The objective of the project has been to assess the possibilities of the use of renewable energy resources in public buildings, to develop a typology of buildings and investment objectives and to develop the basic investment models. It is possible to effectively reduce the energy consumption of buildings through the use of renewable energy resources such as solar energy, geothermal energy, wind energy, hydro power and energy from biomass. The developed studies have included the analysis of the results of the research carried out in the sphere of public buildings, descriptions applicable in practice, as well as a set of concrete examples, which may become an important tool for all those who wish to reduce their energy costs taking into account economic and environmental aspects, and who want to prepare or substantiate their decisions relating to the planned investments in this area. The studies can be used for example by local authorities and/or other organizations administering public buildings, which anticipate using renewable energy resources in their institutions and which intend to apply for funding for this purpose.
