PUBLEnEf project session at
Katowice climate change conference (COP 24)
at EU side events:
In this side-event H2020 and LIFE funded projects working on climate change mitigation from different angles will provide answers to following key questions on how to reach the Paris Agreement goals:
Increasing ambition in the low-carbon transition:
challenges and implications of the 1.5 and 2 degree targets
“What impacts will arise from a global warming of 1.5C and 2C and which impacts will be avoided if warming is kept below 1.5C?” (CRESCENDO project)
“NDC Review: What it really takes to Increase pre-2030 Ambition from Global, EU and National Level Perspectives?” (COP21RIPPLES project)
“Investigating Innovation Dynamics in low-emission transition pathways: what are the implications across different sectors and applications? (TRANSRISK project)
“Raising awareness about climate policy: what are the opportunities for decarbonizing Poland? “ (WZROST project)
“Supporting public authorities in reaching their climate and energy targets: what are the main challenges in implementing sustainable energy plans at regional and local level? “ (PUBLEnEf project)
The side-event features 5 thematic presentations followed by a panel discussion.

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.

The project team is a European Consortium made up of two European networks along with 12 national partners.
In order to create better policy implementation conditions, in addition to facilitating the collective learning and sharing of knowledge and practices on energy saving by public bodies, there is a need to properly embed the lessons learned into operational processes. Read More
