ENEF- Central Baltic Cooperation in Energy Efficiency and Feasibility in

Published Jan 08, 2014

ENEF seeks to develop national and international networks to transfer practices and tools for calculating energy efficiency. The impact of different architectural or technical solutions in the planning stage on practical level (urban planners, architects, building companies and real-estate owners will be analyzed. ENEF is a Central Baltic project financed by the European Regional Development Fund

Europe faces a great challenge in going from the use of fossil fuels to renewable energy sources and increasing the energy efficiency in the existing housing stock.

ENEF is a Central Baltic INTERREG IVA Project that started 1 January 2011 and will run until end of 2013. The project budget is 951 860 €.

The general objective of the project is supporting spatial planning and environmental management in Estonia, Finland, Latvia and Sweden.

The specific objectives of ENEF are:

  • Develop a practical handbook of best practices in EST, FIN, SWE and LV how to increase energy efficiency in buildings also considering other values as architectural and cultural. The buildings to be investigated are publicly used buildings, mainly like schools, universities and libraries, and private residential apartment buildings built in 1960-1980. Examples of best practice from partnering countries and also other European countries will be included.
  • Develop national and joint networks to transfer innovative practices and tools of increasing the energy efficiency of buildings to regional and municipal planners, architects, engineers of construction companies, etc. within and among the participating countries.
  • Exchange and transfer experiences of the use of different computer programs for calculating energy efficiency or analyzing the impact of different architectural or technical solutions in the planning stage on practical level (urban planners, architects, building companies and real-estate owners.
  • Organize an International Conference and exhibition in 2013 to discuss and transfer results from the project.
