Residential Renovation towards nearly zero energy CITIES
A social housing district with poor insulation, a municipality that is meeting a long-standing demand by residents while transforming the area into a model for eco-sustainability
Saving money by cutting the energy consumption of buildings is not strictly a question of technology. People need hard data to be convinced of the positive financial implications
Retrofitting a district is quite different from retrofitting a single building: the technological challenges involved are far greater.
A residential energy-saving retrofitting program adopts strategies to convince local inhabitants of its benefits.
This progress meeting, led by coordinator Rubén García from Fundación CARTIF, and hosted by Genoa Municipality, marked the end of the first year of R2CITIES.
Between 16 and 20 June, R2CITIES partner, Genoa Municipality played host to over ten events, not including several satellite events, designed to pave the way forward for green urban policy
New technologies and energy management could soon lead to sustainable cities.
Solutions to halving energy consumption, costs and greenhouse emissions in cities may be on the horizon, as long as partners find suitable ways to cooperate.
R2CITIES partner, Genoa Municipality, is gearing up to stage its Smart Week from 16 to 20 June this year. The week’s agenda will feature a series of high-level events bringing together experts, stakeholders, and authorities from across Europe.
