BEEP participates in the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW)
The ENI CBC Med Programme, alongside its 8 projects dealing with energy efficiency, has been selected to participate in the European Sustainable Energy Week, the biggest annual event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe, to be held from 26th to 30th September 2022 in Brussels and online. Organized by the European Commission, this event comprises a series of activities aimed at building a secure energy future for Europe.
More information and registration HERE.
The Programme will participate in two different ways:
- On the 26th and 27th of September, we will be holding a stand at the Energy Fair.
- On the 28th September from 9:30 to 11:00, we will organize a session as part of the high-level Policy Conference under the title ‘Energy Efficiency and renewable energies to drive building energy performance: local examples from the Mediterranean regions’.
About the BEEP project:
BEEP project aims at strengthening the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) to enhance energy efficiency in buildings. The testing of this emerging technology on built heritage will be performed to demonstrate its scalability to the entire building stock. The project will provide public administrations with a powerful method for the energy rehabilitation of public buildings to be supported with private funds through the Energy Performance Contracting (*). The project main outcome will be an innovative methodology based on the integration of emerging technologies tested on 9 heritage public buildings located in Italy, Spain, Cyprus, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, and Egypt.
(*) Energy performance contracting (EPC) is a mechanism for organising the energy efficiency financing. The EPC involves an Energy Service Company (ESCO) which provides various services, such as finances and guaranteed energy savings. The remuneration of the ESCO depends on the achievement of the guaranteed savings. The ESCO stays involved in the measurement and verification process for the energy savings in the repayment period. ESCO and energy performance contracting are mostly found in the public sector and to a lesser extent in the industrial and commercial building sectors (Hilke and Ryan, 2012).
