Approval of Funding from the Green Fund for the Proposal "Energy monitoring and calculation of carbon footprint of buildings and facilities in Municipalities"
We are pleased to announce the approval of the funding of the proposal entitled "Energy monitoring and calculation of carbon footprint of buildings and facilities in Municipalities", submitted by SUSTAINABLE CITY in the Financial Programme "Natural Environment and Innovative Actions 2019" of the Green Fund.
The proposal includes the development and installation, in selected Municipalities of SUSTAINABLE CITY, of a digital GIS platform, which will observe the carbon footprint and energy consumption of buildings and facilities, being an innovative tool for monitoring the infrastructure of Municipalities.
The implementation of this platform will improve the energy efficiency of buildings and facilities, helping Municipalities to design targeted interventions of either energy upgrade or energy management and reduce consumption, cost and carbon footprint, protecting the environment, promoting the sustainable development of their regions, as well as the long-term strategy of Greece and Europe to reduce gas emissions by 2050. In addition, it will strengthen and supplement existing Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans (SECAP) that are being developed in Municipalities, as well as those that are in the planning phase.
The development of this platform is attuned with all the activities of SUSTAINABLE CITY, which concern issues of Environmental Protection, Sustainable Development and Circular Economy, while supporting its members, to implement actions in these directions. The implementation of the proposal combines the main objectives of SUSTAINABLE CITY and will be a useful tool for promoting local strategies in favor of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.
