EDINA – Improving Energy Efficiency in Revitalisation

Promoting energy efficiency in Polish revitalisation areas by providing training to property managers and owners.


1,500 municipalities in Poland feature revitalisation programmes. These are affected by the recently adopted legislation that requires private and public refurbishments to meet sustainability standards. To implement climate-friendly refurbishments, municipality officials, property owners and property managers need to acquire additional knowledge and skills.

The project team provides the necessary capacities to embed climate action into municipal revitalisation programmes. Six training events for for private owners and representatives of public entities constitute the project’s main exercise. Furthermore, the project develops and energy efficiency toolkit and organises two workshops with practitioners and experts from Poland as well as a study tour to Germany to share expertise and best practice. The aim is to train at least 60 practitioners. This number constitutes the critical mass for further dissemination of the knowledge and skills, ensuring their application not only in Poland, but also in Lithuania, Latvia and Hungary.
