High energy efficiency schools in Mediterranean Area: Multi-issues platform as interactive Network for technical regulations management, technologies data base and best practice dissemination activity (Teenergy schools)
Start date: Apr 30, 2009, End date: Jun 29, 2011 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project is located in Italy, Greece, Spain and Cyprus and it aims at improving secondary existing schools energy efficiency, trough the implementation of a common Strategy based on the 3 typical climatic models that characterize the MED area: coast, mountain and city. The main activities are: - Realisation of Energy schools Audits, End users Surveys and Benchmark - Redaction of an Action Plan - Concept Design for 12 Pilot Projects, also through the organisation of 3 thematic workshops and 1 international Campus that involves experts, designers, students, enterprises and decision makers - Creation of a virtual platform that works as an interactive operational tool and will: provide information by which the energy schools performances can be compared; collect and catalogue laws, best practises and existing technologies; contain the Guidelines of the MED Strategy for energy management; be addressed to local authorities and decision makers, schools, technicians, private operators and all citizens interested in the construction sector and energy issues - Diffusion and capitalisation actions directed also to raise awareness on new energy techniques use, cost reduction and international standards and – in medium long term – to integrate and improve the energies policies and rules in the MED area and Europe The Pilot Projects necessarily refer to a local level as the main tools for testing and standardizing the transnational Strategy Achievements: State of the art of project implementation since the project startparticipation in KICK-OFF meeting in Lucca (July 2009)-Final conference(April2011) scientific coordination of 1 project brochure, 10 articles published on newspapers and specialized reviews Component 2: n.6 Steering Committees: Lucca (July2009)Limassol (Nov2009)Trapani (Feb2010)Granada (May2010)Athens(Dec2010) Lucca(Apr2011) Component 3: Energy Audit developed in all partners territory involving almost 100 high schools belonging: plane, hill, mountain.

Component 4: direction of CONCEPT DESIGN phase in collaboration with ABITA and elaboration of the final 12 Pilot Projects in collaboration with all partners during Campus in Athens. Awareness campaign towards end users (students and teachers) Component 5 - ICT PLATFORM coordination of scientific contents and communication activitiesNext key steps for the projectThe project has been given another 3month for the conclusion of all activities. An Italian version of the Action Plan will be elaborated by the Italian partners with the result of the school awareness campaign. The guidelines will be diffused by CD-ROM, representing an excellence for Mediterranean area as reference for best practice in high energy efficient refurbishing of existing schools and new school buildings. Active participation in the capitalisation process promoted by MED Programme.
