The annual Tourism Awards ceremony has recognized the most innovative and pioneering projects in Greek tourism, and among the winners was Dimitris Dimopoulos with Enervillas and Anaptiksi Kataskevastiki. Their work in sustainable energy management earned them the Bronze award in the "People & Branding/ Rational Energy Management" category.
Enervillas is a stunning tourist complex located in Kato Achaia, with a breathtaking view of the Rion-Antirion Bridge. The complex consists of two independent fully furnished houses of 210 square meters each, which are accessible for people with disabilities. These houses are designed to provide high thermal comfort and air quality at minimal operating and maintenance costs. Each villa even produces more energy than it consumes with the addition of a photovoltaic power of 8.5kw!
The certifications that the Enervillas have earned include the 1st certified passive house premium accommodation in Greece and one of 18 globally, the 1st type of sustainable villa in Greece certified by Earthcheck Evaluate Plus (www.earthcheck.org environmental management system), and the 1st carbon-neutral accommodation in Greece that operates annually.
Anaptiksi Kataskevastiki is a technical company specializing in the study and construction of Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB). It is one of the few technical companies in Greece that have all the necessary equipment, know-how, and experience for the study and construction of nZEB buildings.
Dimitris Dimopoulos expressed his gratitude for the award: "We are honored to participate and receive the award at the Tourism Awards. The recognition of our efforts by experienced professionals in the field gives us inspiration and joy to continue our work."
