Regional Policies for energy self-consumption in buildings, ENERSELVES project

Policy Instruments for Energy Self-Consumption in Buildings

The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) requires all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy buildings (NZEB) by the end of 2020 (end of 2018 for new public buildings). Even so, the integration of RES for self-consumption into NZEB remains a challenge for 1/3 of Member States, which have not included it in their National Directives.

Moreover, RES for self-consumption in buildings is not considered as cost-optimal energy in every country. Regional authorities have a key role to play in identifying their cost-optimal RES to create new policies to support the integration of RES in buildings.

As not every RES self-consumption is cost-effective for every region, we need an in depth analysis to identify the best value-for-money investment.

In this event, regional politicians and key regional actors from Spain, Italy, Sweden, Poland and Romania will discuss the best tools for implementation of RES for self-consumption.
