Link Central Europe strategic projects
The CONCERTO initiative, launched by the European Commission, is a Europe wide initiative proactively addressing the challenges of creating a more sustainable future for Europe’s energy needs. CONCERTO supports local communities, as clearly defined geographical areas or zones, in developing and demonstrating concrete strategies and actions that are both sustainable and highly energy efficient. Interactions and relevant energy flows between centralised and decentralised energy supplies and demands can be identified, measured and assessed. The CONCERTO initiative has been only possible as a result of the strong commitment from the relevant, local authorities and includes technical experts, academics, and private companies from across Europe. Throughout the 22 participating CONCERTO projects the focus is primarily on demonstrating the environmental, economic and social benefits of integrating renewable energy sources (RES) together with energy efficiency (EE) techniques through a sustainable energy-management system operated on a community level. The CONCERTO initiative provides a platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences between the 58 CONCERTO demonstration communities, and other cities that are committed to introducing similar strategies. Communities participating will benefit from the shared expertise of Europe's most advanced communities, active in the field of energy sustainability.
The ClimactRegions project will develop assessment methodologies and will produce guides in three areas: GHG observatory, regional policies and governance. This will be based on the exchange of experiences and good practices identified by partners, the recommendations, aimed at developing specific actions to reduce GHG emissions in the territories, can then be used by policy makers.
Link ENERGY-Europe
EU Energy Homepage: Energy efficiency & renewable energy actions Europe's citizens and companies need a secure supply of energy at affordable prices in order to maintain our standards of living. At the same time, the negative effects of energy use, particularly fossil fuels, on the environment must be reduced. That is why EU policy focuses on creating a competitive internal energy market offering quality service, on developing renewable energy sources, on reducing dependence on imported fuels, and on doing more with a lower consumption of energy.
Link Sustainable Energy Europe
The Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign showcases activities dedicated to energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions. Tell your story, inspire change, network with experts and add a European dimension to your project and events
Link ManagEnergy
ManagEnergy is a technical support initiative of the Intelligent Energy - Europe (IEE) programme of the European Commission which aims to assist actors from the public sector and their advisers working on energy efficiency and renewable energy at the local and regional level.
Supporting the Public Administration for the introduction of RES systems in private and public buildings PATRES focuses on a customized package for the heads of department and technical officers working for local authorities, public utilities and social housing bodies to support effective policies for the introduction of renewable energy systems in private and public buildings. The goal is realizing codes and regulations for the construction or renovation of buildings and for green public procurement procedures. PATRES offers the Public Administration professional advice, coaching and significant opportunities of international cooperation and networking to compare experiences and better understand how to promote the introduction of renewable energies.
ENERgy Efficiency and Renewable Energies in the BUILDing Sector in the Alpine Space The project is focused on strengthening SMEs in the building sector because of their great importance as employers in alpine valleys. New developments and changes concerning building techniques of ESAP (energy saving and producing) buildings require cross-sectoral networks and collaborations of SMEs. Because of the increasing complexity in this field there is the need for customers, especially public builders, to have a better basis for decision-making. The key topics of the project are: 1. Providing latest technical know-how for craftsmen and architects 2. Developing tools for public builders which act as decision guidance 3. Providing customers with innovative financing tools concerning the energy production of buildings
The NENA network is the result of a transnational project called NENA (Network enterprise Alps), which was supported by the EU Alpine Space Programme. Thanks to this initiative organizations have been found that the experts brought their knowledge of energy-efficient and eco-construction and have decided to form a permanent structure to offer their know-how in the form of a common platform.
The objective of the CLUSNET project - which is financed by the EU Interreg IVC program - is to improve the effectiveness of cluster support policies in larger European city-regions.
