New video raises awareness of the importance of energy retrofits

Climate Alliance has just released a short film detailing the efforts of the network and nine partners across Northwestern Europe to encourage bottom-up approaches on energy retrofitting. “Such measures not only reduce emissions, they also increase comfort and lower energy bills – a huge plus for low income families!” highlights Svenja Enke, project coordinator at Climate Alliance. The video and the activities it highlights have been made possible the EU-funded Climate Active Neighbourhoods (CAN) project. The three-year initiative encourages residents in disadvantaged districts to take charge of their energy use and helps municipalities better support such local movements. This new video presents the role of peer-to-peer learning between the various European cities involved in the project and how this experience will benefit other municipalities in the future.
