WARSAW—ManagEnergy held a workshop in the Polish capital this week for the future advisers of the county's new national energy advisory service. The event was organised with the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOŚiGW), the main architects of the advisory service.
Regular readers of ManagEnergy will have noticed our recent focus on sustainable heating and cooling. This is an important topic now in Europe, with Member States due to submit the first national heating and cooling roadmaps by the end of 2015, and a lot of opportunities for project funding. Also a high level conference in Brussels focusing on the role of heating and cooling in the European Energy Transition will take place 26-27 February – not to be missed!
And we’ve been spreading the word – check out some of the campaign results so far, and look out for upcoming features in specialist media Cogeneration and Onsite Power Production and HOT/COOL magazine…and we’re just getting started!
The 2014 ManagEnergy Annual Conference was held on the morning of 24 June, the first session of EU Sustainable Energy Week 2014. Jointly organised with the Covenant of Mayors and Smart Cities & Communities, this year’s conference was once again very well attended (more than 350 participants plus web streaming) and focused on the problem of energy poverty, the role of local and regional authorities in addressing it, through energy efficiency and other means, and innovative financing solutions for sustainable energy projects at the local and regional level.
On 24 June 2014, the European Commission announced the six winners of the 2014 Sustainable Energy Europe (SEE) and ManagEnergy Awards. Selected from a total of 342 submissions, winners were announced during a ceremony hosted by EU Energy Commissioner Günther H. Oettinger, at the Charlemagne building, European Commission premises in Brussels.
