To promote interest and participation in building renovation and in the creation of energy cooperatives, CONGREGATE project combines two distinctive actions.
First, it develops a communication strategy to support national building renovation strategies in Bulgaria, Croatia, and Romania and organises at least 28 events to promote this strategy. For each country, the project monitors and analyses how current renovation programmes impact residents’ energy and financial savings as well their behaviours and attitudes. Results from this study inform future national campaigns for civic engagement in building renovation programmes.
Second, the project promotes the establishment of public-private renewable energy cooperatives in Bulgaria, Greece, and the Czech Republic. To do so, it conducts three case studies per country and supports feasibility studies in the involved municipalities. The project then organises at least 19 events to raise awareness for the results of the studies.
