Workshop - Horizon 2020:
Lessons learned and main priorities.
Thu17Mar2016Fri18Mar2016Federal Foreign Office, Berlin
In order to discuss applicable concepts for an intelligent, sustainable and cost-efficient energy transition worldwide in the light of the successful outcome of COP21 in Paris, the German Federal Government invites the international energy elite to Berlin for the second time.
The Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue is the pivotal international energy transition summit, facilitating an in-depth high-level dialogue for the transition towards a secure, ecologically friendly and economically successful energy system based on energy efficiency and renewable energy.
With a focus on international energy stakeholders, the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue aims to develop solutions towards an international energy transition. The conference will strengthen the intergovernmental dialogue and aims to foster the exchange between high-level decision-makers from governments and regulatory bodies and leaders of businesses, associations, science and academia as well as NGOs and civil society who are active in promoting the implementation of energy transitions in their respective countries.
The European Climate Foundation, Chance for Buildings and Bulgarian Green Building Council invite you to the first Central and Eastern European Energy Efficiency Forum, which will take place from 22 to 25 June 2016 in Balchik on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast.
Share your knowledge with the region: What went well and what went wrong?
What can others learn from your experience? What is the way forward with energy efficiency?
What is C4E Forum?
In short—not your average conference. Our aim is to create Central and Eastern Europe’s first community building event on energy efficiency in buildings. There are so many interesting efficiency projects happening in the region—it is time to share and build upon them!
- Half-week interactive programme combining practical sessions, creative workshops and evening plenaries with high-level speakersand plenty of informal networking opportunities
- Professionals and those interested in energy efficiency in buildings from government, industry, NGOs, think-tanks, financial institutions, etc.from across CEE region all in one place
- Hosted on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast – a breathtaking location at an affordable cost
Do you need to extend your knowledge and network? C4E Forum will help you do that. Look for more details at http://c4eforum.net
One thing that makes C4E Forum special is interaction among participants. We encourage all participants to consider submission of presentations about interesting developments in energy efficiency, either government, business or community initiatives, in the wide Central and Eastern Europe region.

EnR Regular & Full Meeting, including Chair&Troika Meeting
EnR/EPA network workshop in Brussels, on the 8th of March 2017 on GHG mitigation and decarbonisation.
Sixth Annual Conference "Romanian Energy Day 2017" under the title "Regional cooperation, a key driver for Energy Union: Mechanisms and initiatives for the energy industry and policy makers"
Launch of the EU Energy Poverty Observatory (EPOV)29 January 2018LocationCharlemagne Building, Rue de la Loi 170, 1040 Brussels
More than 50 million households in the European Union are struggling to attain adequate warmth, pay their utility bills on time and live in homes free of damp and mould. Awareness of energy poverty is rising in Europe and has been identified as a policy priority by a number of EU institutions, most notably in the European Commission’s 'Clean Energy for All Europeans' legislative package.
The creation of an EU Energy Poverty Observatory is part of the Commission's efforts to address energy poverty across EU countries. The Observatory aims to provide a user-friendly and open-access resource that will promote public engagement on the issue of energy poverty, disseminate information and good practice, facilitate knowledge sharing among stakeholders, as well as support informed decision making at local, national and EU level. The Observatory is being developed by a consortium led by the University of Manchester and includes, as core partners, Ecofys, National Energy Action, the European Policy Centre, Intrasoft International and the Wuppertal Institut.
The launch event (14:00-19:00) will provide stakeholders and the wider public with information on the objectives and instruments of the Observatory and be an opportunity to obtain feedback on their expectations of it.
It will feature the participation of the Commission's Vice-President for the Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič, Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete, and Director-General for Energy Dominique Ristori, along with numerous other high-profile speakers.

Financing energy efficiency in Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria
Bucharest, 1 February 2018
This event aims to share best practices from Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria as well as further countries on how energy efficiency investments can be financed. This includes the use of private funds and innovative financing instruments, notably in the building and industry sectors. Speakers will focus on practical experiences in developing and structuring investment programmes and the event will allow time for debate. The event contributes to the new cooperation on energy efficiency initiated by the CESEC.
The event is organised by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) in partnership with the Ministry of Energy of Romania, the Ministry of Regional Development, Public Administration and European Funds of Romania, the Romanian Energy Regulatory Authority and the UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative. It is part of the Sustainable Energy Investment Forums contract, funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme.
