The GROOF project is an innovative cross-sectoral approach to reduce CO2 emissions in the construction and agricultural sectors by combining energy sharing and local food production.
3 MAIN STEPS:
- the identification of barriers and opportunities in order to provide the best suitable guidance to the future project carriers located in North West Europe.
- the development of 4 pilots in France, Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg.
- looking for rooftop greenhouse project carriers located in North West Europe and Spain. The applications will be collected in 2019 through an open call for project.
GROOF project aims at disseminate and demonstrate an alternative way to participate in the CO2 emissions reduction with compliance to the European directives.
