Though achieving the largest energy efficiency improvement in recent years, the household sector is still responsible for a considerable share of energy consumption in Europe:  29% of final energy consumption takes place in the household sector, where heating and cooling account for around 66% of the total energy use at home, this becoming the largest energy expense for most families.

EMPOWERING is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme which contributes to the shift of seven EU regions toward low-carbon society by enhancing the capacities of municipalities and regional representatives to shape integrated energy strategies and plans. The project contributes to bridge the gap of skills needed to plan energy measures in the new 2030 framework for Climate and Energy Policy in terms of GHG emission reduction, renewable energy and energy efficiency.
