LEMON is a project funded as part of the European Horizon 2020 program (call-EE-20-2015: Project development assistance for innovative bankable and aggregated sustainable energy investment schemes and projects) with the purpose of providing technical assistance to public and private entities for the preparation of tenders for the energy retrofitting of 622 social housing units in the provinces of Reggio Emilia and Parma.
LEMON will supplement regional and national loans and incentives to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings and apply two new contractual instruments to govern the relations between tenants and owners of the residences, the energy supplier and the ESCOs (Energy Service Companies) so as to ensure a return on investment within 15 years from the retrofitting.
