The Energy Smart Mediterranean Schools Network (ESMES)
Details

The Energy Smart Mediterranean Schools Network (ESMES) project focuses on the optimization of energy consumption in public schools through innovative, monitoring-based renewable energy and energy efficiency (REEE) pilot actions.  

 

 

The Energy Smart Mediterranean Schools Network (ESMES) project focuses on the optimization of energy consumption in public schools through innovative, monitoring-based renewable energy and energy efficiency (REEE) pilot actions in 5 involved countries: Italy, Spain, Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia. At the same time, the project will improve the capacity of 5 public institutions in order to implement innovative energy rehabilitations.  

 

Some of the expected achievement are listed below:

-          Set-up strategies to support efficient and cost-effective energy mix in public schools

-          Set-up national energy efficiency hubs among relevant stakeholders to enhance national cooperation on REEE.

-          Prepare REEE rehabilitation plans for public schools based on monitoring data and energy audits

-          Implement pilot REEE solutions in public schools with energy performance certifications

-          Run schools contests and increase awareness and better energy habits in schools through trainings and awareness activities
