PUBLEnEf project Final Conference

A new Energy Efficiency Directive has been agreed upon and Europeans now have their new target: 32,5% for 2030. Public authorities through their energy efficiency strategies will be the main drivers for implementing the necessary measures and monitoring their impact towards this new target.

The PUBLENEF H2020 project has been focusing precisely on mobilising public authorities at local, regional and national level and connecting them. Based on needs assessments and good practices analysis, the partners developed policy roadmaps in 12 cities and regions across Europe to implement energy efficiency pathways towards sustainability.

In the frame of the European Week of Regions and Cities, this event will explore the capacity of local and regional authorities to lead the transition to an energy efficient society. EU level representatives will present the new policy framework for energy efficiency and the latest financing opportunities. Successful approaches will be discussed and effective tools will be shared. You’ll have the chance to exchange with fellow experts and policy makers on the key dimensions of energy efficiency policies and together explore the latest trends and solutions.

Wed Oct 10th 09:00 – 16:00
Palais des Académies, Rue Ducale 1, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium


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.
