Energy efficiency for energy transition – Constanța
14 Sep 2023 @ 10:00 - 15 Sep 2023 @ 13:00
On Thursday and Friday, 14-15 september, we invite you in Constanța to the 3rd conference of the “Energy Efficiency for Energy Transition” campaign that Energynomics is running together with the Romanian Energy Efficiency Fund – FREE and the Directorate for Energy Efficiency of the Ministry of Energy. The project is funded by Norwegian Grants 2014-2021. We are thus continuing, for the 7th year, our efforts to raise awareness of issues relevant to digitalization and increasing energy efficiency in Romania, bringing together representatives of local authorities with experts and companies ready to contribute to the development of the cities of the future.

Trainer: Adrian Ghiță, Executive Director, Romanian Fund for Energy Efficiency – FREE
The course presents the main funding mechanisms available at the national level for projects proposing energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions. It will present the factors that influence project indicators and their relevance in increasing the chances of accessing several sources of funding in parallel, either separately or through the integration of a complex financing scheme.
09:00 – 09:30 Registration
09:30-11:00 Workshop Energy efficiency and energy transition for the local administration sector
Trainer: Dr. Corneliu Rotaru, senior expert in energy efficiency
The course presents the basic concepts and guidelines of national and European policy in the field of energy transition and aims to increase the capacity of local authorities for the necessary actions and use of technologies for increasing energy efficiency and for the energy management of localities. It will address topics such as databases and digitalization, new cooperation mechanisms between TAUs and energy communities to reduce the costs of investment preparation, and contracting of energy services, as well as new approaches to identify energy efficiency solutions (e.g. decentralized generation, smart metering, cost allocators).
11:00 – 11:30 Coffee break
11:30-13:00 Workshop Energy efficiency from opportunity to reality
Trainer: Dr. Andrei Ceclan, professor, senior energy consultant
The course aims to present case studies of opportunities and realized energy efficiency projects in industry and at the local level, focusing on key outcome indicators, including measured and verified impacts, financial and human resources committed, barriers and overcoming them, and lessons learned.
