Climate Active Neighbourhoods (CAN)

Energy retrofits of existing residential areas make an important contribution to achieving EU goals on CO2 emissions. Since 2016, the Climate Active Neighbourhoods project has been increasing the capacity of municipalities to implement their climate action strategies more effectively using a neighbourhood approach. Residents of deprived areas are empowered to take initiative and act for climate locally mainly thanks to energy-improved households, a key factor to reduce energy poverty.
