Transcript

  • 1. Rurener Tool Presentation www.rurener.eu [email_address] Supported by: RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality
  • 2. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Context Renewable energy sources and energy savings are a great asset, something to take advantage of and a solution to diminish climate change. To develop sustainable energy strategies is a main challenge for rural municipalities. Combining the use of renewable energy sources and the adoption of energy saving practices, local communities would profit from an unique opportunity for their development and competitiveness.
  • 3. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality The project Network of small RURal Communities for ENERgetic Neutrality (acronym RURENER ) is financed by IEE (Intelligent Energy Europe) programme on behalf of the European Commission. RURENER aims at improving the energetic neutrality of rural European communities and to establish a network among them.
    • RURENER Network brings together 2 types of members:
      • • Members of the
      • RURENER Consortium from:
      • France, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Greece
      • and Romania.
      • • Small European rural communities committed
      • to reach energetic-neutrality.
  • 4. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality
            • • Promote energetic-neutrality and innovative local development.
            • • Give support to small
            • rural communities to set up integrated energy policy,
            • by providing methodological and technical support and facilitating experience sharing and mutualisation of resources and tools.
            • • Stimulate energy efficiency actions in rural areas, through public and private investment for Renewable Energy Sources (RES), Rational
            • Use of Energy (RUE),
            • and use of local resources.
    Objectives
  • 5. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality
            • • Create tools and methods to achieve energetic neutrality: defining
            • an appropriate model to reach energetic neutrality, to be adapted
            • to each specific case thanks to a modular structure.
            • • Establish and maintain a network to enhance communities’ energetic performances: facilitating experience sharing based on on-line knowledge transfer practices; supporting twinning experiences among member communities and providing experts mentoring at European level to guide participating communities towards energetic neutrality.
            • • Concrete actions for participating communities: stimulate energy efficiency actions in rural areas, through public and private investment for renewable energy sources, rational use of energy, and use of local resources.
            • • Training and dissemination: assuring the sustainability and the capitalisation of project results through RURENER website and specific webtools, Practical Guidelines, Training in the field, European and local events and meetings.
    Activities
  • 6. Who can join Rurener Network? To become members of the NETWORK, villages and small towns must respect the definitions of the communities, targets of the RURENER project activities. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Rurener Network
  • 7. Who can join Rurener Network? Rural communities are defined as follows: “communities or joint communities in a rural area with around 350 inhabitants/km² or 15.000 inhabitants in total, who are willing to use energy in a most sustainable and efficient way”. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Rurener Network
  • 8. Why become members of the NETWORK ? The participation in the NETWORK, built through RURENER project, guarantees for local communities a strong support from PARTNERS to make progress toward energetic neutrality .

  • 9. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality
    • The main benefits for local communities are:
    • • Experience sharing and pooling of resources and tools;
    • • Access to all project information and online
    • tools developed by RURENER;
    • • Free participation to training in the field of renewable
    • energy sources and rational use of energy;
    • • Support and participation in/organization of national
    • and regional exhibition/conferences or seminars and local
    • energy days, organized in every country during the project lifetime;
  • 10. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality • Model for SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis of the community in terms of energy savings and implementation of renewable energy sources; • S upport for communication inside the community, to the citizens and outside of community to the important regional and national administrative personalities that can help the community development in the field of RES; • S upport to identify financing sources and to obtain financial support; • S upport for planning the expansion of existing RES and/ or transition to a new renewable energy source;
  • 11. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality • Help to design a more efficient use of energy; • P resentation of communities’ activities on the project website in English and in its national language and on the community weblog; • O pportunities to establish twinning, inside the RURENER NETWORK, with other communities from different countries.
  • 12. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Roadmap
  • 13. The only way to achieve an integrative energy policy at the local level is to lead an action plan. It allows to anticipate, coordinate, share short and long terms vision about how you can drive a comprehensive policy according to your means and external support. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Local Action Plan
  • 14.
    • Target group
    • Small local communities (direct target):
      • Through their representatives (mayors)
      • Through the inhabitants
    • Indirect target groups:
    • RES investors:
      • Regional and national organizations
      • Policy makers
    RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Communication and participation
  • 15. A local diagnosis is the original task when starting to reach energy neutrality! It allows to know where we are before planing where we want to go! You can call it a “point 0″ or a State of the Art, no matter the name, it is generally you first step! RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Communication and participation
  • 16. A model for SWOT analysis of the community in terms of energy savings, implementation of renewable energy sources and socio-economic situation is available for beneficiaries . SWOT analysis is a strategic planning method used to evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats involved in a project or in a business venture. It involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors That are favorable and unfavorable to achieving that objective. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Local Diagnosis

  • 21. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Swot Analysis
  • 22. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality The Questionnaire A Questionnaire will be submitted and the answers will be input to the SWOT analysis. The purpose of the Questionnaire is to initially assess not only the willingness but also the capabilities and progress so far (starting point) toward energetic neutrality at Local level.
  • 23. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Capacity Building
    • Searching for a
    • financial or a technical
    • partner , on the basis
    • of different criteria:
      • Financial
      • Technical
  • 24. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Evaluation Within RURENER the communities (network members) need to evaluate their starting point and progresses toward energetic-neutrality. For this purpose, RURENER created a measure grid for the network members.
  • 25. RURENER Network of small RURal communities for ENERgetic-neutrality Evaluation A basic technique of energy planning is to state of a given energy system in a certain time and energy balance is such a tool. Energy balance gives a simple and clear view of different energy carriers and different stages of conversion between the energy level and can be used for comparison reasons from year to year
