In April last year, the City of Ljubljana agreed a public-private partnership (PPP) with a consortium of GGE and Petrol for the energy retrofitting of public buildings in the municipality. The EUR 14.9 million project will deliver energy savings of 8,245 MWh annually and a reduction of 2,956 tons of CO2 emissions each year.

This guide shows how to identify measures where energy and cost savings can be easily made with little or no cost. It is designed for use by anyone new to carbon saving (especially in smaller businesses) and recognises that not everyone has the time or resources to undertake a full carbon management programme. This guide can be used on its own or as an introduction to the many sector and technology specific publications in the Carbon Trust’s library.

The 2030 Palette is a free online platform that puts the principles and actions behind Zero Net Carbon and resilient built environments at the fingertips of designers, planners, and builders worldwide. The swatches, or sustainable design strategies, address energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission at all scales – from regional planning to building details. The platform gathers tools, best cases, guides and a wide database of materials characteristics for sustainable and efficient buildings.

The EU-funded, Horizon 2020 project STUNNING, which promotes knowledge exchange and interaction in the field of energy-efficient building renovation, is conducting a survey on barriers for energy refurbishments to seek out answers and recommendations for the stagnant renovation rate in Europe. Based on the survey’s evaluation, STUNNING will provide insights on the processes that need to take place for the alleviation of the most common obstacles and market failures.

Modelling scenarios for development of the energy system is highly dependent on the assumptions. An essential input to any modelling exercise are assumptions about the development of technologies - both in terms of performance and costs. While these assumptions have been traditionally developed by the modelling consultants, based on a broad and rigorous literature review, the Commission is increasingly seeking a review of these technologies by stakeholders to make them even more robust and representative of the current projects as well as experts’ and stakeholders’ expectations.
