FEEDSCHOOLS (Financing Environment and Energy Efficiency development in Schools) aims at providing new solutions to Local Authorities (LA) both in technical and financial terms to implement Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) renovation activities in Central European schools. The project involves 11 partners from 7 countries (Italy, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Austria).
The innovative approach consists in developing a transnational and holistic support toolkit with 2 user friendly Apps (1 for energy efficiency and environmental evaluation and 1 for financing models) and a web database of innovative best practices for nZEB renovation; open lessons focused to behavioral change in schools, face to face and on-line trainings for LA/school staff. It will enhance capacities of the LA to improve their SEAPs, finance interventions, increasing the employment.
3 Pilots will be performed in six regions each consisting in at least 48 energy audits reviewed by an international technical team. Preliminary plans for NZEB renovation of existing schools will be drafted and will be reference models for the region, increasing the replicability of the project activities. The transnational and multidisciplinary expertise of the partnership will be a fundamental asset to consolidate the knowledge of local energy managers, LA/school technicians and put it into action.
The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), through the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE Programme.
The total value of the project is : 1.971.837,05 EUR, co-financed by EU funds 85%.
