The "putting energy efficiency first" principle set out in the Clean Energy for all Europeans package of the EU Commission, is bound to accelerate the multilevel implementation of energy efficiency policies across Europe. To this end, technical assistance provided through the Project Development Assistance priority under the Horizon 2020 programme and through the EIB-ELENA facility plays a crucial role in building the required expertise for preparing substantial energy efficiency investment programmes.
The PUBLENEF project is as well supporting this dynamic with a range of national, regional and local energy efficiency roadmaps, which tackle the specific needs of public authorities and utilize best practices from across Europe. Investments in the transition to energy efficient streetlighting is in particular starting to be a priority in many regions. During this webinar, the EU Commission's and EIB's technical assistance offer will be presented in detail. Moreover, Regional Energy Agencies will present key challenges and solutions when trying to scale up investments in energy efficient streetlighting.
