From November 2019, INTBAU Albania is lead partner of the ongoing project “Increasing civic awareness on standard energy efficiency measures in Albania”, a project funded and supported by IPA II European Union Integration Facility 2015. The overall objective of the action presented by INTBAU Albania is to address mainly the areas of energy efficiency in the residential sector in Albania, focusing on the building stock constructed before 2006 in Tirana, to increase the capacities of the civil society organizations and residents of Tirana on the energetic performance of the building stock in Albania and potential measures to be taken in accordance with the European Performance Building Directive and Energy Efficiency Directive and empower them to take action. Specific Objectives of the project:
To raise awareness and foster a better understanding of the European Union directives on energy performance in accordance with the EU Acquis and standards, using a simplified language, and enhance public debates on this matter, including the close involvement and dialogue with the CSOs and local residents in urban and suburban areas.
To increase the active involvement and capacities of civil society organizations about energy efficiency in EU legislation and potential financial resources.
To act as a mediator/facilitator in supporting a strong cooperation and active discussion between CSOs communities in the field, resident of Tirana, public institutions, as well as academia and media, resulting in developing a network of stakeholders, which can become important actors in the implementation processes of policies such as the National Plan of Energy Efficiency in Albania (2017-2020) and respective approved laws and regulations.
