Building energy advisor capacity in Poland

DSCN2045Innovative strategies to reduce energy consumption, boost savings and decrease CO2 emissions is a top priority for the European Union but also for communities, cities and regions across all 28 Member States. The transition towards a secure, clean and efficient energy for Europe will only be possible if local and regional authorities actively engage in transforming policy recommendations into concrete action plans.

ManagEnergy capacity building workshops have precisely been designed to support local communities in their move towards sustainable modes of energy production and consumption. The latest took place on 25-26 February 2015 in Warsaw.

PRACSIS organised the event in close co-operation with the Polish National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOS). NFOS has supported the preparation of energy plans for almost 800 municipalities around the country. To help local authorities carry out these plans, NFOS is building a national energy advisory system staffed by advisors from Poland’s 16 regions. This ManagEnergy workshop aims to support these advisors in their work with a view to enhance sustainable energy actions around the country.
