Transcript of Copy of Storms Review

Funding areas 2010
Energy efficiency (SAVE)
Energy-efficient transport (STEER)
Renewable energy sources (ALTENER)
Integrated initiatives

Energy-efficient buildings
Consumer behaviour

Consumer behaviour
Actions targeted to consumers:
helping them choose the most energy efficient products
Or raising awareness on issues covered by the energy efficiency policies STEER
Energy-efficient transport
Capacity building + learning
Capacity-building on clean transport
Mutual learning of practitioners
Support to academic teaching
Training for local / regional agencies and
actions to have them offer new services on transport
Energy-efficient buildings
Actions to improve the operational efficiency of existing:
non-residential buildings
Or multi-residential buildings Energy-efficient transport

Safe walking & cycling
Auditing & certification of urban mobility policies
Eco-driving schemes
More efficient freight distribution
Focus of ALTENER in 2010 will be on actions which contribute to the implementation of the new RES Directive.
RES electricity (and CHP), to increase share of renewable electricity in Europe's final energy consumption.
RES in buildings, to accelerate growth of markets for renewable energy systems, including PV, solar heating, biomass, and geothermal in buildings.
Bioenergy, to increase the quantities of sustainable bio-resources in energy markets.
Renewables in buildings Bio-energy

Bring untapped bio-resources onto the market
Implement local and regional bio-energy plans
Stimulate investments and business agreements in sustainable supply chains for solid biomass, biogas and liquid biofuels
Strategic initiatives to promote quality, standards and sustainability schemes for bio-energy products
Encourage biogas injection into gas grids, streamline procedures for grid connections and quality monitoring
Accelerate deployment of biomass, geothermal and solar for heating / cooling, and PV electricity in energy efficient buildings
Promote new building codes or ordinances
Capacity building for local / regional authorities
Targeted information on support measures, and on the benefits, costs and performance of renewable energy systems / equipment
Stimulate investments in renewable energy for groups of buildings to achieve economies of scale
Promote renewables in district heating / cooling

[Note: biomass supply chains are addressed under “Bioenergy”]
Integrated Initiatives
Local energy leadership
Financing intelligent energy in housing
Local energy leadership
Large-scale networking and capacity building activities by networks of local authorities
Capacity building and exchange of experience between experienced local authorities and ‘learning' local authorities. Projects must include :
Institutionalisation of sustainable energy policies
Actual implementation of sustainable energy action plans in 'learning' bodies

Strengthening capacities for financing intelligent energy in housing Intelligent Energy Europe in a nutshell

€730 million from 2007-13
Supports EU renewable energy and energy efficiency policies and helps reach the 2020 targets
Encourages the uptake of proven intelligent energy solutions
Is not a technology development programme, unlike FP7
Works to make Europe more competitive and innovative

Development and implementation of tailor made financial schemes, preferably revolving funds, aimed to improve the energy performance of housing
Actions must result in funds which are fully operational within the duration of the IEE project
Actions must be led by authorities committed to set up and/or run the financial schemes
Priority is given to actions led by regional or national public authorities with management competences on ERDF implementation
Active engagement of financial institutions and local authorities is important
New Key Action, aiming to exploit amended ERDF regulation (4% of allocations on sustainable energy in buildings)

The winds spin around an "eye." The "eye" is the center of the storm... the center of the vortex. It is the calmest part. It has only light winds and fair weather. Renewable electricity (and CHP)
Streamline procedures for
grid connection, extension, reinforcement; measurement and payment construction and planning authorisations
Integrate authorisation and grid connection procedures
Address competing stakeholder interests and concerns, including integrated and long term planning
Strategic analyses and monitoring of policies, markets and costs
Summing up
Define project outputs
Discuss and approach possible Scottish Partners
Discuss and approach possible EU partners
Organise Scottish Workshop inviting EU partners or visit EU Partners
