EU GPP case study: Urban regeneration of the Vila d’Este neighbourhood
The revitalization of the Vila D’Este neighbourhood follows the commitment made by Vila Nova de Gaia over the past few years to revitalize peripheral areas of the municipality. Vila D’Este is a densely populated neighbourhood, with approximately 17 thousand inhabitants. It is located in the parish of Vila de Andorinho, which lies within the municipality of Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal. The main objectives of the energy rehabilitation of this social housing complex are to meet current energy requirements, improve indoor air quality, and architecturally rehabilitate the neighbourhood.During the first phase of the project, 766 residences and 31 commercial spaces were rehabilitated, covering a total of 109 buildings. The second phase of the project is underway, which will allow the regeneration of 1319 residences and 45 commercial spaces. Following the improvements, namely the introduction of thermal insulation, improved glazing and installation of shading, the estimated annual energy savings expected from the overall measures are 10,3 GWh/year. The project has the potential to generate economic savings of approximately € 1.3 million/year. In environmental terms, the revitalization will allow a potential annual saving of 4 800 tons of CO 2 emissions.
