    Energy efficiency

    ELENA supports the preparation of projects that improve energy efficiency and renewable energy use in buildings.

    Eligible projects include:

    • energy efficiency in residential and non-residential buildings
    • building-integrated renewables (such as solar panels)
    • public lighting
    • district heating (including combined heat and power plants and biomass boilers)
    • smart grids

    Sustainable residential

    We help private individuals and homeowner associations prepare and implement energy efficiency renovations and renewable energy projects for residential buildings.

    Projects include:

    • Single family buildings;
    • Multi-family buildings;
    • Social housing.

    Urban transport and mobility

    We also support innovative transport and mobility projects in urban areas that save energy and reduce emissions.

    Eligible projects include:

    • Investments to support the use and integration of innovative solutions that promote alternative fuels in urban mobility, such as vehicles and refuelling infrastructure.
    • Investments to promote the wide-scale rollout of new, more energy-efficient transport, which in urban areas can take many forms, such as shared mobility, urban logistics, intelligent transport systems, urban infrastructure (including investments in soft mobility, or mobility that does not involve motorised transport.)
