Road Map

    ADRIA_Alliance “ADRIAtic cross-border ALLIANCE for the promotion of energy efficiency and climate change adaptation”

    Start date: 01/07/20

    End date: 31/12/21

    Duration (months): 18

    Total budget:  € 684.874,75

    Number of partners: 7

    Partners: Union of Municipalities of Grecìa Salentina (LP); LAG Molise Towards 2000 (PP2); ESCOOP European Social Cooperative (PP3); Malesi and Madhe Municipality (PP4); Municipality of Tuzi (PP5); FEDERESCO Italian Association of ESCos (AP6); Ministry of Economy of Montenegro (AP7);


    ADRIA_Alliance addresses challenges contained in PA3, in particular in the SO 3.2. The general objective of the project is to transfer know-how finalized to enable Partners with effective strategic planning and an extended governance model for the whole territories, aimed at energy efficiency and to safety of cities from the risks generated by climate change, following the CoM initiative. Project outputs will be the set-up of innovative business models which will benefit from know-how transfer; start-up of innovative enterprises, which will benefit from capacity building and training activities aimed to trigger successful access and positioning in RES market (through earned high skills in energy efficiency interventions and in the production of energy from RES); the implementation of small pilot projects for the efficiency of Partners’ public buildings; triggering of local micro-networks (smart-grids), on public buildings, for energy and data exchange. Pilot interventions will exploit their financial and environmental potential, allowing start-ups to verify and demonstrate their technical and organizational skills implementing such pilot actions. At the end of the project, Partners will increase their awareness in relation to the final uses of energy, the measurement and monitoring of achieved results, and will benefit from the realization of specific adaptation plans, aimed at ensuring the safety of urban environments. Project will adopt a SMART approach that will be capable of involving citizens and enabling SMEs from different countries to interact with each other to create synergies, exchanges of knowledge and opportunities for mutual collaboration: such results can be generated only through a cross-border project. Further added value is the partnership composition, designed to allow the joint cooperation between LAs, research centers, production districts, expertise networks, to allow the transfer of experience and the adoption of SMART governance methodology.
