The project SECURE (Smarter Energy Communities in Northern & Arctic Regions) aims to foster energy-secure communities through the promotion of energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions.
It will achieve this by transferring and implementing innovative energy solutions for housing and public infrastructures in seven regions across the Northern Periphery and Arctic programme area.
Stakeholders will study effective technologies and good practice approaches that promote the increased use of energy efficiency and renewable energy resources.
The project has ambitious targets to meet which will be achieved with the following outputs:
- 5 Smarter Energy Communities: Five regions will establish a Smart Energy Community in a village, rural area or neighbourhood. A programme of activities will be completed in these communities to engage and empower citizens to become energy leaders. This programme will also build up local authority expertise.
- 15 energy solutions applied: The five Smarter Energy Communities will be supported by the implementation of fifteen energy solutions which retrofit twenty-four houses.
- Increase efficiency by 5% in at least 3 public buildings: The partners will transfer and implement measures which increase energy efficiency by 5% in at least 3 public buildings.
- Install alternative energy sources in 3 public infrastructures: The partner will install alternative or renewable energy solutions in public infrastructure across five regions.
