AFTER will participate directly in improving energy efficiency by 20% according to the target set for 2020 by the European Commission.
The objectives of the project are:
- Improving Social Housing Organisations’ awareness and knowledge on new and existing energy saving measures.
- Reducing the short-term energy consumption of buildings and improving management of operations and running maintenance.
- Increasing tenants’ involvement in reducing energy consumption thanks to a better adaptation of technical solutions to tenants’ behaviour.
- Developing the Social Housing Organization asset strategies linking energy efficiency and low-cost investment..
Focusing on these goals, AFTER works with participating companies and sets the target of
an immediate reduction of 3% to 7,5% of annual energy consumption – once construction or refurbishment of their buildings has been completed.
