Objectives of the INNOVATE project

The main objective of the INNOVATE project is to develop and roll-out integrated energy efficiency service packages in 11 target territories.

Implementing energy retrofits of residential buildings involves a myriad of market players - construction companies, craftsmen, real estate agencies, financing institutions, consultants, energy auditors - who are not organised and coordinated so as to offer easy, global and guaranteed energy saving solutions to homeowners.

Cities and regions have the most accurate knowledge of the buildings, energy sources and people in their areas. They are in the most favourable position to develop together with their partners integrated energy efficiency service packages attractive for homeowners. Such a package should include:

  • Development of products adapted to consumers’ concerns
  • Targeted marketing & communication
  • Independent advisors who accompany homeowners through the renovation process from A to Z and guarantee its high quality at each stage: information > preparation > financing > implementation > monitoring of results.
  • Coordination of a chain of suppliers and contractors to deliver a global high quality solution to homeowners
  • Long-term and affordable financing.

What is Energy Cities doing in INNOVATE?

Energy Cities coordinates the project and is responsible for communication and dissemination of the project activities and results.
