|Subprogram||Fostering low-carbon strategies and energy effiency in specific MED territories|
The main territorial challenge is to accelerate the implementation of EU Directives regarding the existing stock of Mediterranean public buildings, given the specific conditions and difficulties related to EEB projects in the MED area and the associated potential of energy saving.

Replication of SHERPA methodology into local buildings
During the last phase of the SHERPA project implementation, the methodology defined for the development of Energy Renovation projects for regional Buildings was replicated on local buildings. The implementers who benefited from the SHERPA methodology were for the most part observers who followed the project from the beginning and participated, among others, in the regional capitalisation workshops organised in each pilot area (Emilia Romagna, Lazio, Abruzzo, Catalonia, Gozo, Dunea, Valencia, Crete).

SHERPA Final Event was held in Brussels on 22th January 2020 at the European Committee of the Regions. Read more about the event.
All the results and tools presented during the event are available on SHERPA Capitalisation Platform and on the set of toolkits that host useful information, available for Regions, Municipalities and other stakeholders interested in buildings’ energy renovation (ERB).
SHERPA gathers 12 partners, including 9 regional authorities, as well as 12 associated partners, including 8 local and regional authorities.

SHERPA’s main objective is to reinforce the capacities of public administrations at regional and sub-regional level to improve Energy Efficiency in public buildings (EEPB) in the Mediterranean area. This Interreg MED modular project will contribute to speeding up the implementation of EU Directives on Energy Performance of Buildings (2010/31/EU) and on Energy Efficiency (2012/27/EU).
The project is divided into two modules:
- Testing module
A transnational, holistic and peer-to-peer model will be developed to produce 100 EEPB projects belonging to regional governments among the partner regions.
- Transferring and capitalising module
Another 100 energy renovation of buildings (ERB) projects following this methodology will be carried out in buildings from partner regions’ municipalities. It aims to ensure that results from the testing module are transferred and capitalised to as many Mediterranean municipalities and regions as possible.
