SOLE will gather experts to promote energy efficient technologies through good practices in public buildings
The Royal Scientific Society (RSS), in collaboration with the entire partnership of SOLE project, are organizing an event entitled “Promoting Energy Efficient Technologies through Good Practices in Public Buildings” that will be held online the next 31st of March 2022, from 09:00 to 15:30 CET.
At a time of high rising energy prices and uncertainty over raw material supplies from Russia following the outbreak of war in Ukraine, the issues of energy efficiency and energy savings become even more relevant.
The event, after a project overview performed by the lead partner ANCI TOSCANA, will focus on the energy upgrading requalification plans of 7 selected public buildings, both from technical and financial point of view thanks to the contribution of technical experts of SOLE partners. The Jordanian partner, RSS, will be presenting a short video explaining the steps that the project has gone through as they are in the stage of finalizing the works of improving the energy performance of Iskan Faiha School, a public school in Madaba, located 33 km south-west of the capital Amman.
This initiative will also support the official launch of the ACT GREEN campaign to encourage the behavioural change of people relating to the energy waste reduction. ACT GREEN is aimed at achieving an impact on the people’s mindsets and enhancing awareness of the proper use of current technologies and in some cases providing low to no cost measures that can affect the energy consumption. A pack of tools and suggestions will be presented, including an animation video that makes the campaign appealing, to spur both managers and users of public buildings to make the campaign a success. Each partner is going to realize the campaign in its country but whoever is invited to promote it at his or her workspace or individually at home.
A special guest during the event will be Rich Hurst of Durham County Council, UK who will present their studies on behavioral changes regarding energy efficiency in the framework of Rebus Project financed under Interreg Europe program.
The virtual meeting will be targeted to stakeholders, energy technicians and the general public and will also be an occasion to examine and debate about the actual difficulties in the field of energy requalification, such as the rising costs and supplying of construction materials.
The participants outside the partnership of SOLE project will be able to gain important insights into the issues at stake and assess the possible transferability of actions in this field in their respective Countries.
