Abstract or SummaryThe HERB Project, Holistic Energy-efficient Retrofitting of residential Buildings, was implemented in Almada between 2012 and 2016. It focused on the development and demonstration of energy efficient new and innovative technologies and solutions for retrofitting and performance monitoring of residential buildings in EU countries. In Almada, the demonstration building is located at the parish of Caparica. It is a multiapartment building used for social housing purposes and started off with very low energy standards. The energy refurbishment of this building included roof and external wall insulation; solar thermal and PV hybrid collectors with surface nanocoating; high efficiency double glazing windows; LED lighting; natural ventilation and the installation of a remote monitoring system with sensors for electricity, gas and water consumption, alongside with humidity and temperature sensors (picture below)
From an asset rating point of view, the introduced measures resulted in 93,6% energy savings and 92,7% CO2 savings (this includes electricity produced on site). Most importantly, for a deprived social environment, is the satisfaction of the residents: pre and post retrofit surveys revealed that comfort perceived as increased significantly (50% increase) and the number of discomfort situations has decreased dramatically (90% decrease).

Abstract or SummaryIn 2009 the city of Almada set up the “Almada Less Carbon Climate Fund” which aimed at reducing Almada’s carbon footprint by financing energy efficiency and renewable energy investments. After eight years of successful operation, the Fund has now been redesigned and upgraded to be given a revolving nature (revolving fund). This means that the part of the cost savings resulting from implemented energy efficiency measures will directly return to the Fund, ensuring the leverage of the fund and boosting further investments for a clean energy transition.

Long description Between 2009 and 2016 it deployed roughly 1,6 M€ of investment, avoiding the emission of 953 tCO2/year, though the reduction of 3 000 000 kWh (corresponding to a saving of 375 000 €/year on energy costs). Examples of measures implemented are, among other:
 Telemanagement system for the public lighting in Almada
 LED lighting on all traffic lights and tests in Public Lighting
 Energy efficient lighting and HVAC systems in municipal buildings
 Electric vehicles for the municipal fleet
 Efficient lighting in historical monuments
 Efficient lighting in schools
 Solar PV on municipal buildings
 Energy retrofitting of social housing buildings
 Envelope refurbishment in office buildings

One of the most important innovations of the fund is the ‘shared benefits’ approach which assumes different sharing schemes between the fund and the “beneficiary department”, based on the characteristic of the project and during its lifetime. The main assumptions and objectives are to ensure the sustainability and the leverage effect of the fund, automatically prioritising the most cost-benefit projects and to directly help the “beneficiary department”.
The new revolving methodology, already formally approved and under evaluation in three implemented projects, will make the savings more visible since:
 they will become part of the budgets of the involved departments;
 it will make monitoring continuous and more effective since the efficient operation of the projects has direct and visible impacts on the department’s budget;
 it ensures locking in of investment on energy efficiency and renewable energy;
 Improved governance for a low carbon development, making the strategic objectives for energy efficiency less dependent of political changes/orientation

Long description The EcoEnLight project was implemented by the municipality of Almada between 2011 and 2013. This project was focused on improving the energy efficiency of Almada’s public lighting system, which accounts for more than 60% of the municipality’s energy consumption. During the EcoEnLight project, a smart tele-management system for Almada’s public lighting system was procured and implemented. This tele-management system allows to remotely manage public lighting intensity in Almada by adjusting the luminous flux of all the lights throughout the day. This way, a more efficient and tailored energy consumption coming from the public lighting system can be ensured, which fully takes into account the needs of the citizens who use Almada’s roads during day and night. Thanks to the EcoEnLight project, the city has been able to reduce the energy needs for public lighting by roughly 40%. This represents a reduction of nearly 0.6 GWh and 300 tons of CO2eq. The savings estimations, which include maintenance and electricity cost savings, pointed to an average of €80,000/year. More than €464,000 were invested in the EcoEnLight project in total. Roughly 1500 light points were refurbished which means roughly 5% of all the public lighting in Almada. The success of the EcoEnlight approach led to the development of the EcoEnlight II project which is currently under preparation and on the pipeline for financing of 3335 light points (this time adding to the tele-management system the replacement of lamps to LED lighting). An overall investment of roughly €1,500,000 for an annual saving of €170,000 and a payback period of 8 years. At the end of this intervention more than 15% of the public lighting in Almada will be highly efficient.
