Public-private partnerships for energy efficiency policies – PUBLEnEf Webinar

Public-private partnerships for energy efficiency policies

Thursday, 18 October 2018 from 10:00 to 11:30 (CEST)

Energy efficiency is the best investment in sustainable energy that has multiple benefits. Yet, its vast potential is not realised. What are the challenges – as it’s seen by the industry? How can regional and local authorities can foster such investments? What are the financial hints and tricks to make a project attractive for those who finance it?
This webinar aims to discuss these questions among others and assist those considering to draft and implement ambitious local and regional EE policies and actions.


Adrian Joyce, the European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EuroACE):
The EE implementation challenge

Christiane Egger, Upper Austria Energy Agency (OO ESV):
Carrots and sticks in motivating the large public

Marie-Laure Falque Masset, Energy Agency of Ile de France (ARENE IDF):
Energy clusters for the implementation of successful pilots

Katarzyna Dziamara-Rzucidlo, Energy Efficiency Finance Group (EEFIG):
Grants or financial instruments – or how to make your EE project attractive for the financial sector? What support is there for you?

Moderated by Kristina Dely, Energy Cities, the association of cities in their energy transition

Supporting Public Authorities for implementing Energy Efficiency Policies

PUBLEnEf is a 3-year project funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme, aiming to assist EU Member States in implementing effective and efficient sustainable energy policies (with the focus on energy efficiency).

The project helps to empower policy-makers to make use of best practices.
Specific objectives of PUBLEnEf include:

  • Identification of the needs from national, regional and local authorities for the implementation of Energy Efficiency policies,
  • Collection of best practices and tools for overcoming these needs and replicate them to various Member States, regions and municipal authorities,
  • Development of roadmaps and enhancement the process of successful implementation of policies,
  • Building and strengthening existing networks of policy makers enabling the knowledge exchange from national to regional to local level in Energy Efficiency policy.

The PUBLEnEf process aims at the assessment of existing energy efficiency policy implementation practices in European Union countries, regions, and cities; strengthening the networking opportunities for relevant public agencies and development and adjustment tools for public agencies to help them to implement energy efficiency policies.
Furthermore, PUBLEnEf developed a digital platform to enhance the exchange of information and to provide a large variety of supporting tools and resources for energy efficiency policy planning, development, implementation and evaluation.
JIN Climate and Sustainability (The Netherlands) coordinates the PUBLEnEf project, and collaborates with 12 partner organisations: (CRES) Greece ,(KAPE), Poland, , (CIEMAT) Spain, (CEI), Croatia, (ABEA), Bulgaria, (ESV), Austria, (ENEA)Italy, (FEDARENE), Belgium, (Energy Cities), France , (TEA), Ireland, (ARENE), France, (AEEPM), Romania, (ISNOVA), Italy.

See here short videos about EE Roadmaps developed by PUBLEnEf Team

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.
