The EURONET 50/50 MAX starts from the experience gathered in many German schools and from the pilot test carried out in 50 schools in various European countries during 2009‐2012 (Euronet 50/50 project). Now, the new project transfers the 50/50 methodology, already used and proven, to 500 schools (both primary and secondary) and to 48 municipal facilities spread over the different countries of the project.
This is a way of extending the European network of schools and other public buildings in favour of energy savings and the fight against climate change.
Providing the 50/50 e-pack including a set of methodological and educational materials & tools
Organising trainings for local authorities, schools and non-school public buildings involved in the project.
Creating team works between “experienced” and “learning” schools.
Running the 50/50 network aiming to boost relationships and exchange of experiences and ideas between schools and other buildings applying the 50/50 concept.
New methodological and educational materials and tools are developed to support implementation of 50/50 methodology in schools and non-school buildings.
500 schools and nearly 50 other public buildings join the 50/50 network and apply energy-saving measures.
Minimum energy-savings achieved in each building involved reach 8%.
Financial benefits resulting from implementation of energy- saving measures are equally shared between buildings’ users and local authorities covering their energy bills: 50% of the savings is returned to building’s users through a financial pay-out and 50% is a net saving of the local authority.
50/50 concept is widely disseminated influencing at least 100 local strategies, 16 regional strategies and 13 national strategies.
