The kick-off meeting of the Efficient Buildings Community was held from February 26th to 27th, 2020, in Nice (France). The project belongs to the Interreg MED program, fostering low-carbon strategies and energy efficiency in specific MED territories.
The project aims at transferring and capitalizing solutions developed in >10 applied research projects, to facilitate the energy transition at a local level and help to define suitable policies.
In the MED area, most of public buildings are not adequately designed to reduce their energy consumption and improve their efficiency. This project will contribute to increase the capacity of owners and managers of public buildings to design and implement better energy efficiency practices.
The project started in November 2019 and will finish in June 2022. It is led by NICEC, and involves 7 additional partners including ENC, CMCC, University of Patras, CRES, ENEA, ADENE and IREC.
Jordi Pascual and Soledad Ibáñez from Thermal Energy and Building Performance group at IREC will provide their technical experience in the subject and will be in charge of the quality assurance and transferability of the project.
This project has received funding from the Interreg MED programme, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
