In this Portuguese neighbourhood, the ProLight project will work to build a renewable energy community that is up to the positive Energy District (PED) standard. The neighbourhood has already been subject of envelope and hot water interventions, that were funded under structural funds. Additionally, the project will implement photovoltaic energy production to be used by the inhabitants. The demo site will be coordinated by AdEPorto on behalf of the municipality of Matosinhos.
