3rd C-Track 50 roundtable with national stakeholders, March 19, 2019 - Tuesday, March 26, 2019

 The 3rd C-Track 50 roundtable with national Greek entities was realised in National Technical University of Athens, on March 19. Representatives of the Ministry of Environment and Energy, the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks, the Region of Epirus, the Region of Thessaly, the Center for Renewable Sources and Energy Saving, the Technical Chamber of Greece, the Sustainable City Network, as well as representatives of the National Technical University of Athens and EPTA (as C-Track 50 partners) participated in the meeting.

The aim of the meeting was the presentation and discussion of C-Track 50 proposals submitted to the public consultation of the National Action Plan for Energy and Climate. Emphasis was also placed on ways in which multi-level governance can be strengthened, i.e. cooperation between local, regional and national authorities in the context of long-term energy planning.
A proposal that received a positive response from the two regions participating in the meeting, was the link between financing mechanisms and individual emission reduction targets that can be set at the level of each region, according to its characteristics and potential.
The representatives of the two regions informed the participants about the energy efficiency projects in their territory and presented the barriers they are faced during their implementation, especially when there is need to cooperate with the local authorities.
The meeting was concluded with proposals including national measures and policies that could support the ambitious European long-term goals towards decarbonisation.
 

1st C-Track 50 Workshop with Local Stakeholders, November 15, 2018 - Sunday, November 18, 2018

On November 15th, the first regional/local roundtable was organised with invited representatives from numerous municipalities. These were municipalities who had expressed interest in receiving support from C-Track 50 for their 2050 energy planning and for the preparation of funding proposals for selected energy projects. The purpose of this meeting was to present the services to be offered within the project and to set work schedules. At the same time, there was a first brainstorming on the current situation and the municipalities’ needs for technical support due to their different characteristics and experience. Lastly, emphasis was placed on identifying their long-term priorities, through exchange of ideas.

Through invited speakers in the fields of energy communities, public financing schemes, energy performance contracts etc., the attendees also learnt about energy saving projects as well as financial tools that can be used in these projects, but also in the municipalities’ sustainable development. 

 

2nd C-Track 50 roundtable with National Stakeholders, October 22, 2018 - Thursday, October 25, 2018

The 2nd C-Track 50 roundtable with national Greek entities was realised in the premises of the National Technical University of Athens, on the 22nd of October. Representatives of the Ministry of Energy, the Region of Epirus, the Region of Thessaly, the Center for Renewable Sources and Energy Saving, the Technical Chamber of Greece, the Sustainable City Network, as well as representatives of the National Technical University of Athens and EPTA (as C-Track 50 partners) participated in the meeting.

The discussion focused on the long-term energy planning in Greece, as reflected in the European carbon neutrality objective for 2050 (80-85% emissions’ reduction), as well as on some preliminary proposals to further strengthen it. At the same time, the conversation turned to whether some of these proposals could be incorporated into the 2030 plan, which is expected to be published within the next two weeks.
Subsequently, emphasis was given on how regions and local authorities could support the process and the energy planning objectives through multilevel governance as well as through individual targets for emissions’ reduction.
In this framework, C-Track 50 committed to mature the proposals, which will also be sent to the meeting’s participants, in order to be submitted in the open consultation to be held for the national energy plan, expected in November.
