“POWER HOUSE Warm/Mediterranean TaskForce Seminar on low-energy buildings in Mediterranean countries” - 4-5 July 2013, Pisa, Italy

The purpose of the seminar was to strengthen the collaboration with other running EU-funded projects in the MED area (such as ELIH-MED, MARIE, Urban Empathy, RELS and CAT MED), in order to capitalise on them, develop synergies and make sure that the information available will be feeding the future work of the POWER HOUSE TaskForce on Warm/Mediterranean countries.

The meeting set also the basis for a discussion that will lead to the definition of a common Manifesto on how the Public, Cooperative and Social Housing sector intend nearly-Zero Energy homes in Mediterranean climates.

The seminar ended with the presentation of some exemplary low energy buildings in Spain and Italy, followed by a study visit to five public-owned low-energy housing projects in Pisa and Empoli area, run by APES Pisa and Publicasa.
