ENEFIRST webinar "Energy Efficiency First in practice: implementing integrated approaches"

ENEFIRST webinar


On 28 September 2021, the European Commission published a new recommendation and guidelines entitled “Energy Efficiency First: from principles to practice”. This webinar will complement these new resources with two examples from Croatia and Sweden, discussing how implementing Energy Efficiency First (EE1st, or similar concepts) is about adopting more integrated approaches, respectively for investment decisions and for local energy planning.

This webinar will also present the latest outputs from the ENEFIRST project that provides implementation maps and policy guidelines to support the design and implementation of integrated approaches for EE1st.

Last but not least, an overview of how Member States are implementing EE1st will be presented from the brand new EE1st facility of the ODYSSEE-MURE project.

Ahead of this webinar, you can already have a look at examples from Ireland and UK presented at the first ENEFIRST webinar, and from France and the US at the second ENEFIRST webinar.



Who should attend?

Policymakers, experts, engineers, researchers and consultants, development managers and sustainability professionals who want to know more about the EE1st principle, why and how it can be implemented.

Why attend?

You will gain insights into the application of the EE1st principle through practical examples, in particular:

What policy approaches can be used to implement EE1st?

Why and how to adopt integrated approaches in line with the EE1st principle?

What can the EE1st principle change in the design and implementation of investment schemes?

What can the EE1st principle change in energy planning?
