PUBLENEF Webinar – Supporting the implementation of Energy Efficiency Policies

The PUBLEnEf Webinar organised by FEDARENE and Energy Cities Supporting the Implementation of Energy Efficiency Policies through Technical Assistance and Roadmaps took place on 10 January 2018 at 11:00am CET.
During this webinar, the European Commission’s and the European Investment Bank’s offer of technical assistance were presented in detail. Regional Energy Agencies presented the key challenges and solutions when trying to up-scale investments in energy efficient streetlighting.
The “putting energy efficiency first” principle set out in the “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package of the European Commission, is bound to the multilevel implementation of energy efficiency policies across Europe. To this end, technical assistance provided through the “Project Development Assistance” under Horizon2020 and through the EIB-ELENA facility plays a crucial role in building the required technical, economic and legal expertise and in preparing substantial investment programmes for energy efficiency. The PUBLEnEf project is as well supporting this dynamic with a range of national, regional and local energy efficiency roadmaps, which tackle the specific needs of public authorities and utilize best practices from across Europe. Investments in the transition to energy efficient streetlighting is in particular starting to be a priority in many regions.

EE Roadmaps Library

PUBLENEF aims to assist European Union Member States in implementing effective and efficient sustainable energy policies (with the focus on energy efficiency) and empower them to make use of the best practices and policy processes implemented in other Member States at the national, regional and/or local level.

As one of final expected project achievements, different roadmaps will be developed in project participant countries to enhance public authorities’ capacity to actually implement energy efficiency pathways towards sustainability.

The development of the specific roadmaps shall be based on the outcomes of the main ‘research’ components of PUBLENEF: Assessment of good practices and needs for energy efficiency policies at national, regional and local level; matching assessment of policy needs with best practices.
