PUBLEnEF Final Conference: Supporting Public Authorities Towards Energy Efficiency

Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Wednesday, 10 October 2018 09:00 - 16:00

Venue: Palais des Académies Rue Ducale 1 1000 Brussels  |  City: Bruxelles

A new Energy Efficiency Directive has been agreed upon and Europeans now have their new target: 32,5% for 2030. Public authorities through their energy efficiency strategies will be the main drivers for implementing the necessary measures and monitoring their impact towards this new target. 

The PUBLENEF H2020 project has been focusing precisely on mobilising public authorities at local, regional and national level and connecting them. Based on needs assessments and good practices analysis, the partners developed policy roadmaps in 12 cities and regions across Europe to implement energy efficiency pathways towards sustainability.

In the frame of the European Week of Regions and Cities, this event will explore the capacity of local and regional authorities to lead the transition to an energy efficient society. EU level representatives will present the new policy framework for energy efficiency and the latest financing opportunities. Successful approaches will be discussed and effective tools will be shared. You’ll have the chance to exchange with fellow experts on the key dimensions of energy efficiency policies and together explore the latest trends and solutions.
