Major reduction of energy use in non residential Buildings
This project aims to demonstrate that large scale energy performance improvements in existing non-residential buildings can satisfy profitability demands set by the building owner/investor and thus become a market driver for major refurbishment of existing buildings towards Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings.
This project, together with many other European energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, is supported by the EU’s Intelligent Energy-Europe programme.

Strategic objectives of the project
To considerably reduce the energy demand in the sector of existing non-residential buildings and thus contribute to European 20/20/20- target by 2020.
Through the activities undertaken in this project more building owners/investors, in public and private sector, are active in realizing major energy performance improvement in non-residential buildings.
Open new opportunities for property owners to carry out major energy performance improvement and thus work towards Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings.
Economically profitable solutions for investments for energy performance improvements in the non-residential building sector.
Increased awareness and competence among the different stakeholders.
