EnercitEE at the Committee of the Regions in Brussels

„Practical Approaches to more energy efficiency for European Cities and Citizens“

On 24 April 2013 EnercitEE hosted a quite special dissemination event at the Committee of the Regions (CoR) Building in Brussels.


The idea of such an event was to ensure that interested European, regional and local authorities/stakeholders get to know EnercitEE, its activities and achievements and take this knowledge back to their regions. Therefore the EnercitEE partnership organised a lunch reception in connection with a meeting of one of the CoR commissions – the Commission for Environment, Climate Change and Energy (ENVE).

FIPREC – Workshop in Marzabotto, March 8th 2013

One of FIPREC goals is to encourage and support municipalities to produce by-laws and local regulations promoting energy savings, and study ways that help avoiding to put too heavy a burden on the municipal budget.

On March 8, 2013 a meeting was organized in Marzabotto, BO, aimed at informing the municipal governments about our project and its opportunities. A Region Emilia Romagna representative, Mr. Attilio Raimondi, introduced the actions the Region develops to support local authorities; some tech solutions were then presented. Among them, a public lightening system, the wide opportunities that demotic offers in view of energy savings, and building renovations.


For the latter point, an interesting suggestion was presented in view of developing bylaws and municipal regulations encouraging the citizens to consider energy savings building renovations. An architecture study – Officio Architettura, Castel S. Pietro, BO – first illustrated a detailed example of a building renovation implementing substantial energy savings transformations, and then, in view of considering energy savings without financial burden for the municipal budget, they presented the idea of cubic contents credit.
