Awareness Campaign for Financing Energy Efficiency

March, April 2011, Estonia

In the context of Urb.Energy an awareness campaign was done by KredEx this year. Diverse media channels were used like TV and radio spots, internet banners, information leaflets, posters in public transport and information roll-ups in shopping centres with a trained team to give suitable informations.

The aim was to inform people of the financial measures offered by KredEx that help to increase energy saving in apartment buildings.

An evaluation of the information campaign showed that inter alia half of the so informed people knew of KredEx, however, most people were not aware of the terms of application for grants. Also people were interested but mostly stated that it is difficult to reach agreements in meetings of associations due to contradictory opinions.

According to different feedbacks the message of the awareness campaign has reached the target group through various channels so that people are more informed on the topic and the awareness of key words and financing possibilities offered by KredEx have increased.

Public Information Days in Rakvere

May 2011, Rakvere, Estonia 

The information days in Rakvere offered a lot of knowledge about the results of the energy efficient renovation and the possibilities of using KredEx support for financing the works. The main aim was to inform the residents of the target area about their possibilities of energy efficiency because educated and informed residents are able to make a decision on the general meeting of the housing association. These special days were organised in collaboration of Rakvere City Government, several experts and local enterprises which sponsored the events offering snacks and beverages. More than 100 residents were present at the information days.

In addition to the information days a consultant has continuously been attending the general and extraordinary meetings of the housing associations and the boards of the housing associations. He explained the possibilities for reconstruction works as well as the importance of it, sharing information and explaining the results of the energy audits made on the houses.
