European districts have a critical role to play in efforts towards a future low-carbon economy. The EU-funded ProLight project envisages solutions for buildings that lead to finding suitable social responses for awareness creation, knowledge uptake, the establishment of behavioural changes regarding energy efficiency and the integration of renewables within an appropriate local political frame. The envisaged actions can potentially be applied by municipalities and social housing in other residential buildings. The project will connect applied research with theoretical analysis to identify and collect good practices by analysing districts concerning building renovation in an energy and resource efficient way in Greece, Austria and Finland, as well as the energy communities in Spain, Italy and Portugal.
