Time: 17.30-18.45

PUBLENEF Workshop at Assises de la Transition Energétique – January 2018
The 19th edition of the well-established “Assises Européennes de la Transition Energétique”(European Energy Transition Conference) took place in Geneva from the 30th January to 1st of February 2018. The 3 days-event took place in the cross-border area of Greater Geneva. During a period of 3 days, over 4500 participants – representatives of the public authorities, of the economic and academic worlds and of the civil society, are gathered to discuss and debate regional energy transition with the leitmotif of « Cooperate in order to make a success of energy transition».
In this frame, on the 31st of January the European project PUBLENEF held the workshop “Mieux accompagner les collectivités dans la mise en oeuvre de leur stratégie d’efficacité énergétique” (“How to better support local and regional authorities in their implementation of energy efficiency strategies”) during which FEDARENE and Energy Cities presented the overall approach and processes of the partners. ARENE (now IAU IDF-département Energy et Climat ARENE) and JIN made in-detail presentations of the roadmaps they are implementing in their territories in the frame of PUBLENEF.

Agenda

Financing local energy roadmaps: special focus on the renovation challenge

Date: October 12, 2017

Time: 8:30-13:00

Location: Renewable Energy House, 63 Rue d'Arlon 1040 Bruxelles, Belgium

Energy efficiency is the "no regret" solution to reduce the European Union's dependence on energy imports and fighting climate change, while featuring multiple benefits. Yet, the potential is underexploited. The EU's 30% energy efficiency target foreseen for 2030 could only be reached as a result of effective multi-level governance between local, regional and national authorities. Such cooperation is especially valuable in private building renovations, which could contribute massively to these targets, while creating local jobs, boosting GDP, raising quality of life and keeping money at home.

This European event is organized in the framework of the PUBLENEF project, aiming at assessing needs of local and regional authorities in terms of financing their sustainable energy projects, with a special focus on private buildings renovation. A second purpose of the event is to link those seeking to implement projects with those who can provide for financing or enable their implementation in other ways.

PUBLENEF Workshop on External Lighting

Date: April 6, 2017

Time: 10:30 - 12:40

Location: Marion Room, Anglesea Rd, RDS, Dublin 4, Ireland

"The objective of this session is to learn from best practice examples from Europe of strategic approaches and models and inform the development of a business case for Irish public lighting stock. The RMO will present on Ireland’s current status and plans for retrofitting public lights. This will be followed by presentation from countries, similar to Ireland, who have or are the process of significant large scale public lighting retrofits. Project development supports in the EU and project financing options will be outlined. Finally, there will be a panel discussion on the various project models, and what models or approaches that could work in Ireland, including maximizing the potential of EU support.
This event is OPEN to Lighting contractors, Local Authorities, Lighting Suppliers, Lighting Designers, Public Bodies with Street & Exterior Lighting interests.

Please feel free to invite your maintenance contractor/designer or lighting supplier to this session.

How to aggregate small energy investments into a large regional project?

How to aggregate small energy investments into a large regional project?


Organiser: Regions for simplification
Venue: Committee of the Regions, Jacques Delors, Room
Date: 13th of October 2016
Speakers and chair(s): Mr. Togonal Mislav (Chair), Mr. Domac Julije , Mr. Doubrava Roman , Mr. Goldmann Ralf , Mrs. Jahn Anette , Mr. Kenny Paul , Mr. Pigliaru Francesco

As public funds alone are not sufficient for delivering ambitious EU energy targets, a different, concentrated approach relying on more market based solutions is required. The event intends to explore options in supporting the creation of regional platforms aiming at aggregating small energy efficiency projects to maximise the use of and access to the EFSI. The event will build upon most recent successful examples like ELENA supported NEWLIGHT project: the aggregation of street lighting reconstruction projects in 57 cities and municipalities from different regional authorities into a single project where total investment exceeded 20 million euros.
