The EDINA Project Summarised in 8 Videos

by Emilia Grotowska, „EDINA – Energy-efficient development of special revitalisation zones and urban areas”.

In the past two years, the EUKI-funded project EDINA promoted energy efficiency in Polish revitalisation areas by providing training to property managers and owners. At the final project stage, the EDINA project team shares its experience through 8 summarising videos. The project was carried out by the Institute of Urban and Regional Development together with two partners: Energy Conservation Foundation (FPE) and Housing Initiative for Eastern Europe (IWO e.V.)

From the outset, the project involved the sequential holding of information meetings, workshops, and pilot training courses to support efficiency improvements in private buildings in Special Revitalisation Zones. As a result of these activities, a variety of so-called guideline tools were developed, including a study entitled „Improving the energy efficiency of residential buildings in revitalisation areas – Toolkit”, training materials, including audiovisual (podcasts), and guides on the use of municipal subsidies for energy improvements in buildings in Special Revitalisation Zones. The project also developed an energy efficiency calculator, based on the financial efficiency calculator, which is a product of the pilot project on revitalisation in Walbrzych. Both the Toolkit and the energy efficiency calculator are now available on our project website under the Toolkit tab.

The methods and products developed was disseminated to private and public entities in Poland as well as Lithuania, Latvia, and Hungary. The project will contribute to increasing the competence of recipients to use appropriate tools to improve the energy efficiency of buildings in the private sector, including buildings with complex ownership.

The videos summarising the EDINA project are available here!
