The Cross-sectoral Policy Recommendations and the Policy Recommendations regarding Historic Building Blocks are core outputs of GovernEE. They set out a series of requirements regarding the appropriate administrative, legal and financial frameworks enabling an effective decision-making and planning processes on energy efficiency (EE) and the use of renewable energy sources (RES) for public heating systems.
The cross-sectoral Recommendations present an efficient joint proposal to address a common European challenge and aim to assist policy- and decision makers in taking operational measures to support effective planning. The key questions are how EE in heating could be improved in historic buildings and what measures should be taken to bridge legislative gaps in this domain. This latter, i.e. overcoming legal bottlenecks, is a highly crucial issue to be addressed when dealing with energy related decisions.
Proposals are formulated on all relevant policy levels, European, national and local, of the public sector as a main energy consumer. The operation of Public Administrations (PA) often involves a building stock with historic dwellings and thus with inefficient heating systems. For them, initiatives in the field of EE and RES are of primary importance. Also, policy-makers in the public sector, in municipal institutions in particular, have a pivotal role in highlighting energy matters in relation to sustainable urban development and in setting good examples. In this respect, GovernEE paves the way for the improvement of the decision-making process and competence-planning, as well as the awareness-raising and commitment of policy-makers on all levels. These are important aspects of good governance, which is the overarching goal of GovernEE.

A few months before the project’s closure and final conference, GovernEE project partners ultimate gathering in the Austrian Capital, Vienna, is dedicated to overview the strategic advancements made by the project, finding the best practices and tools for greening energy management of Central European-based public building stock. Partners present and discuss some of the final project outputs, such as the Transnational Feasibility Study and the Strategic Toolkit, preparing the terrain to the final event to be held in June 2013 in the Hungarian city of Hódmezővásárhely.
Vienna, 19th March 2013 – As a key point on its two-day long 6th Partner Working Group meeting and 5th Transnational Workshop agenda, the Transnational Feasibility Study to be presented by the Italian knowledge partner institute CETA (Bologna) on the possibilities of Energy Efficiency (EE) and the efficient exploitation of renewable energy sources (RES) in the heating system of public historic buildings, investigates into technological, financial, environmental, institutional aspects and solutions.
