"POWER HOUSE Warm/Mediterranean TaskForce Workshop & Study visit" - 13-14 February 2014, Barcelona, Spain

On the 13th February 2014, the members of the nearly-Zero Energy Challenge Warm/Mediterranean Climates TaskForce met in Barcelona to discuss about tools available to finance energy efficiency in social housing.

The first part of the event (attended by some 90 participants) was mainly dedicated to the opportunities offered by the EU, particularly by the Structural Funds for the new programming period 2014-2020 as well as by other supporting schemes and programmes in place, including the Horizon2020 Call for Proposals recently launched. The second part focused on the schemes used in Spain, France and Italy with some concrete example of large refurbishment and new-build projects.

The Workshop was followed by a study visit to three housing projects managed by the Patronat Municipal de l’Habitatge de Barcelona (PMHB): “Roc Boronat” (95 dwellings - building connect to the first district heating/cooling network “Districlima”), “Can Cortada” (160 dwellings - energy classification B) and “Trinitat Nova” (refurbishment project of 180 dwellings).
