15th of June 2015
Venue: Representation of the State North Rhine-Westphalia to the European Union
1000 Brussels, Rue Montoyer 47
The event is organized in conjunction with European Sustainable Energy Week
The seminar is organized by the Regional Office of Silesia in Brussels and Opolskie Region (as South Poland House in Brussels) in cooperation with the States of North Rhine-Westphalia and of Rhineland - Palatinate with the support of the Polish Science Contact Agency "PolSCA" of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
Energy efficiency in cities, municipalities and regions is receiving an ever growing attention across the EU, while the European Union is designing its plans for an Energy Union which will also include a framework for energy efficiency. At local level, energy efficiency opportunities range from the building sector to electricity and transport. Cities and municipalities are making a huge variety of experiences with action fields like e-mobility and local heating, energy efficient “passive houses” and innovative street lamps. Local actors, municipalities and stakeholders alike, are taking action in various fields – what best practices and approaches can they learn from each other?
The aim of this seminar is to provide an opportunity for local, regional and EU stakeholders to discuss options, best practices and solutions in the field of energy efficiency applications, also in connection with the use of renewable energy. The event will also serve as a platform to discuss research and innovation opportunities of the organizing regions in view of possible collaborations with other regional partners.
