Aims to promote step by step renovation with energy efficiency improvements to achieve nearly zero energy (nZEB) consumption in SPORT Buildings.
Other main aim is to Increase the energy certification of current Sport buildings, as well as to boost investments in Sport facilities in order to improve its energy efficiency and the use of Renewable energies.
In Europe, there are around one million and half sports facilities, which represents 8% of the overall building stock.
Most of them were built before 1980 and need refurbishment because no considerable changes have been made to the initial conditions.
The STEP-2-SPORT project aims to support the refurbishment of the existing sport buildings through step by step renovation towards Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB), contributing to the EU energy objectives.
The project covers the field Integrated Initiatives, focused on energy efficiency and renewable energy use in buildings.
