SINLOC operates in seven areas


Sinloc for the recovery of the former Capraia isola prison zone

27 September 2019
Sinloc, appointed by the Municipality of Capraia Isola and in a temporary joint venture with Studio Fabbro Architetti and ArchLandStudio, is carrying out the feasibility study of the landscape design “zona ex Carcere Capraia Isola” called Aghiale. The former agricultural penal colony, established in the 19th century and active until the middle of the 1980s, is today a perfectly structured hilly area, of rare beauty and emblematic of both the problems and the potential of small isolated communities. The challenge for Sinloc at Aghiale consists in combining environmental quality with the possibility of building up sustainable activities. Starting from analysis of the environmental, natural and man-made resources, the Sinloc team is involved in identifying the territory’s fragilities and vulnerabilities and evaluating the potential use of landscape resources with regard to demands, also cultural, and to social expectations. The project envisages a path or regeneration that will consist of a series of initiatives functional to the stabilization and growth of the community, involved in the process under way as primary custodian of the territory. The activities foreseen include the recovery of terracing and of agro-pastoral activities, starting touristic deseasonalisation and scientific, study and cultural procedures, with the goal of obtaining the best possible balance of environmental, social and economic management of the territory.

The PadovaFIT Expanded Project for residential energy efficiency begins

19 September 2019
The operational phase of the PadovaFIT Expanded project begins.  In collaboration with the Municipality of Padua, this project aims at activating a Local One-stop Shop to guide citizens in the realization of energy upgrade measures in private homes, which contribute for around 40% to total CO2 emissions. The project is configured as a virtuous example in the definition of organizational and economic models for the energy upgrade of private buildings, aiming at obtaining a saving of around 700 tons per year of Co2 emissions. PadovaFIT Expanded, although not directly financing the energy renewal operations, aims to promote the energy transition process in a residential context, operating on two fronts; on one hand, by aggregating demand (the owners) and supply (the construction sector and the suppliers) in a single meeting point; on the other, by providing citizens with information, technical, contractual and financial tools, with the objective of increasing their awareness and trust of the solutions and services present on the market. Sinloc has followed this project since its first phase of ideation and presentation to the European Commission within the context of the Horizon Program 2020. In the implementation phase, Sinloc’s role is that of identifying solutions of Smart Finance for Smart Building to accelerate the realization of the interventions and reach the minimum objectives in terms of energy efficiency. The intervention will start within the Municipality of Padua, and then be extended to the whole metropolitan area of Padua and replicated in other two “follower” cities, Timisoara (Romania) and Plovdiv (Bulgaria).

The Elena European project for energy efficiency turns ten

19 July 2019
ELENA, the European project for enhancing energy efficiency, turns ten. Together with the European Central Bank, Sinloc has accompanied it on most of this journey. In fact, since 2012 , with the role of Advisor for technical assistance to Local Authorities, Sinloc has been involved in five ELENA projects: the Milan Covenant of Mayors (Lombardy), Chieti Towards 2020 (Abruzzo) and 3L (Veneto) projects, which have been concluded, while the FABER (Province of Bergamo) and AMICA-E (Province of Venice) projects are still under way. The projects have focused on carrying out energy efficiency interventions by means of Energy Performance Contracts (EPC), with guarantee of outcome and of sharing of benefits for the Public Administration. In total, they will initiate around 230 million Euros of investments in Public-Private Partnerships for the energy efficiency of more than 1,000 public buildings and more than 150,000 public lighting systems, for the benefit of more than 350 Local Authorities involved. In the latest tendering procedures awarded, the average energy saving obtained is of 40% for public buildings and 80% for public lighting systems.

Social impact assessment with the Carisbo Foundation. The fair play case!

19 July 2019
Sinloc was chosen by the Carisbo Foundation to test the introduction of elements of assessment of the results in its Fair_Play call for tenders, aimed at promoting the practice of sports and physical education, seen also as opportunities for education and for psychological and physical well-being, by means of interventions aimed at the improvement of sport facilities. The work is carried out in partnership with Fondazione Zancan, with which an important supply system on the subject of result and impact assessment, characterized by a wide array of methods and tools, was developed. Measurement of the benefits created allows each organization to make aware choices and represents an element of transparency: the shared path with the Carisbo Foundation involves identifying relevant dimensions and guiding organizations receiving contributions towards the ability to valorise their actions from both an economic and a social point of view.
