The following tool has been developed in the frame of the LEMON project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.

LEMON increased saving opportunities, improved housing space quality and created value for all the actors involved in the energy refurbishment of buildings: from people living in the dwellings to the technicians who manage and keep high building’s performances, from innovators to investors in the construction sector. LEMON focused on a portion of social housing located in the Emilia-Romagna Region and has the ambition to be replicated abroad.

On this page, one can find available tools for different profiles:

For tenants: EPTA literally means “Energy Performance Tenancy Agreementi” and is the lease with the rent reflecting the improvements realized and the consequent reduction in energy costs.

For policy makers: The EPC, the Energy Performance Contract, an agreement between beneficiary, in this case the ACERs, and supplier, such as an Energy Service Company (ESCo) in which the investments are repaid through the savings generated by increased energy efficiency of the housing.

For investors: LEMON will mobilise investments combining ERDF funds, National Energy Efficiency Fund financing, the national incentive called “Conto Termico” and loans, and in particular it will charge part of the investment on the rents according to the reduced energy costs for the tenants.
