Share this Post:

The ZEMedS School Technical & Financial Toolkit was developed in the framework of the Zero Energy MEDiterranean Schools (ZEMedS) Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) project by the joint collaboration of the Project’s Consortium to:


  • facilitate the understanding of design and construction decisions on the rising cost of energy; 
  • set up a common nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (nZEB) strategy; and
  • analyse the available funding resources.



The main aim of the toolkit is to assist energy managers, regional public institutions, decision-makers, building designers, contractors and other professionals at different stages of their activity relating to systematic energy management in buildings, to implement nZEB renovation initiatives at schools.



The Toolkit, incorporates detailed information on the benefits, technical strategies, available technologies, regional perspectives, public and private funding mechanisms and best practice studies on nZEB renovation of schools.



This Toolkit has been created as an interactive PDF, which allows the user to easily navigate through the document and its external information sources, by using embedded links. It is available in English, Italian and French at:
