11.Participation in European Initiatives and Networks for nZEBs

This Component concerns the integration of nZEBs into the building stock through the participation of an Entity in institutional Initiatives such as the Covenant of Mayors (CoM), Islands, etc.

The signatory cities commit to take action to support the implementation of the EU's target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030 and adopt a common approach to climate change mitigation and adaptation.

A similar initiative is the Covenant of Islands. It is a voluntary political commitment that is the tool by which the island authorities will introduce into their policy the obligation to help achieve the European Union's sustainability goals for the year 2020.

In Albania, the WBIF (EU's Western Balkans Investment Framework) in co-operation with the German investment bank KfW plans to build three entirely new student dormitories in Tirana, where in all of them NZEB standards will be applied.

Some critical sub-parameters are if the Entity participates in the Covenant of Mayors or Islands, examines the level of knowledge about the European Initiative of the Covenant of Mayors & Islands for nZEBs and the level of knowledge about the development of the "Sustainable Energy Action Plan" .
