The GENERATION project, ‘Green ENERgy AudiTIng for a LOw CarboN Economy’, was a 24 month project supported by the European Regional Development Fund through the POWER Programme. The project delivered a simplified tool for conducting building energy audits in the project partners’ regions.
Project partner organisations came from four regions;
- Instituto Andaluz de Tecnología (IAT) from Andalusia in Spain,
- the Environment Centre (tEC) from South-East England in the UK,
- Provincia Di Modena from Emilia-Romagna in Italy,
- Akademia Gorniczo-Hutnicza w Krakowie from Malopolska in Poland.
Participants played a central role in the exchange of best practice and knowledge in the field of energy audits, in order to create an innovative methodology for conducting a Simplified Energy Audit (SEA). The SEA tool is a more cost-effective method of assessing the performance of a building, leaving comprehensive audits only for those cases where they are truly necessary.
The completed tool has been tested by conducting at least 40 audits of public buildings, and a set of recommendations for the improvement of audit programmes and policies has been provided to local and regional bodies. Partners have conducted regional workshops, national and international conferences and capacity building seminars to enable interested parties to give input for the methodology and to benefit from project results.
