Capacity Building Workshop #4

Prioritize energy efficiency measures in public buildings: the PrioritEE toolbox

15 JUNE 2021 H. 10:00 - 12:00 CEST

The capacity building workshop intends to train participants with a set of tools, developed by the Interreg MED PrioritEE modular project to help regional and local public authorities prioritize energy efficiency measures in public buildings.

During the workshop, participants will be introduced to:

  • Technology analytical database which incorporates technical solutions to improve Energy Efficiency in Municipal Public Buildings split by end-use: lighting, space heating, space cooling, water heating and cooking.

  • Decision Support Tool (DST) to prioritize Energy Efficiency measures divided among nine areas. The DST provides an overview of results ranked by savings, investment costs and return of investment for each building and building typology allowing also the evaluation of different combinations of Energy Efficiency measures. Users can either fill only basic input which will be supplemented with a list of assumptions from the toolbox's database, or fill-in also advanced inputs for more accurate results.

  • How-to Briefs, 7 guides for the implementation of selected best practices. These are short documents compiling in a transparent and easy to use manner useful information on: Stakeholder engagement, Sustainable Energy Action Plans, Innovative financing, Roof-top uses, Building envelope, Behavioural changes and Centralized energy management.
  • Repository of Good Practices 
which presents a list of strategic actions for sustainable development awareness and behavioural changes

The training session will focus on the testing of the decision support tool, so far available in English, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Greek and Croatian
