Funded under the Interreg Central Europe programme
Promote the sustainable use of renewable resources and energy efficiency in rural regions
A rapidly growing world population and increasing energy consumption are leading to a continuous rise of greenhouse gas emissions. Resulting climate change and extreme weather events represent one of the greatest challenges in Europe. RURES sets to exploit the potential of renewable energies (RES) and energy efficiency (EE) in rural regions as they have a great potential for reaching energy autonomy. Within RURES local support group composed of all relevant actors will be established acting as a regional energy network for implementing energy efficiency plans.
Best-practices of alternative financing models for EE/RES measures will be researched and become the basis for new feasibility studies on how to implement energy efficiency plans. The calculator tool (for municipal taxes and other incomes) will highlight the importance of a community-oriented regional development and further underline the benefits and added value generated by exploiting EE/RES.
The calculator was completed as part of the RURES project.
