The eCentral project is proposed in the context of the EU territorial cohesion policy with the vision to strengthen EU regions in their capacities to conduct projects that increase energy performance of public buildings.
This project aims to provide a dynamic basis for spatial heat planning in Styria, Salzburg and Vienna by creating a "heat atlas". Together, the three federal states, their capitals and a large number of pioneer communities and research partners are working on the shared vision.
The ENTRAIN project aims at improving the capacities of public authorities to develop and implement local strategies and action plans for enhancing the use of endogenous renewable energy sources in small district heating networks.
The Styrian Government and the Energie Steiermark AG jointly tender the “Energy Globe STYRIA AWARD” and thus award the best Styrian eco-innovations in the fields of energy and environment. According to the European Commission, "eco-innovation is any form of innovation causing or intending significant and demonstrable progress towards the goal of sustainable development by reducing environmental impact, enhancing resilience to environmental pressures or effecting a more efficient and responsible use of natural resources." The Energie Agentur Steiermark is pleased to act as organizer of the event since 2003.
Ziele des Ich tu‘s Energy Lunch sind der Wissensaustausch und der Transfer innovativer Projektergebnisse aus angewandter Forschung und Entwicklung im Bereich Öko-Energie und Klimaschutz. Aktuelle Themen werden kompakt aufbereitet, neue Angebote aufgezeigt und an AnwenderInnen vermittelt.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) provide valuable information to (prospective) building owners, tenants and investors on the energy performance of buildings and potential ways to improve it. However, current practices and tools of energy performance assessment and certification applied across Europe face several challenges and there is still (hidden) potential for improvement.
