Mazovia Energy Agency together with Mazovia Voivodeship Government organized the 3rd edition of the Clean Air Congress on 26/02/2020 in Warsaw. MAE prepared a stand with PROSPECT2030 promotional materials, roll-up, presentations about project goals and activities. The agency promoted the project during the whole event and reached almost 50 stakeholders, and presented the concept for implementing investment support instruments in energy efficiency in Mazovia, such as PROSPECT2030 concept and goal on how to use public funds effectively.
- Piemonte | 05.03.20
On the 5th March 2020, Piemonte Region with the support of the Polytechnic of Turin, organized the webinar “Piemonte Energy: 2030 Vision”. The focus was on the challenges that the regional territory has to face in order to cope with the energy transition and the role that the PROSPECT2030 Project is being called upon to play in this context.
The audience success, more than 70 participants, shows how much this topic is nowadays relevant for regional stakeholders. Beside the presentation of PROSPECT2030 activities and goals, the presentation of Giulia Pizzini, from the European Commission's Executive Agency for Small and Medium Enterprises (EASME), has been a great opportunity for getting a useful insight about the European policy framework and the new initiatives for planning and financing the energy transition in the next years. In particular, the supporting role of EASME was highlighted.
Among others, the “EU City Facilities”, a new EU-funded financing tool which will provide financial support and services to cities and municipalities across the EU, was outlined. Moreover, the new Energy and Environmental Plan proposal of Piemonte Region was featured. The engagement of regional stakeholders is more and more proving its usefulness and, hopefully, it will continue with face-to-face initiatives very soon.

The second expert, Mr. Gábor Kiss, Senior Loan Officer at the European Investment Bank gave an overview on EIB’s funding opportunities for climate investments. The presentation title mirrored the main theme of the presentation: “Where will funding for green projects come from?”
The last presenter, Mr. Mihály Czabarka, Condominium Renovation Expert at Projectdoctor Ltd. targeted in his presentation the energy efficiency renovations in the condominium segment as municipalities and regions have a key role to play in the energy retrofit of condominiums. During the presentation two surveys were launched to the participants. The first targeted whose responsibility is the initiation of the condominium renovation and from the results the majority of the audience thought that the homeowners themselves should initiate it. The second question addressed to key barriers of condominium renovations the homeowners are facing.
