TIGER aims to create an innovative financing model, based on Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) and able to combine the numerous financial instruments available at national and regional level, such as POR (Regional Operational Programme), ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) funds, national incentives such as tax deductions (Ecobonus and Superbonus) and private funds. This will create a package of financial measures to support the ATERs in the energy renovation of buildings in the Abruzzo region by maximising energy savings in buildings.

In total, the project will involve more than 1,500 flats, with an estimated investment of almost 16.5 million euro, and about 20,000 tenants will be involved in communication activities.

The objectives of the project are:

  • Define and implement a single common standard for energy audits used by all five ATERs involved in the project.
  • Launch 5 sustainable energy efficiency projects (one for each ATER) for the energy requalification of 1529 private and public flats in 126 social buildings;
  • Adapt to the local context the EPTA (Energy Performance Tenancy Agreement) contracts already developed within the LEMON project;
  • Create a replicable model of the financing scheme that will be presented and disseminated through a series of events to national and European stakeholders.
  • Strengthen the capacities of the project partners regarding the operation of EPCs of ATER operators on energy management issues (25 operators) and on energy saving issues (10 operators), of tenants (100 households) on energy consumption and energy efficiency issues, and of stakeholders;
  • Improve awareness and knowledge of the tenants involved in the project on their energy consumption, needs and “energy-consuming” habits, involving at least 150 households in awareness raising and training activities
  • Combat energy poverty by involving more than 1500 vulnerable households in training and empowerment activities
  • Achieve a reduction in energy consumption in buildings of at least 33% and reduce CO2 emissions by 1,760 tonnes/year.
  • Create economies of scale and benefit from joint procurement by designing a single tender divided into five lots;
  • Implement an innovative financing scheme to bridge the gap between project development and financing by reducing the level of financial risk of redevelopment operations.
