Transcript

  • 1. European Energy Award: Qualification, certification and awarding of communal energy policy Helmut Strasser SIR – Salzburg Institute for regional planning and housing 14. 06. 2007
  • 2. Introduction
    • state of Salzburg 500.000 inhabitants
    • 119 communities from 400 up to 19.000 inhabitants + city of Salzburg with about 150.000 inhabitants
    • Tourism plays an important role:
    • Summer and Winter in alpine regions, Culture – Mozart
    • Intact environment is relevant for economy - climate changes will cause changes for alpine tourism!!!
    1900 2000 City of Salzburg
  • 3. Background: Climate Protection
    • Kyoto-Target for Austria minus 13 % of the greenhouse gases from 1990 for the period from 2008 to 2012
    • Salzburg: guidelines for energy use – Toronto target
    % +20 +6 0 -28
  • 4. Target group: Communities
    • What can be done whithin shrinking budgets for communities?
    • How can politicans be inspired by energysaving measures?
    • How can sustainable and permanent projects be realised?
    • How can we have a positive contribution to our (living) environment ?
  • 5. A little story about an energy conscious community…
    • She has no idea ,
    • how effective her measures are,
    • what other measures she would need to achieve the climate targets,
    • what other measures are possible,
    • where community is standing on the way to accomplish their targets, neither has she an action plan
    • how other cities are doing and what they are doing
  • 6. … but the mayor is clever!
    • The city needs…
    • a programme and a process instead of single projects
    • a system to prioritize fields of actions for the city’s planning process
    • systematic evaluation of the own activities and a benchmarking system to compare with others
    • a network for exchange of experience and know-how
  • 7. What is the European Energy Award?
    • The European Energy Award® (eea®) is a certification and quality management system for towns and cities across Europe that are making a significant contribution to improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energies.
  • 8. Main elements of eea
    • The European Energy Award® consists of two main elements:
    • A quality management system for communal energy-related services and activities
    • Certification and award for energy-related achievements and control of success through regular audits
  • 9. Step-by-step towards the targets Today Target
    • eea means…
    • a continuous process (quality management system)
    • setting up and improving local structures and frameworks for effective energy policies
    • a certification, benchmark and labelling system
    • a network within the community and between communities
    measures time Today Target
  • 10. Continuous process of eea
    • Step-by-step communities improve their performance in their energy-related activities:
    • Energy-related activities are reviewed
    • Strengths, weaknesses and potentials for improvement are visualized
    • Goals for the local energy policy and decision-making criteria are defined
    • An energy policy work programme is developed comprising concrete long-term and short-term projects
    • The work programme is implemented step-by-step
    • A continuous assessment of the results is carried out
  • 11. Energy-political Profile
    • Basis: Catalogue of Measures (84 measures in 6 fields of actions)
    •  percentage of realisation in each field of action
    • Visualisation of - strengths & - weaknesses
    • audit result:
    • level of realisation: 58 %
    • Certification:
  • 12. Energy Team
    • The ‘Energy Team’ works with an accredited eea® advisor to:
      • Carry out the energy review with the support of the assessment tool
      • Develop an energy policy work programme
      • Develop and realise energy efficiency projects
      • Prepare documentation for the certification process
    administrative staff energy-team Committed private persons Experts of municipality Member of environmental organisations politicians external experts
  • 13. Regional e5- structure
    • 4 times / year
    • coordination of common e5
    • activities
    • exchange of experiences
    • discussion of project-ideas
    Organized networking meetings Comm. X Comm. B Comm. C Comm. D Moderation benefit Comm. A
  • 14. e5- Catalogue of measures: the Heart of e5
    • 4 functions:
    • Checklist for the energy reviews
      • what has been done?
      • quality of transformation?
      • documentation of each project
    • Catalyst for the process
    • Aid for planning future activities
    • Measurement tool for benchmarks, external audits and certification
    Structure of the catalogue: 6 fields of actions, 84 measures, from 1-10 points for each measure - depending on the CO2-relevance, total 500 points of benchmarking (Spatial) planning communal buildings & facilities supply & disposal communication & cooperation internal organisation energy mobility
  • 15. Quality Assurance and Awarding
    • Depending on the degree of implementation of possible measures, a community can get certified and awarded with the European Energy Award®.
    If 75% of the possible measures are implemented and finalized, the community receives: If 50% of the possible measures are implemented and finalized, the community receives:
  • 16. Benefits for communities
    • Systematic review of energy activities in the community
    • Continuous increases in energy efficiency and associated cost savings
    • Continuous assessment of success through a comprehensive monitoring system
    • Highlighting the community’s achievements in the field of energy
    • Benchmarking with other towns and cities participating in the eea® programme on a national and European level
    • Access to the know-how and experience of leading energy cities and towns throughout Europe
    • Significant contribution to common climate protection and sustainability efforts by implementing energy policy for the future
    • Successful dissemination of the “energy-activities” amongst eea® participating towns and cities across Europe
