PUBLENEF interacts with multiple EU funded projects focusing on developing, perfecting and implementing energy efficiency policies (see below). Project topics range from evaluation of energy efficiency policies, to capacity building for innovative financing or holistic energy planning.
…aims to develop and promote a tool for stakeholders to make intelligent decisions on energy renovation strategies. By providing a rating for deep renovation opportunities funding institutes can provide targeted loans, retrofit companies can identify sound opportunities, municipalities can promote targeted incentives.
… strives for Sustainable Energy and energy efficiency at startups and SMEs through behaviour change. To fulfill this mission, the project offers free-of-charge mentoring and training activities in nine European countries.
…aims to enable peer to peer learning in regional and local authorities in order to finance and implement their sustainable energy plans. These tools, such as mentoring, work shadowing, and site visits will enable the proper matching of peer groups, which will feed in information on the development of financing for sustainable energy plans.
…aims to increase the adoption of Energy Performance Contract (EPC) investment schemes in the elaboration of Energy Efficiency plans for public building in the MED area, raising the knowledge of MED institutions in designing, implementation and managing of energy efficiency plans for public buildings.
…aims to increase saving opportunities, improve housing space quality and create value for all the actors involved in the energy refurbishment of buildings: from people living in the dwellings to the technicians who manage and keep high building’s performances, from innovators to investors in the construction sector. The project focuses on a portion of social housing located in the Emilia-Romagna Region and has the ambition to be replicated abroad.
…aims to promote the energy renovation of public housing in Liguria and apply innovative financing models. In line with the Regional Environmental Energy Plan, EnerSHIFT seeks to reduce energy consumption, improve tenants’ quality of life and boost the local economy. As part of this process, EnerSHIFT will launch a public tender process reserved for ESCo (Energy Service Companies) after which energy performance contracts (EPC) will be signed.
…aims the integral energy regeneration of the Txantrea District of Pamplona through both the development and implementation of energy saving measures for buildings and the renewal of the district heating systems powered by renewable energies.
…aims to develop innovative business and financing models for performance-based ESCO projects with 14 experienced partners. For rented facilities, the aim is to develop and test solutions adequately sharing costs and benefits between user, building owner and ESCO (triple-win approach). With a special focus on private sector building owners, EPC contract variants providing enhanced flexibility will be developed.
…aims to foster local energy investments on public buildings (primarily in schools, a significant target in Italy for energy efficiency) and to spread the PPP approach also through the innovative, for the context, Energy Performance Contracts (EPC) in Convergence Regions.
…aims to give EU Member States tools and knowledge for a better evaluation of their own energy efficiency policies. This project will last 30 months from May 2017 to October 2019, and is led by a consortium of 10 partners from 8 European countries.
…is a European initiative aiming to create a standardised “energy efficient mortgage”, according to which building owners are incentivised to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings or acquire an already energy efficient property by way of preferential financing conditions linked to the mortgage.
… will develop and implement a human and institutional capacity building process related to sustainable energy planning and energy projects implementation. This will be addressed to public authorities and societal stakeholders to support them to enter in a new era of integrated sustainable energy planning through a participatory and multi-level interdisciplinary decision making process.
…contributes to the shift of six EU regions towards low-carbon society by enhancing the capacities of municipalities and regional representatives to shape integrated energy strategies and plans. The project contributes to bridge the gap of skills needed to plan energy measures in the new 2030 framework for Climate and Energy Policy in terms of GHG emission reduction, renewable energy and energy efficiency.
…aims to help deliver the intended economic and environment benefits of the EU Energy Labelling and Ecodesign Directives by increasing the rates of compliance with their energy efficiency requirements. The project will be achieved through the joint monitoring, verification and enforcement activities of 18 Market Surveillance Authorities and a national agency aiming to have a transnational impact across the EU Single Market.
…aims to explore, to design, to develop and to demonstrate the concept of individual Building Renovation Roadmaps. Representing an evolution of the Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and energy audit systems, building renovation roadmaps will serve as a tool outlining a customised renovation plan with a long-term horizon for deep step-by-step renovation of individual buildings (iBRoad-Plan), combined with a repository of building-related information (logbook, iBRoad-Log).
…is a European ‘market activation – policy orientation’ project aiming to fight energy poverty by actively engaging consumers in the energy market, generating a positive change of behaviour in relation to energy consumption and to influence the design of energy poverty-oriented policies. Addressing both energy and social issues, ASSIST intends to contribute to tackling the main barriers of the energy market (taking into account electricity and heating) faced by a specific segment of people: vulnerable consumers with special focus on energy poor.
…is an international research project aiming to increase the demand for training on energy efficiency in buildings and particularly on deep energy retrofit; to increase the number of qualified workers and specialists along the whole construction chain; and to accelerate the energy renovation of the existing building stock and to raise the quality of the renovated buildings.
…is a European project designed to deliver a systematic approach to energy savings in local authorities using energy management systems (EnMS) according to ISO 50001 or European Energy Award with dedicated online monitoring tool and energy saving competitions. EnMS and competitions when combined can trigger significant benefits by providing innovative and efficient way to involve municipalities that have already their SEAPs but do not act in order to foster their integrated development at local level.
…aims to overcome market barriers to deep energy-efficient retrofits of private housing stock by developing and rolling out integrated energy efficiency (EE) service packages targeting homeowners in 11 target territories from 10 EU Member States (NL, DK, BE, LV, CZ, CY, SE, IT, ES and UK).
…aims to assist local public authorities and other stakeholders in small sized rural municipalities in Rhodope Region of Bulgaria in successful launching and implementation of sustainable energy projects. The project focuses on creation of a pilot programme for financing investment by establishing a structure to act as central procurement agency on behalf of local authorities to undertake energy retrofitting works in their buildings and street lighting systems.
…aims to develop innovative investment and financing solutions to help realize the ambitious climate action plans of local authorities in Flanders that signed the Covenant of Mayors. The so-called FLC Solution was tested at the conceptual level and builds on the results of several previous projects while integrating state of the art knowledge on sustainable energy financing.
…will develop and validate an integrated and easy-to-use tool to support local authorities in selecting, simulating and comparing alternative low carbon and economically sustainable scenarios for heating and cooling. It will be validated in the three PLANHEAT cities. The PLANHEAT simulation tool will be designed to support local authorities.
…is a European project aiming to quantify the multiple non-energy benefits of energy efficiency in the EU-28 area. It gathers existing approaches and evidence from the EU area and develops modelling approaches for impacts on emissions (effects on health, ecosystems, crops); resources (biotic/abiotic, metals and non-metals); social welfare (disposable income, health); macro economy (labour market, public finance, GDP); and the energy system (grid, supply-side, energy security).
