Overview

    

The TRACE project supports public authorities in South East Europe at all administrative levels (national, regional, local) to implement the EU 2020 energy strategy, by facilitating the exchange of knowledge, ideas and policies for reducing the buildings energy demands. That way, buildings will become more energy efficient, contributing to the welfare of EU citizens.

Buildings consume almost half of the total energy EU uses to cover its needs (approximately 40% of the total energy consumption and CO2 emissions). According to the EU 2020 energy strategy, buildings need to get 20% more energy efficient by 2020. For that reason, the European Union has revised its legislation towards that direction, issuing the EPBD recast (Directive 2010/31/EU) on 19 May 2010 (http://www.eceee.org/buildings/EPBD_Recast).

National, regional and local public authorities are required to put in a lot of effort in order to implement the recast EPBD and at the same time develop policies and mechanisms to make buildings more efficient. TRACE facilitates the transfer of know – how, the exchange of experiences and good practices between administrations and other interested stakeholders and establishes a transnational partnership that will ensure the effective implementation of joint actions.

TRACE project main objectives:

  • Collect and analyse good practices concerning energy efficiency in buildings
  • Share and develop Knowledge resources
  • Exchange of good practices
  • Capacity building of territorial administrations executives
  • Develop policy recommendations
  • Set up structures, that identify and initiate energy efficiency investments
  • Raise awareness among the citizens and key stakeholders
