The CLEAN project (Interreg Europe) seeks to foster and influence local and regional policies to move forward in the low emissions strategy focusing on buildings through the transfer of knowledge and good practices in technologies and open innovation between the different European regions participating in the project. The European lighthouse project Replicate, SmartKalea initiative and Enertic bioclimatic building have been presented as good practices by Fomento San Sebastian.
Fomento San Sebastián participates in the project representing the city of San Sebastian, along with other nine European members: the region of Vasternorrland (Sweden), region of Campania (Naples, Italy), North Karelia (Finland), the region of Normandy (France), region of Crete (Greece), the town of Iasi (Rumania), region of Savinjska (Slovenia), and the region of Donegal (Ireland) through the leader of the ERNACT project, which is the “European Regions Network for the Application of the Communication Technologies”.
The project involves investment of €1.33 million and will continue until the end of 2021. At a local level, work is being carried out with local agents in order to look for instruments and to define a good practices guide and an action plan for the city. Furthermore, missions are being carried out in different European regions to transfer knowledge, whereby local agents interested in the topic may also be invited. The next trip will be to Rumania in April 2019.
