IEECP spoke at several events in June and July, and recordings / summaries are now available (click on the titles to access them).
To effectively de-risk investments in the building sector and facilitate the upgrading of building performance and energy efficiency services in Europe, policy, financing and technical tools need to work together in a coordinated and coherent manner. Front running H2020 projects (Launch, SENSEI, Triple-A, NOVICE, QualitEE, QUEST, u-CERT and REHVA) are working to overcome barriers to achieve the doubling of the building renovation rate needed to reach EU’s climate goals. Read the very good summary written by the Triple A project.
The effects of the COVID19 epidemic are closely linked to environmental issues from many perspectives. Starting from the most recent evidence and data collected, the seminar discussed emerging trends and try to understand cause-effect links and relationships between the various anthropogenic activities and pollution and analysed lessons and hints for the design of environmental policies able to better respond both to emergency situations as the one we just experienced and to more structural challenges such as climate change and global warming.
It discussed the expectations about the role that biofuels can play in a radical decarbonization of the EU economy, with a focus on the (in)compatibility between what is desirable (desirability criteria) and what is possible (viability and feasibility constraints).
The webinar addressed multi-stakeholder views on the way energy poverty measures are developed and assessed across Member States. Panel discussion among energy attachés and stakeholders to exchange views on how Members States continued the important fight against energy poverty, especially in the framework of National Energy and Climate Plans evaluation and update.
Vlasis Oikonomou from IEECP joined the event early July to present views from the EU level based on all projects IEECP is involved in in this high level event with 35 distinguished speakers. Also see article in Greek.
Other events where IEECP didn’t speak but on projects we coordinate / partner in:
- Open Monday – L’energia della solidarietà: terzo settore e progetti innovativi per il sociale, in Italian, where SocialWatt was highlighted
- Business models, funding and financing transport, about the project PROSPECT
Finally, we also recommend you check two other webinar recordings of our partner projects, which ended with great results to look at:
- The ASSIST project: ASSIST model proved successful in tackling energy poverty
- The NOVICE project: new business model encourages ESCOs to join forces with demand response aggregators
