REBUS – Renovation for Energy efficient BUildingS

The REBUS – Energy Efficient Renovation project (ID: PGI01482) funded by INTERREG EUROPE Progamme aims to increase the capacity of authorities / public institutions in the participating European regions to effectively renovate the public buildings / institutions they manage, resulting in significant energy savings and more efficient use of public funds.

By participating in the project, the municipalities and public institutions of the Northern Hungary region are given the opportunity to plan and implement energy investments more effectively, and thus to a greater extent, by getting to know the best practices of the most developed regions in the energy field (e.g. the municipality of Malmö, Sweden) and their potential adoption. They can contribute to the achievement of the targets set in the European Union’s Energy Strategy for 2030 as soon as possible.

Relevant employees of local governments and public institutions can participate in high-level training, study tours, knowledge café events and peer-learning activities, supported by the project, thus providing individual and collective professional capacity building (from both foreign and policy aspects) that can be integrated to their daily activities, thus resulting in a more efficient workflow. As a result of the project, local action plans will also be developed, the implementation of which is also supported by the project.

The project supports authorities with concrete tools and action models for planning, implementing and monitoring public buildings energy renovations.
