EERAdata has been reaching out to other H2020 projects that have a focus on Energy Efficiency (EE) to benefit from their results, exchange knowledge, and explore synergies and opportunities for collaboration. Below are the main projects we have joined forces with.
Enefirst is a 3-year project funded under the Horizon2020 programme, which gathers a consortium of partners from across sectors and regions: IEECP, BPIE, Fraunhofer ISI, CEU, RAP, IREES, TU Wien.
From definition to implementation, Enefirst will help making the “Efficiency First” (E1st) principle more concrete and operational, better understand its relevance for energy demand and supply and its broader impacts across sectors and markets, focusing on the building sector. “Efficiency First” (E1st) is a fundamental principle applied to policymaking, planning and investment in the energy sector, gaining visibility in European energy and climate policy.
The project will provide a clear definition of E1st, understand its value for the energy system, develop policy proposals and test those in specific cases.
New societal trends are understood as societal developments arising from general megatrends, which can have potentially large impacts on energy consumption as well as cross-sectoral demand shifts. Those new societal trends are not simply the extrapolation of presently observed trends, but may take up speed when they are embraced by larger parts of the society. Such trends include the transition of consumers to ‘prosumagers’, moving towards a circular economy and a low-carbon industry, digitalisation of the economy and of private lives, and trends towards a shared economy.
The goal of the EU-funded newTRENDs project is to identify and quantify how these new societal trends may affect energy demand. To achieve its goal, it will combine qualitative and quantitative cross-sectoral modelling and explore how energy demand models can be improved to represent new societal trends.
As a response to the European Commission’s 2050 decarbonization goals, sEEnergies considers all aspects of the Energy Efficiency (EE) First Principle.
The overall aim of sEEnergies is to quantify and operationalise the potentials for energy efficiency (EE) in buildings, transport and industry, combining this bottom-up knowledge with temporal and spatial analyses to develop an innovative, holistic and research-based EE-modelling approach going beyond current state-of-the-art science-based knowledge and methodologies.
SPEEDIER is a highly innovative one-stop-shop solution that applies an integrated approach to energy management, providing information, advice, capacity building, energy auditing, financing, implementation of energy efficiency solutions and monitoring of impacts.
SPEEDIER delivers a self-financing outsourced energy management service with much benefit to SMEs, enabling them to implement energy conservation measures and also obtain access to the energy services market. The service will be available via energy consultants, auditors and experts and will facilitate the uptake of energy audits, and the subsequent implementation of energy efficiency measures in SMEs.
Energy System Models (ESMs) are tools that help energy experts and policy makers to rationally describe energy systems and systematically evaluate the impacts of long-term energy scenarios. Current ESMs lack accuracy required for proper capture of the use of energy in households.
WHY Project develops a new Causal Model combined with an innovative profiling approach to analyse human decision making in energy consumption and human reactions to energy policy changes. WHY will therefore create innovative methodologies for short- and long-term load forecasting. The WHY toolkit will be used to assess several scenarios simulating different policy measures. All results will be open sourced to maximize uptake and be widely disseminated to diverse target audiences.
