About the project
Territories surrounding the Mediterranean Sea face similar specific issues with the adaptation to mitigation of climate change, specifically regarding energy efficiency and renewable energy measures in public buildings. It is thus proposed that they work together on a strategy to capitalize on reference projects’ results. To do so, SEACAP 4 SDG will consider the Sustainable Energy Access and Climate Action Plans (SE(A)CAP) background, under a common vision, strategy and evaluation tool, to achieve Med SE(A)CAP integration through uniform adapted assessment and financing methods, for sustainable development goals in a smart society. SEACAP 4 SDG capitalizes on the outputs and outcomes of 10 projects, identifying characteristics to be generalized, and by adapting gained knowledge to maximize efficiency and effectiveness of energy refurbishment strategies adapted to local Mediterranean specificities, notably energy poverty. These outputs and outcomes will be implemented in 9 cities around the Mediterranean, selected using an approach developed under of the European City Facility initiative. Considering the Covid-19 pandemic and the global economic downturn, the project will focus primarily on education and health buildings.
