The project intends to develop six pilot regional plans in the field of heating and cooling from renewable energies. It involves six pilot Regions pertaining to 6 European countries representing the EU main climatic zones, with a prevalence of the Mediterranean nations. The planning exercise aims at setting harmonized and standard baselines to better allow the developers to set their targets and policies. These baselines will provide robust and detailed maps of the RES H/C supply and demand pote...
The RePublic_ZEB project is focused on the economically sustainable strategies and policies to enforce the refurbishment of the public building stock towards nZEB levels, according to the EU 20/20/20 target. The main objectives of the project are to support the South-Eastern European countries to promote on the market a set of concrete technical solutions for the refurbishment of the public building stock toward nZEB by increasing the involved key actors` confidence on nZEB, and to take conc...
The second Concerted Action for the Energy Efficiency Directive (CA EED) was launched by the IEE to provide a structured framework for the exchange of information between the 27 Member States plus Norway and Croatia during their implementation of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED). It is a continuation of the first CA ESD, which lasted 3 years and ended in June 2011. The objectives of the CA EED are to: Enhance and structure the sharing of information and experiences...
Transparense project aimed at supporting the development of a trustworthy Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) market in Europe by creating European and national Codes of Conduct for energy services providers (ESCOs) and their clients. The sets of rules were tailored to the specific conditions of each participating country and contributed to the increase of transparency of EPC markets and ensured the high quality of the energy services provided. As the number of energy services which enter ...
For the development of SEAPs it is necessary to know in detail where there is energy consumption, in order to identify and then address the problem areas. It also helps to know where the greater potential is for reducing energy demand and to implement low-cost and energy efficiency measures. WIthout such knowledge of energy consumption by sector and area it is not possible to make efficient energy planning that will be effective and dynamic, feeding back into the process of change in...
The major objective of GridTech is to conduct a fully integrated impact assessment of the implementation of new technologies (RES-E generation, bulk storage, transmission network technologies) into the European electricity system necessary to exploit the full potential of future RES-E generation across Europe with lowest possible total electricity system cost. The timeframe of GridTech analyses is up to the year 2050, with special consideration of the target years 2020, 2030 and 2050. The ...
The overall project objective is to increase the cohesion and integration in the Bulgaria-Serbia cross-border region by promoting sustainable use of locally available forest and agriculture biomass as a resource for renewable energy production, based on exchange of know-how, best practices and wider stakeholders involvement. Main specific objectives are: to raise the awareness of forest owners, farmers, distributors of fuelwood and owners of sawmills, as well as of the decision-...
The new EU 2020 sustainable development vision provides an opportunity to tackle the current financial and economic crisis through maintaining local jobs and wealth. The regional authorities demonstrate their willingness to implement sound local sustainable energy policies, especially through their participation in the Covenant of Mayors. They are committing themselves to address the problem and become a driving force and frontrunner in the fight against climate change. It is important for them ...
The project ESOLi aimed to raise the awareness regarding intelligent street lighting and accelerate the use of the technologies across Europe. Project partners will assess energy savings in different settings, help to coordinate procurement initiatives, speed up the development of legislation and standards, and draw up a list of customers’ requirements. Therefore, the specific project objectives are to: Increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions in outdoor lighting; ...
SF-Energy Invest project aimed at the increasing of the share of Structural and Cohesion Funds (SCF) money that is spent on sustainable energy within the final phase of the programming period 2007-2013 as well as at the increasing of the share of the total budget allocated to renewable energy and energy efficiency in the SCF programming period 2014-2020. For the achievement of that, the following particular objectives were set: Enhanced awareness in the EU  on the benefits of ful...
BSERC was selected by the Ministry of Economy, Energy and Tourism, through a public tendering procedure, to elaborate the project for a National Programme for stabilization and development of the district heating sector in the Republic of Bulgaria till 2020.  The Programme had been developed according to the Energy Strategy of the Republic of Bulgaria till 2020. It aimed at the creation of conditions for effective development of centralized district heating for the purpose of generation...
The Concerted Action for the Energy Services Directive was launched by Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) to provide a structured framework for the exchange of information between the 27 Member States and Croatia during their implementation of the Energy Services Directive (ESD). This active forum aimed to enable each Member State to share its knowledge and experience, and draw on that of others, in order to adopt the most successful approaches towards implementing the Directive and avoid ...
The goal of the project was to accelerate and make more sustainable RES-e utilization in Bulgaria, through identification of an appropriate regulatory policy. The particular objectives were to develop scenarios for RES-e penetration and to elaborate regulatory strategies for sustainable RES-e development. The scope of activities included collection of information about RES-e technical potential, selection of scenarios, scenario modelling with minimal cost, results assessment and developme...
The project’s primary objective was to involve interested parties throughout the EU in the debate on how to optimise the use of renewable electricity, with a view to establishing a long-term, stable deployment of electricity from renewable resources (RES-E). With the need to develop a common European vision, the project also set out to identify best practice for the implementation of the different types of support such as feed-in tariffs, premium systems and quota obligations, based on green c...
