The CommONEnergy webinar will go through the 24 technologies installed and tested by the project in four demo cases across Europe, as well as the tools and strategies developed to support their implementation and assess the environmental and social impact, and finally present the related benefits, such as improving comfort, reducing costs and energy consumption.
The project CommONEnergy (2013-2017), funded by the European Union under the FP7 programme, focused on transforming shopping centres into energy efficient and high-indoor-environmental-quality buildings, by developing smart renovation strategies and solutions.
The depletion of fossil fuels along with the increasing demand of all economic sectors and the effects that energy consumption has on the environment are the main causes for energy efficiency to play a key role regarding competitiveness, sustainable development, climate change mitigation, and energy security.
Industrial energy efficiency has always been about people. The latest technologies often get the most attention, but it’s the people who manage the plant, find the opportunities, develop the solutions, and make the decisions – large and small – that determine the efficiency of today’s facilities. It’s more challenging than ever to go it alone and that is why in 2017, we’re focused on developing the community of people involved in industrial energy efficiency.
Accelerating Adoption of Energy-Efficient Lighting, Appliances and Equipment: An Introduction to Proven Technology and Policy Solutions
The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with UN Environment, is hosting a webinar highlighting the findings of six new policy guides developed by the United for Efficiency initiative. The guides address indoor and outdoor lighting, room air conditioners, household refrigerators, electric motors and motor systems, transformers and fundamental policies that are applicable to all of these technologies.
