GOAL: the economic situation is forcing public authorities to limit Energy Efficiency  investments in buildings and, as in Central Europe  there is a lack of uniformity in approaches and capacities to adopt Energy Efficiency solutions, our goal is to encourage Public Administrations  to improve Energy Efficicency in their buildings also by involving users in energy management.

METHODOLOGY: TOGETHER aims at changing the existing atomistic vision into a holistic vision of the buildings as a whole of functions and relationships between physical space, technological devices and users’ needs-behaviour. TOGETHER goes beyond isolated technical interventions by integrating them with financial/contracting and Demand Side Management tools such as the EPIC model (Energy Performance integrated Contract), which is based on technological devices and a behaviour-based component and a Building Alliance concept among buildings managers, owners and users.
