PROMOTING ENERGY EFFICIENT PUBLIC BUILDINGS IN CENTRAL EU


Addressing poor energy performance of public buildings is at the core of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive - EED and Energy Performance Building Directive - EPBD, but it is also becoming a growing financial issue in central European countries. In order to address this issue, eCentral will support key stakeholders in better understanding benefits of nZEB - nearly Zero Energy Buildings. The project will prove that the nZEB approach, although innovative, is an optimal and cost-effective solution for the renovation and construction of public buildings.

THE PROJECT
AIMS TO


  • capitalise on results of previous and ongoing EU initiatives
  • develop an Energy Performance Certificate - EPC Tool for public authorities
  • deploy and promote innovative financing schemes
  • develop training programmes
  • assist nZEB projects
  • develop building renovation strategies
  • establish cooperation with scientific institutions and other nZEB initiatives

eCentral Symposium

13 June, Graz, Austria

Symposium on innovative financing schemes for energy efficient public buildings 

Save the date!

Top-level speakers will introduce their practical experiences, lessons learned and provide recommendations for public authorities on how to make best use of alternative financing instruments

Using innovative financing schemes for up-grading the energy efficiency of public buildings can be one key activity to fulfill the goals of the European Energy Perfomance of Buildings Directive on a municipal level. Alternative financing approaches such as public private partnerships, energy performance contracting and crowdfunding as well as the ELENA-initiative from the European Investment bank provide new instruments to transform public buildings to nearly zero energy buildings and reduce the strain on public budget.
