The project Retrofitting Social Housing and Active Preparation for EPBD (RESHAPE) is co-funded by the European Union under the Intelligent Energy-Europe Programme. RESHAPE is a common action of ten partners united in a consortium and co-ordinated by Ecofys (The Netherlands). It started in January 2006, with a duration of 30 months. The project intends to contribute to the implementation of the EU Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings (EPBD) and covers six pilot countries: The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Estonia, Czech Republic and Bulgaria. Through dissemination activities the project target area will be enlarged with Greece and Romania.
