On 5 April 2016 the JRC presented the interactive and collaborative online European Energy Efficiency Platform. This beta platform is conceived to fill the gap opened by scattered data and fragmented knowledge resulting from a rapidly growing energy efficiency market. It is expected to be both a one-stop shop for information retrieval and a meeting point for experts to exchange data and reduce redundant activities.
HOW TO DEVELOP A SUSTAINABLE ENERGY ACTION PLAN (SEAP) IN THE EASTERN PARTNERSHIP AND CENTRAL ASIAN CITIES ─ GUIDEBOOK, PART III TECHNICAL MEASURES FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND RENEWABLE
The Part III of the guidebook has presented a collection of measures to improve energy efficiency and reduce the dependency on fossil fuels by using renewable energies. All measures collected in this chapter have been tested and successfully implemented by several cities in Europe. As the reader will probably notice, each measure has not been described in depth, but rather a collection of references and links to more specific documents from reliable sources are given in each chapter. The measures proposed in this document can be applied to the building, public services and the industry sectors. The technologies available for the heat and cooling are also described along with technologies that optimize energy use in municipal water and wastewater systems through cost-effective efficiency actions. Measures in the transport sector are described in Part I of these guidelines. Some cities with a wide expertise in energy management will probably find these measures obvious. Even in this case, we think some measures, or the references provided in this guidebook, will help them to go beyond the objectives of the Covenant of Mayors.
