Energy Efficiency Directive: Information and Training (as it relates to Article 17)
PUBLEnEf project Final Report
Departing from the transposition and implementation process of the European Union Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), the role of the multilevel governance is of utmost importance, as all policy layers (national, regional and local) contribute to the overall energy saving target of each MS.
To support this process, a key message to local and regional authorities is that once their MS transpose the EED fully, it will be their task to ensure that national legislators implement it.
Installation of renewable energy systems in the public and residential buildings, Poland
Swiss-Polish Cooperation Programme is a non-refundable foreign aid granted by Switzerland to Poland as one of the new EU member states, in order to reduce economic and social disparities existing between Poland and more developed EU countries, and to reduce the differences on the Polish territory–between urban centers and structurally underdeveloped regions.
Sustainable Energy Action Plans, France
As a local player, the Plaine Commune, created on 1 January 2016 within the Grand Paris metropolis, set up a Local Energy and Climate Agency (LECA, June 2012) to assist public and private actors in their energy saving and energy rehabilitation. The LECA Intends to contribute to the preservation of natural resources, the implementation of the energy transition and climate adaptation of the Plain Commune area.

Sustainability in integrated development, Netherlands
The municipality of Zuidhorn applies an integrated development model for the redevelopment of the
Thermal Modernisation and Refurbishment Fund, Poland
Thermal Modernisation is usually highly profitable, however, it initially requires incurring significant costs, which is why many building owners may not implement thermo-modernisation actions without financial assistance.
Sustainco Tool Kit
The Sustainco project aims to increase the visibility and understanding of the Near Zero Energy Building (NZEB) philosophy, with special emphasis on rural areas. This will be done by providing easy access to practical information on how to build or retrofit buildings to reach NZEB standards. SustainCo also aims to increase the visibility of front-runners, for both new-build and retrofits, with the aim of capacity- and confidence-building in the public sector. To find out more, check out our Toolkits and case studies, which you will find in the menu to the right.
RETScreen® International is a free, universal tool developed in collaboration with many government, industry and university experts. The program is managed and has ongoing support from Canmore ENERGY at the Canadian Ministry of Natural Resources. On the territory of Poland, training for users is led by the Foundation for Energy Efficiency. The organization is the translator of educational materials available at www.retscreen.net. There is also a free e-learning course available at www.e-szkolenia.fewe.pl.
Streetlight-EPC project publication: EPC, facilitation, lessons learnt, implemented projects
This brochure offers an overview of the outcomes of the Streetlight-EPC project. It conveys key lessons learnt for developing successful regional EPC facilitation services. It also presents concise examples of 24 street lighting and indoor lighting refurbishment projects implemented in 8 countries in the context of the Streetlight-EPC project. The majority of the projects were implemented using various forms of EPC (Energy Performance Contracting).

RE-SEEties energy forecasting tool
The RE-SEEties tool is a set of energy forecasting equations that was developed by CRES in the framework of the RE-SEEties project (SEE Programme). Its aim is to estimate future energy needs which can be fed into the ICLEI tool in order to calculate emissions also for future years. For the residential, commercial and transport sectors a series of equations have been developed by CRES to estimate future needs. If necessary longer term projections correction of emission factors may also be provided.
