Replication of SHERPA methodology into local buildings

Published: 29/04/2020

SHERPA is an Interreg MED modular project that will contribute to speeding up the implementation of EU Directives on Energy Performance of Buildings (2010/31/EU) and on Energy Efficiency (2012/27/EU). Its main objective is to reinforce the capacities of public administrations at regional and sub-regional level to improve Energy Efficiency in public buildings (EEPB) in the Mediterranean area.

SHERPA is divided into two modules:

  • Testing module

A transnational, holistic and peer-to-peer model will be developed to produce 100 EEPB projects belonging to regional governments among the partner regions.

  • Transferring and capitalising module

Another 100 energy renovation of buildings (ERB) projects following this methodology will be carried out in buildings from partner regions’ municipalities. It aims to ensure that results from the testing module are transferred and capitalised to as many Mediterranean municipalities and regions as possible.

During the last phase of the SHERPA project implementation, the methodology defined for the development of Energy Renovation projects for regional Buildings was replicated on local buildings. The implementers who benefited from the SHERPA methodology were for the most part observers who followed the project from the beginning and participated, among others, in the regional capitalisation workshops organised in each pilot area (Emilia Romagna, Lazio, Abruzzo, Catalonia, Gozo, Dunea, Valencia, Crete).

This project has received funding from the European Regional Development Fund – ERDF programme.
