Documentary Film: Energy Efficiency in Buildings in the MEDA Region

As of: October 2020

Objective and activities

This project aimed to promote energy efficiency in buildings in the region through the provision of educational materials. To this end, a documentary film about ten successful pilot projects was produced in English, French and Arabic. The film demonstrates not only the economic advantages for homeowners and the building sector, but also the benefits to the economy overall. In addition, country-specific aspects are illustrated by means of practical examples. The film is accompanied by a brochure. This project is linked with the EU-funded MED-ENEC programme.
