With the aim of sharing common ideas, best practices and create new knowledge to accelerate smart energy services, the SmartSPIN project is organising a two clustering events– EU Project Clustering event: Smart Energy Services – on 25th April and 17th May 2023. This event brings together top research organisations as well as industrial partners to present the project results and the new smart energy services that will improve the energy efficiency and flexibility in European buildings.
Have you ever wondered how much energy a building required to provide electricity, heating or air conditioning – some of the few things we take for granted in life? In the European Union buildings independently are considered to be the largest consumer, accounting for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of the generated carbon emissions. According to the latest studies, 75% of all building in the European Union are energy inefficient, and only 1% of them are renovated each year.
Apart from this scenario, the ongoing energy crisis and the urge to become climate-neutral by 2050 have accelerated the interest of the European Union to contribute to smart energy solutions with the aim of guarantee energy security and affordability.
Given the important role smart energy services can play in driving a greener, smarter and consumer-centric energy, several EU-funded projects are currently working to scale up knowledge to secure smart energy services in unleash the energy efficiency and flexibility potential of European buildings.
The Smart EPC project will bring its contribution on April 25th, examining the transition of local public authorities towards smart sustainable cities.
Smart EPC brings together FEDARENE and its members REGEA (HR), ESCAN (SP), AURA-EE (FR). The project’s objective is to develop standardized energy performance contracting (EPC) documentation for integrating energy and non-energy related services.
