In early April 2011, representatives of five EnercitEE regions met in Växjö / Sweden for the first EnercitEE symposium in order to discuss and exchange their experiences with regard to “Energy-Efficient heat/power generation & distribution”. Around 30 persons from the partnership and the sub-projects took part.

The first symposium covered a very broad field from combined heat and power generation (CHP) to innovative energy generation, covering district heating concepts to refurbishment of pipelines.

The symposium was well prepared by EnercitEE’s partners – each providing information on regional energy consumption, production, targets and policies. This was the basis for the presentation and discussion at the symposium. In the lively discussion, it became clear that the situation in each region is very different. This concerns the available figures, the political scope, potentials and challenges.

Three EnercitEE symposiums will take place in total. The next symposium is planned for the end of January 2012 in Annecy / France where we will concentrate on ‘communication and motivation’ (citizens as well as local authorities). The 3rd EnercitEE symposium will cover ‘EE buildings and innovation’ and will be organised in October 2012 in Leipzig / Germany.
