RENOVERTY fosters energy efficiency building upgrades in rural energy-poor households located within Central Eastern, South Eastern and Southern European countries by establishing the methodological and practical framework to build renovation roadmaps for vulnerable rural districts in a financially viable and socially just manner.
Rural residents are facing three main energy poverty challenges:
- Building stock and infrastructure issues.
- Socio-economic inequality.
- Limited public participation and representation in labour market.
To address these challenges, RENOVERTY aims to:
- Promote the renovation of rural vulnerable districts and increase energy efficiency in 17 vulnerable rural areas in 7 regions by providing Renovation Energy Efficiency Roadmaps (REERs) according to the characteristics of the household and regions, with the collaboration of 12 Local Action Groups (LAGs).
- Provide comprehensive REERs according to the different geographical and social contexts, to scale results and to guide public actors to renovate rural vulnerable districts after the project ends.
- Empower all actors in rural areas in becoming involved in the process of renovating vulnerable districts/buildings by identifying barriers and co-designing activities with the collaboration of private and public sectors.
- Incorporate security, comfort, and improved accessibility in the roadmaps to further improve the quality of life of vulnerable populations.
Some concrete KPIs of the project include:
- 17 REERs in seven pilots located in Sveta Nedelja (Croatia), Tartu (Estonia), Bükk-Mak & Somló-Marcalmente-Bakonyalja Leader (Hungary), Zasavje (Slovenia), Parma (Italy), Coimbra (Portugal), and Osona (Spain).
- Primary Energy Savings of 5.39 GWh/year.
- Cumulative investments in sustainable energy triggered by project’s end amounting to 1,003,875 euro .
- 115 stakeholders trained by end of project.
- 1500 stakeholders reached by end of project.
