Energy Efficiency Directive: Information and Training (as it relates to Article 17)
The publication 'Verduurzamingsmaatregelen voor bestaande scholen' contains a list of potential measures to increase the sustainability of school buildings. It includes measures on for example behavior, O&M, insulation, heating and cooling, lighting, etc.
As a local actor, the territory of the "Grand Paris Seine Ouest" (GPSO) created, in conjunction with its energy division (GPSOe), a local energy agency (LEA), working with individuals, professionals and local authorities on its territory. It has put in place a local energy strategy.
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.
The INSMART methodology was developed in the INSMART FP7 Smart City project. The objective is to use a scientifically sound approach in developing Sustainable Energy Action plans a city level. The methodology covers all the energy consumption sectors within a city (buildings, transport, municipal buildings, other uses) and local energy generation (solar water heaters, PV systems etc).
The objective of the EnPC-INTRANS is to develop local capacities of the public sector at the level of municipalities to set up and use EnPC models for financing of their investments in EE improvements of public municipalities and services. EnPC-INTRANS capacity building concepts and tools are jointly developed on the basis of stakeholder consultations, cooperation, and international exchange of concepts, ideas, and experience.

The EnergyPLAN model is an input/output computer model for Energy Systems Analysis. It simulates the operation of national energy systems on an hourly basis, including the electricity, heating, cooling, industry and transport sectors. The main purpose is to assist the design of national energy planning strategies on the basis of technical and economic analyses. General inputs are demands, RES, energy plant capacities, costs and a optional different regulation strategies emphasizing import/export and excess electricity production.
Capacity building of local government to take action regarding climate change and energy sources - from planning and action monitoring - is the primary goal of this tool. Capacity Covenant assumes development of communities powered by renewable energy across Europe. This support helps create chains of added value at regional level through improving energy efficiency and using renewable local energy sources.
