Midterm Conference

6.6. - 7.6.2019, Prague

ALLIES? Strange word… Not if you understand that everybody can become an ally in implementing energy efficiency and economically benefit from energy savings in industry and public premises.

How should that be possible? Join us for the ALLIES project conference in Prague to learn about the means and measures to implement Local Financing Entities for Energy Efficiency (LFEEE). And about the support you can get to implement such LFEEEs in your country, region or city.

In general, customer and consumer integration is high on the agenda of European energy policy. Millions of people implement energy self-consumption and can invest into renewable energy generation plants. However, there are only a few cases where ordinary people can invest and economically benefit from energy efficiency and savings in enterprise and public buildings.

Exploiting experience with energy efficiency cooperatives in Germany, project partners from Hungary and Poland are implementing their yet specific types of LFEEEs in the ALLIES project. They want to share their experience and are happy to learn from other projects. The conference will be a lively place with lots of interaction, discussion and networking for international academic and practical experts.
