EUSEW Open house-events at the Spanish demonstration site in Eibar

On June 17th and 18th, the Mogel demonstrator in Eibar organized two activities as part of the Open house events coordinated by within the frame of the 2015 European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW).

The events in Eibar consisted of a public presentation of a 13-minute documentary video showing the deep renovation process that Mogel has undergone, from the perspective of all involved stakeholders. The video, financed by the ZenN project as a dissemination tool to promote replication, shows the transformation of Mogel due to its participation in ZenN.

It features testimonials from neighbors and owners, public authorities as well as involved industry and other stakeholders. The video was presented by the City of Eibar’s Mayor, Miguel de los Toyos, along with the Basque Government Housing Department Director, Iñigo Basañez, and Debegesa’s General Director, Juan Ángel Balbás, together with representatives from the Neighbours Committee.

Additionally a site visit was organized the following day for representatives of Municipal Retrofitting Agencies of the Basque Country. Esther Zarrabeitia, manager of the Urbanism and retrofitting Department in Debegesa, guided the group, explaining the process highlights, and answering many questions.

The guided tour presentad an opportunity not only to see the outcome of the demonstration, but also to share first-hand insight on the organisational and management-related details of the process from the point of view of public authorities. The visit concluded with a screening of the video in the nearby Ipurua retirement home.
