Collective purchasing groups for energy audits in Hodimont

The group has been set up as part of the Isol'Hodimont project to help both home owners and landlords with properties in the district. The main aim of the initiative is to group together all of the audit and certification applications from the district and thus ensure a top-quality service for a lower unit price. In May 2011, the LEMA research group at the University of Liège issued a call for tenders to more than 80 audit and certification bodies in Liège and Verviers. Of the nine tender applications submitted, only one met the necessary criteria in terms of quality and comparative price. Thanks to a targeted promotional campaign within the district and the help of the Verviers Guichet de l'énergie [energy information service], the project now coordinates no fewer than 40 audit and certification applications
