Event Details

Context

In the context of the overall EU decarbonisation agenda, the increase of the share of renewable energies and efficiency in the use of energy play a crucial role. More concretely, achieving global leadership in renewable energies and energy efficiency first principle have been placed at the heart of the Energy Union strategy. They represent important goals of the “Clean energy package”, the European Commission’s set of measures to realise a clean energy transition.

Buildings account for 40% of Europe's energy consumption. The Commission proposal aiming at speeding up the renovation rate of existing buildings with a view to decarbonise the building stock is currently under discussion in the European Parliament.

Objectives

The objective of this webinar is to show how local energy companies actively contribute to the promotion of energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy in buildings, focusing on two countries - Belgium and Germany.

Agenda

12h00

Ms Jana Cicmanova, Covenant of Mayors Office & Ms Ludovica Sara Fondi, the European Federation of Local Energy Companies (CEDEC)

Welcome & Introduction

12h05

Mr Patrick Claessens, Director of the Network Access Management Department at Sibelga

 

Sibelga is the only distribution network operator for electricity and natural gas in the 19 communes of the Brussels Capital Region. Patrick will present the situation in the Brussels Capital Region, where the promotion of investments in apartment buildings is less attractive compared to single houses, due to the current legal framework.  Upon the request of the regional authority, Sibelga proposed an alternative framework to overcome those difficulties.

12h25

Mr Fabian Schmitz-Grethlein, Deputy Chief of the Energy Department at the German Association of Local Public Utilities (VKU)

Fabian will address the specificities of the district heating and cooling sector, as well as e-mobility and measures to increase energy efficiency in buildings. In these sectors it is particularly important that local energy companies and communities work closely together.

12h45-13h00

Participants

Discussion and Q&A session.

Organiser

Covenant of Mayors Office

The Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy brings together thousands of local and regional authorities voluntarily committed to implementing EU climate and energy objectives on their territory.

New signatories now pledge to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030 and to adopt an integrated approach to tackling mitigation and adaptation to climate change.

The Covenant of Mayors Office (CoMO) is managed by a consortium of local and regional authorities networks, led by Energy Cities, composed of Climate Alliance, CEMR, Eurocities, Fedarene and ICLEI Europe.
