New approaches to the use of energy for local authorities and low-income households will be presented at the opening of the SCORE project conference in Turn.
Research and pilot projects in the field of community renewable energy in the Czech Republic, Italy and Germany will be presented at an international conference in Turn on Wednesday 17 and Thursday, November 18, 2021. The European research project SCORE has developed how heat can be achieved in the city their production, which would contribute to you climate protection. The capital city of Prague, led by the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt am Main, is involved in the project.
Experts in the field of science, industry, local authorities and politics will present and discuss various models of participation in communities at the International Conference in Turn (Italy) on November 17 and 18, 2021. Pilot projects of the capital city of Prague, the Piedmont mine Susa (Piedmont / Italy) and Essen (Por / Germany) will be presented here as treasures of ecological een in this area. Similar projects are currently taking place in a number of other European cities and regions.
In the area of sustainable energy and buildings, Prague is aiming, among other things, to reduce heat and gas consumption by 15% and to reduce CO2 emissions from electricity and heat supplies by 60%. The preference is to produce energy from renewable sources on the city land. And 23,000 buildings will therefore be equipped with solar and cogeneration sources of electricity. The means to do so will be the recent establishment of the Renewable Energy Community.
Our goal is, in accordance with the Climate Fulfillment, to involve Praguers, public and private companies, research institutes, universities and civic associations in a joint force in the field of climate, to Petr Hlubuek, mayor of the capital. m of Prague for the environment.
Today, less than 15 percent of people in Europe are involved in energy transformation. Accelerating energy transformation and the deployment of local climate protection require rapid change. The results of our research and documents from Prague, Essen and the Susa mine show what you are doing and how to do it, describes Jens Lowitzsch from the European University of Viadrina.
The online conference attendance on November 17 and 18 is free. Program and registration at www.score-h2020.eu.
The revised EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) facilitates these energy projects. EU member states are preparing to introduce directives into local legislation. Among other things, the directive defines the rights and obligations of community energy communities. The directive supports the self-employed and low-income households in renewable energy.
