The public buildings sector has an enormous potential for energy savings. However, in the last years the retrofitting rate in the building sector has been far too low, and public buildings are no exception.
The activities of the ENERJ project aim at supporting local governments in achieving energy efficiency targets in their own municipal building stock through joint actions in a multi-level governance approach. Joint actions are intended as multiple local authorities joining forces for implementing their energy retrofit goals at centralised level, optimising resources and boosting effectiveness.
ENERJ focuses on the juridical, technical and economic conditions for successful joint actions, by raising consciousness as to their added value and proposing procedures for simplifying decision-making, designing and implementing pilot actions.
