A rapidly growing world population and increasing energy consumption are leading to a continuous rise of greenhouse gas emissions. Resulting climate change and extreme weather events represent one of the greatest challenges in Europe. RURES
sets to exploit the potential of renewable energies (RES) and energy efficiency (EE) in rural regions as they have a great potential for reaching energy autonomy. Within RURES local support group composed of all relevant actors will be established acting as a regional energy network for implementing energy efficiency plans.
Best-practices of alternative financing models for EE/RES measures will be researched and become the basis for new feasibility studies on how to implement energy efficiency plans. The calculator tool (for municipal taxes and other incomes) will highlight the importance of a community-oriented regional development and further underline the benefits and added value generated by exploiting EE/RES.
5th partner meeting of the RURES project – „Promote the sustainable use of renewable resources and energy efficiency in rural regions” was held in Čakovec, Croatia, on 11-12 November 2019. The event was jointly organized by Public Institution for the Development of the Međimurje County REDEA and Medjimurje Energy Agency ltd in frame of the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE programme.
Zala County Government held an LSG meeting on 10 December 2019 in Zalaegerszeg.
The participants had discussions about the topics of energy efficiency following the welcome speech of Imre Pácsonyi, vice-president of the general assembly.
Development agency Sinergija and Local Energy Agency Pomurje has organized 8th Local support group meeting for Pomurje region that has taken place at Motel Čarda.
City of Leisnig (GEr)
A ventilation system with heat
recovery is installed at a public
sports centre which is frequently
used for sport activities by regional
schools. It will reduce the energy
demand for the heating of the
building and quality of the air.
It is foreseen to install a PV-plant
shaped in the form of a tree at a
public place in Puconi, it will be
equipped with PV-panels for current prodution which can be used for
charging Smartphones, bycicles and other e-mobile devises for the exploitation of renewable energy system (RES).
It is foreseen to establish an
energy-yard (energy competence centre) at an public building formally used as public school. There various small scale RES power plants are
eastablished to demonstrate new
technologies and to ensure the trust in novel RES solutions and there importance for creating a sustainable energy market.
It is foreseen to establish new solutions for increased energy
efficiency and RES at an frequntly
visited administratvive building which afterwards will act as demonstration building. It allows to pratically see how the solutions can be integrated to public building stock and further office buildings.
Project partnership consist of eleven institutions from six Central Europe regions.
