This year marks the 15thEuropean Sustainable Energy Week EUSEW.  Under the circumstances with Covid-19 the event was adapted to provide a dynamic, interactive and carefully organised online format. This effort has proved successful with more than 6300 registered participants and 4600 active online participants and some sessions of the policy conference gathering over 1500 registrations from people around the world.

Abstract: Often there is a significant difference between the actually measured and theoretically calculated energy use. The deviation between the two can be a result of errors in design, construction or commissioning, due to the technical performance of building components and installations that don’t meet the design requirements. But equally, incorrect assumptions in the calculation can largely affect the results, for example the user influence that is simulated in a different way.

Although local power generation by renewable sources is increasing, it has not yet had a real impact on radical decarbonisation of the energy sector, Changes need to be made by unlocking the potential of the prosumer. This project proposes a community-based Virtual Power Plant (cVPP), a novel model that can help organise & significantly boost renewable energy production & distribution at a local level.   Taking the VPP a step further

All EU countries must establish a long-term renovation strategy to support the renovation of their national building stock into a highly energy efficient and decarbonised building stock by 2050.    The requirement for EU countries to adopt a long-term renovation strategy is set out in the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (2010/31/EU), which was revised in 2018 (2018/844/EU). These strategies will form part of EU countries’ integrated national energy and climate plans (NECPs).

Statistically, 40 percent of energy consumption and 36 percent of emissions come from buildings. For that reason energy efficiency has become one of the EU’s top priorities and led it to acknowledge that buildings are key to achieving its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80-95 percent by 2050.   What is a positive energy building?

Last year the main focus was on improving the energy performance of buildings. Reducing the use of fossil fuels and the direct and indirect CO₂ emission of buildings caused by heating, cooling and ventilating and at the same time improving or safeguarding the indoor environmental quality.

The declaration of a climate emergency means we must all look at how we can make big changes within our own communities. The current COP25 meeting in Madrid will highlight the society wide approaches which must be taken across the industrialised countries.
