OPENGELA is a one-stop-shop renovation service in the Basque Country, Spain. The project uses an economically-viable business model which includes the active engagement of citizens and an innovative financial instrument. This ensures that the renovation service is suitable for vulnerable populations.
After years of development and the running of 6 pilot neighbourhoods, the OPENGELA model is ready to be replicated not only in the Basque Country but elsewhere in Spain and Europe.
The project is now inviting 5 regions and cities from across Europe to come to the Basque Country to see how the pilot offices work and bring home what they can replicate from the OPENGELA model on their territory.
Who? The call is open to European regional or local energy agencies or public authorities who have the willingness to develop an integrated home renovation service and can make an impact on the urban regeneration in the territory.
What? The participants will enjoy a 2-day visit to the Basque Country to see how the OPENGELA model works.
How? Answer the questionnaire by 31 October 2021, with concise and complete information. Please note that only applications in English will be evaluated.
