Andalusian Energy Agency wins EU Regiostar Awards 2022 for 'energy efficiency in buildings' project
10 November 2022
EXCESS partners from the Andalusian Energy Agency-AEA (Spain) and their Sustainable Construction Programme in Andalusia (PICSA) awarded at the EU REGIOSTARS AWARDS 2022 on 17 November in Evora, Portugal. The Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, Elisa Ferreira, handed the awards to the three winning projects selected via a public vote. The annual awards, promoted by the European Commission, recognise the most innovative projects in the use of European cohesion funds.
The PICS project was recognised for its contribution to reinvigorating the building sector in Andalusia. The project introduced energy saving measures and increased the share of renewable energy in existing buildings, thereby also improving the competitiveness of local construction companies and reducing energy poverty among low-income families.
The work on the EXCESS project has contributed to PICSA with EXCESS partners currently working closely with the AEA on the EXCESS plus-energy demonstration building. The building is one of four demonstration buildings in which innovative yet cost-competitive building technology packages will be developed and tested for different climates.
