The aim of the project, whose full name is “Improving energy efficiency through renovation”, is to help local governments to improve the energy efficiency of public buildings by designing a model “path for energy renovation of buildings” (GLV), including model solutions for planning, implementation and monitoring renovation works carried out in buildings belonging to the city / commune, as well as involving key stakeholders in the process.

The meeting was devoted to good practices in the field of energy renovation of public buildings and the Action Plan defining measures to improve and improve selected support instruments for this type of investment. In the afternoon part of the meeting, a study visit to Niepołomice was planned, which was an opportunity to get acquainted with the municipality’s activities in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.
