Unione Reno-Galliera’s pathway within STEPPING PLUS

7 Municipalities of the Unione Reno Galliera, in the province of Bologna, thanks to STEPPING PLUS project, are getting technical assistance by AESS in order to deliver in next Spring an Investment Plan EPC-oriented.

After several online and in person meetings in the last months between AESS staff and representatives of each of the 7 Municipalities engaged within the STEPPING PLUS project, a timeline of activities has been shared.

14 buildings (schools, sport centres, City halls, etc) have been definitely selected and related energy audits are now in progress and expected to be finalised by the end of January 2022.

Thanks to the results provided by the energy audits, AESS will deliver by the end of April an EPC Investment Plan for the energy retrofit of those concerned public buildings.

The aim through the STEPPING PLUS Investment Plan is to launch a related EPC call for the 14 public buildings before the next thermal season.

Relevant public grants – expected to come also from the national Recovery and Resilience Plan – will be also integrated into the Investment Plan in order to support the investment by the awarded ESCO.
