PROMISE – Promoting best practices to support energy efficient consumer behaviour on European island, Spain
While the EU may be made up of 28 Member States, the number of islands within the union runs into the thousands, dotted around the seas of the North Atlantic to the Mediterranean. While climate and cultures may vary, many of the issues faced by these islands – such as achieving energy efficiency – are much the same.
The Institute for the Diversification and Energy Saving (IDAE) has extensive previous experience in managing different aid programs for energy efficiency and renewable energy. Notable are the Action Plans of the Strategy for Energy Savings and Energy Efficiency, 2004-2012, as well as incentive programs on the purchase of an efficient electric vehicle, among others.
The Sustainable Construction Programme in Andalusia is a combination of economic measures (subsidies and incentives) and other actions such as regulatory, training and fiscal, that seek, through energy saving and energy, and renewable energy, to promote the energy rehabilitation of buildings, urban rehabilitation, improve the competitiveness of companies of the construction sector, create skilled employment and reduce
"This document is delivered according to project co-funded by the IEE, MESHARTILITY (measurement and data distribution utilities for the Covenant of Mayors).

The installation is equipped with a lighting control system “Smart” designed under the KNX standard, allowing to regulate the lighting system in an autonomous form.
LEAP (Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning System)- software tool for energy policy analysis and climate change mitigation assessment. LEAP is an integrated, scenario-based modeling tool that can be used to track energy consumption, production and resource extraction in all sectors of an economy.
It is a contract model for energy services and integral maintenance for buildings of public ownership. The aim is to promote efficiency in the final energy use in the buildings of the government and overcome the legal, administrative and technical barriers encountered by the public administrations in contracting these type of energy services.
The purpose of this guide is to promote and disseminate the technology of district heating and / or cooling networks, as well as to advise the potential promoters of this type of installations from a methodology that establishes the criteria that should be considered when designing a district network. In addition to this "basic guide", the Integrated Guide for the development of district heating and cooling networks has been developed.
Technical guidelines on Energy efficiency in lighting in different type of buildings: offices, educational centers and hospitals.
