Central Europe has a high potential for deploying local and regional energy systems based on renewable energy generation and energy conservation but it is important to trigger bottom up initiatives improving energy efficiency approaches. Attention is being paid to the improvement of energy efficiency (EE) of existing buildings as they are accountable for large electric power consumption with an annual growth rate of around 4 percent. It is one of the major challenges for public authorities to reduce energy in existing public buildings without significant construction works. Therefore, public authorities need to be equipped with simple but useful tools and methodologies for proper energy management. The BOOSTEE-CE (Boosting Energy Efficiency in Central European Cities through Smart Energy Management) project aims to improve the governance of EE in existing public buildings and ultimately reduce energy consumption in different central European areas, especially those less advanced in low carbon approach. The project will thus developed an online platform to perform energy audit of public building and monitor and improve energy floods.
The BOOSTEE-CE project, funded by Interreg Central Europe programme, has 13 partners (7 countries in Central Europe: Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Poland) and 2 associated partners. The total budget of the project is 2.2 Mil Eur.
The project features 8 pilot actions (PA) which will support the testing and evaluation of the project activities and outcomes. The platform will rely on 3D building models and energy information provided by smart meters.
