onwards

In order to address this issue, eCentral project had the objective to raise awareness and motivate public authorities to to aim for more ambitious energy renovation standards of buildings and to test the applicability of three innovative financing models in pilot regions.

We developed 5 innovative tools and guidelines for municipalities to support these projects. We organized 13 training programmes for local/regional authorities in Croatia, Hungary and Slovenia, 4 strategies and action plans and 3 pilot studies to test the applicability of innovative financing models.

THE PROJECT OBJECTIVES

  • 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
