The next Interregional event of the ENERSELVES project “Interregional learning workshop and Study visit” will take place on the 27th and 28th of April in Gozo, Malta. The event will be hosted by the Malta Intelligent Energy Management Agency (MIEMA) and split between learning actions that will take place within both days.

On the first day (27th of April), the venue for the event will be the “Cittadella”, where partners will discuss the good practices analysed and the potential to be transferred to other regions. Furthermore, the regional self-assessment updated will be reviewed. Concluding the session with a workshop covering all these topics. The second day (28th April) will include three study visits.

 1st- Magro food Village: is one of the largest food processing SMEs in Malta, processing tomatoes, cheeses and dairy products. In an effort to decrease the building´s energy demand, the business decided to cover the consumption of the building by installing 380 kWp solar PV system to partially offset the energy required from the grid.

2nd- Gozo Experimental Farm: This farm provides the cultivation of various species of vegetable and fruit seedlings. To cover part of the intensive consumption of the building the Ministry for Gozo decided to install 190,84 kWp solar PV system.

3rd- The Xewkija wind mill was built circa 1710, making it one of the oldest standing windmills on the Maltese island. In 2020 the windmill was restored through EU funds. The restorations include the reconstruction of the windmill´s mechanism and the replacement of the roof.

Thanks to this event, we will join RESINDUSTRY partners at the study visit, gathering partners from eleven European countries (Spain, Poland, Italy, Romania, Sweden, Malta, Czech Republic, Finland, Austria, Estonia and Malta).
