The Book of Recommendations proposes to social landlords and their partners to implement the current energy transition with innovative solutions as a legislative point of view, technical, economic and cultural development at national level but also at European level.
The description of the obstacles, and therefore, the proposal of the recommendations that are treated under the following three approaches:
• A legal and / or institutional approach when the blockage is more regulatory in nature or requires a modification of a legal text or involves a change in institutional practices;
• A technical, economic and / or financial approach where blocking is related to the need to use a given technique which involves an investment and, as a result, is subject to more or less favourable financial conditions which allow or not reimbursement of these investments;
• A social and / or cultural approach when the blocking is related to the lack of knowledge or lack of practice on the part of any stakeholders in the construction, real estate operation, technical management and / or behaviour of the tenants.


It can be useful the analysis of the recommendation treated in the Book before the reading of the Pedagogical Guide developed under the same project.  
In fact the Italian version is a single guide.
