POWER HOUSE nZEC is an initiative coordinated by HOUSING EUROPE:

Established in 1988, Housing Europe is the European Federation of Public, Cooperative & Social Housing - a network of 42 national and regional federations which together gather about 41.400 public, social and cooperative housing providers in 18 countries. Altogether they manage over 25 million homes, about 12% of existing dwellings in the EU.

Social, public and co-operative housing providers have a vision of a Europe which provides access to decent and affordable housing for all in communities which are socially, economically and environmentally sustainable and where everyone is enabled to reach their full potential.

POWER HOUSE nZEC is partner of:

The BUILD UP initiative is designed to promote existing knowledge, guidelines, tools and best practices for energy-saving measures in buildings across Europe. At the same time, it informs and updates the market about the legislative framework in terms of goals, practical implications and future revisions.

The Covenant of Mayors is the mainstream European movement involving local and regional authorities, voluntarily committing to increasing energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources on their territories. By their commitment, Covenant signatories aim to meet and exceed the European Union 20% CO2 reduction objective by 2020.

What is Intelligent Energy-Europe about?

Faced with unprecedented energy challenges, the European Union is committed to its "3 times 20 target" – 20% less greenhouse gases, 20% better energy efficiency, and a 20% share of renewables - to build a secure and cleaner energy future.

Intelligent Energy-Europe comes in support of these objectives by tackling the "softer" factors: removing market barriers, changing behaviour, creating a more favourable business environment for growing energy efficiency and renewables markets, and making EU energy policies better understood in Europe's communities and regions.
