Being technical partner of the project, Environment Park was involved in providing energy audits for the buildings and has contributed to drafting the technical procurement documents, in particular those concerning the energy saving monitoring and verification plan.
Under project 2020TOGETHER, Environment Park visited the repurposed buildings. The inspection was carried out at the end of the work on the buildings in the municipalities of Bruino, Piossasco and Volvera and it confirmed the project’s success in promoting EPC contracts as a new way to create partnerships between public and private sector, with the aim of pursuing Europe’s energy efficiency goals.
