Green for Households 2: continuing support to make Slovakia’s homes greener

Running from 2019 to 2023, Slovakia’s EU-funded Green for Households 2 project follows on from the Green for Households pilot project, which was implemented during 2015-2018, also with EU funding. The second project provides around EUR 48 million of financing for the installation of small renewable-energy devices on residential buildings in all regions of the country, except the Bratislava region. This will reduce environmental burdens and household bills. In parallel, Green for Households 3 covers the same period and has a budget of EUR 45 million.

A bright future for Valencia’s high schools thanks to energy-efficient lighting

A high school in Valencia, Spain, replaced its obsolete and energy-intensive lightbulbs and fluorescent tubes with light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Sensors were installed that automatically regulate the brightness of the LEDs according to the level of ambient light. The project allowed the school to reduce its energy consumption by 58.8 KW/year and its emissions by 15.7 tonnes of greenhouse gas equivalent per year, far exceeding what was forecast.
