Energy Efficiency Directive: Information and Training (as it relates to Article 17)
Energy renovation of existing buildings is one of the priorities within the development of sustainable use of energy. Due to the importance and the size of the task, the Ministry of Infrastructure (MZI) in Slovenia established an Office for energy renovation of buildings in October of 2015. The office consists of experts from the fields of construction, engineering, law, and economics, which together manage all aspects of this measure.
EMIS is a web application for monitoring and analysis of energy and water consumption data in public sector buildings and as such provides a transparent overview and control of energy consumption in all public sector buildings that makes it an inevitable tool for Systematic Energy Management in the Public sector. Data contained in EMIS are used for many energy performance calculations, analysis and continuous oversight and control of energy usage.
Analyses and recommendations for local budgets with aim of encouraging energy efficiency projects, Croatia
The research topic of this Guidebook is the adjustment of the local budgets in order for them to become supportive of the energy efficiency projects in public services. The main goal of the research was to provide suggestions and recommendations based on analysis of the current situation in Croatia and the comparative review of the experience of selected countries.
The Energy Advisory Handbook was prepared as a starting point for future Energy Advisers, i.e. participants of the Energy Advisers Course. The manual contains all the information handled within the Course that provides basic knowledge of the thermal protection of buildings, energy consumption in heating, cooling, ventilation and domestic hot water, and electricity consumption for lighting and electrical appliances. Special chapters are dedicated to the application of renewable energy in households, as well as the economic assessment of energy efficiency projects.
The "shared energy advice' is a specific to small and medium-sized communities service which is to share the energy of a specialized technician skills. This helps communities lacking sufficient internal resources to implement an energy policy under control, and to take concrete action on their heritage to achieve savings.
This tool is intended for the municipalities with less than 10,000 inhabitants. The benefits of the shared energy (CEP) consulting :
Handbook provides a classification of the energy efficiency projects in the budgets of local and regional government. It describes the process of preparation of energy efficiency projects, their implementation in the budgets of local and regional governments. Additionally, it provides examples of good practice energy efficiency projects funded by local and regional governments.
It is a contract model for energy services and integral maintenance for buildings of public ownership. The aim is to promote efficiency in the final energy use in the buildings of the government and overcome the legal, administrative and technical barriers encountered by the public administrations in contracting these type of energy services.
The purpose of this guide is to promote and disseminate the technology of district heating and / or cooling networks, as well as to advise the potential promoters of this type of installations from a methodology that establishes the criteria that should be considered when designing a district network. In addition to this "basic guide", the Integrated Guide for the development of district heating and cooling networks has been developed.
Technical guidelines on Energy efficiency in lighting in different type of buildings: offices, educational centers and hospitals.
An informative guide directed to the citizens to make known the contribution of domotics to energy saving and to promote the responsible consumption of energy. The guide was written by CEDOM, the Spanish Association of Domotics, in collaboration with the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving, IDAE.
