HERE WE PRESENT YOU THE GREENING REGIONS PROJECT
The Greening Regions project was initiated by the Municipality of Rácalmás in order to enhance energy consumption consciousness and to spread the use of renewable energy sources in the region. For this purpose an excellent partnership has been established with Hungarian and Norwegian municipalities, local businesses and NGOs. The project supported by the Norway Grants will facilitate the development of innovative services in Rácalmás, taking into consideration best practices of their Norwegian counterparts. First, an energy management agency will be set-up to increase the knowledge of the local population, local SMEs and other municipalities regarding energy conscious solutions. Second, as a pilot investment, a geothermal heat pump will be installed in a local kindergarten, in order to supply the heating system with renewable energy. Beyond these actions, trainings and practical handbooks will be delivered to ensure wide-scale dissemination of project results. We hope that our project will show example and give incentive for people, companies and local governments in other regions as well!
ACT TODAY FOR A GREENER TOMORROW!
Energy-consciousness results in a clear win-win situation for You and your family. There are endless opportunities when it comes to solutions for decreasing our everyday energy consumption: switching off the light when we do not need it any more, or taking the bike instead of driving is for free… it even results in savings! But even if we dream bigger and consider changing the doors and windows of our house for better isolated ones, or installing solar panels – the investment clearly pays off on the long run. The Greening Regions project helps You and your family to learn more about the available solutions.
