A more thorough analysis of the objectives, the activities and the effectiveness of the projects that are financed through these schemes should be carried out, including for projects targeting public buildings. All schemes should be better integrated and interconnected.
Non-repayable grants to municipalities [Italy]
Under this measure, municipalities receive a lump sum to invest in energy efficiency projects and in sustainable development projects. The grants are allocated to municipalities according to the number of inhabitants. The money can be used for renovation of public buildings aimed at increasing energy efficiency. The grants can also be spent on projects for the sustainable development of the municipality. Despite being assigned according to the size of the municipalities, the grants are too small and inadequate to meet the renovation needs of each municipality.
