June is already here and for many of us, it usually means organising events before the Summer, attending the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) and preparing for Holidays. This year, things will be different for all of us: for the first time, the EUSEW event will go digital. An opportunity in the midst of this COVID crisis, to try new ways of organising (sustainable) events, allowing more people to join and reducing travels. You will hear us on topics such as energy poverty or business models to de-risk investments.
We are glad and actually excited to add new projects to our existing ones, especially on these very topics! Since early 2020, IEECP has been granted new projects, presented in our last newsletter, and we recently got the news that we will kick off two new projects after the summer. One will develop a tool to evaluate the multiple impacts of energy efficiency at different governance levels (H2020 MICAT) and the other will nudge consumers towards energy efficiency through behavioural science (H2020 NUDGE). Earlier this week, as the ASSIST project final event, our projects SocialWatt and ENPOR, which IEECP will coordinate starting after the summer, were mentioned as key projects on tackling energy poverty by EASME, the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.
This newsletter provides insights into the latest findings of projects we coordinate or partner in, which you can also find into short monthly webinars: read now about international experiences of implementing efficiency first, innovative ways to finance sustainable energy and climate actions at local level through citizen financing or pay for performance experiences for energy efficiency and join our many digital events on these topics!
