The major challenge for public administrations is to reduce energy consumption in existing public buildings without significant construction works. Public administrations, however, lack reliable solutions and applicable integrated approaches to reduce this energy consumption. TARGET-CE will collect, adjust and deploy new ICT tools, financial models, action plans and trainings to the local and regional administrations and integrate them into territorial and thematic strategies. The project aims to become an energy efficiency flagship in central European region, offering the solutions for public buildings on a unique web platform.

TARGET-CE will capitalize innovative technical & non-technical solutions combining downstreaming and upstreaming activities for increasing EE and renewable energy usage in public buildings
TARGET-CE aims to become an energy efficiency (EE) flagship in central European region, offering the solutions for public buildings on a unique web platform.
TARGET-CE will capitalize the outcomes of 5 previously funded Interreg-CE projects, 2 H2020 and 1 Interreg-Europe project, trying to answer EE territorial challenges in 7 newly engaged Pilot Actions (1 cross-border), located in 6 countries.
Offered outcomes will be all accessible within the BOOSTEE-CE OnePlace platform (http://oneplace.fbk.eu) which will become the hub for many solutions.
On Tuesday 7.12.2021 was a fun day at Primary school Nazarje (SI).
Within the TARGET project projectpartner KSSENA have organized several interactive workshops in order to promote the Energy@school app and to raise awareness on energy efficient use in school. They closed with an internal competition a very fruitful day, full of knowledge and new experinces.
Project partner Europejskie Ugrupowanie Współpracy Terytorialnej NOVUM z o.o. organized a Focus group meeting on 3rd December 2021.
During the meeting, the capitalized tools from previous Interreg CE and H2020 projects were introduced. In the meeting the representatives of Polish and Czech municipalities took part.
All Partner present their progress of the capitalization work of 5 previously funded Interreg-CE projects, 2 H2020 and 1 Interreg-Europe project. On the second day a thematic workshop "train the trainer" with 3 topics was held. In addition to the 3D EMS tool (BOOSTEE-CE), the partners also presented the tools from eCentral, Energy@School and CitiEnGov.
Our thematic workshop (“train-the-trainers”) on energy efficiency (EE) in public buildings will be held on 23.11.2021 in Lugo di Ravenna (Italy), with 3 topics: OnePlace web-platform and its modules, regulations, legislations and financial sources for EE and energy performance contracts.
The aim was to explain the general idea behind the TARGET-CE project, which is the capitalization of 8 past project solutions in specific pilot areas. That is why the ongoing activities in pilot area Municipality Nazarje was represented in detail. After the presentations an open discussions has taken place, regarding the possibilities of implementation of EE and RES solutions in different areas.
On 13th of September PP SIPRO involved different representatives of the Municipality and the Province of Ferrara in order to describe the state of art of the TARGET-CE pilots activities in Ferrara and to discuss on energy efficiency related issues and future activities for the capitalization of the Target-CE results in the next programming period
Aim was the presentation of TARGET-CE project activities, first results and next steps in project activities, the possibilities for the energy refurbishment and adaption of the Pilot building.

The BOOSTEE-CE project aimed to improve the governance of energy efficiency in existing public buildings and, ultimately, to reduce energy consumption. It intended to tackle these territorial challenges offering innovative solutions and best practices to undertake actions for improving energy performance of buildings and accelerate the transition to low-carbon cities.
Capitalized TARGET-CE solutions will support the public sector challenges in playing an exemplary role in undertaking EE actions and upgrade their infrastructures.
PANEL 2050 is a project financed from Horizon2020 Programme. Its main output was to create sustainable energy network at local level, where stakeholders collaborate for the creation of energy strategies for the transition towards low carbon communities in 2050.
Panel 2050 multi-stage strategy for implementing solutions, will be used to prepare 9 action plans for public utilities. Those solutions will support the smooth conduct of pilot actions in all regions of TARGET-CE project.
EMPOWER is a project financed from Interreg Europe programme, which main output is improving governance to mobilize new projects that apply energy monitoring with usage of innovative financing mechanisms and new technology.
EMPOWER Good Practice Register is a database on good examples of projects related to energy monitoring and innovative financial instrument, which will help improve the action plans carried out in TARGET.
ENERGY@SCHOOL project worked on increasing the capacity of public sector to implement Energy Smart Schools. This was done by an integrated approach which brought together education of schools staff and pupils. They became Junior and Senior Energy Guardians. In their new roles they learnt more about energy efficient measures, gained more responsibilities and experienced the implementation of technical energy efficient solutions, facing the shift towards low carbon Europe every day.
The eCentral project offered support to key stakeholders to realize the benefits of the standard for the renovation and construction of public near-zero-energy buildings. The main results of the project were targeted at regional and local public authorities that do not have sufficient technical and financial knowledge to develop complex energy efficiency projects. The experiences will be upgraded and continued in the TARGET project, which will collect, adapt and use new ICT tools, financial models, action plans and trainings.
The project aims to provide local authorities with new solutions, both technical and financial, which will help them to implement ‘nearly Zero Energy Building’ (nZEB) renovation activities in schools. The innovative approach consists in developing a transnational and holistic support toolkit and a web database of innovative best practices for nZEB renovation. Activities: Development of energy reviews of representative school facilities, Preparation of preliminary plans for renovation of representative school facilities, emissions after renovation, ...
The CitiEnGov project has contributed to improve the capacities of Central Europe Public Authorities, especially Municipalities, in dealing with energy planning and strategies. Moreover it has promoted an innovative approach for organizing and managing the energy topic within local administrations, which is based on a integrated and horizontal structure, easing the public administrations’ processes. The results will be deepened during the TARGET-CE project. Also the CitiEnGov wiki-toolkit will be integrated and enhanced with OnePlace platform.
The GreenSoul project aimed to surpass the energy saving targets of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive (-20% by 2020) with a cost-effective and energy-efficient ICT platform. This ICT platform is equipped with a number of tools and a socio-economic and behavioural model that will jointly guide the energy consumption practices of public buildings.
The main outcome of TARGET-CE is the Oneplace platform , a unique hub related to Energy Efficiency which collects capitalised and adjusted solutions coming from past Interreg-CE and other international projects. The OnePlace online energy platform collects Energy Efficiency material (best practices, databases of experts and material, strategies and action plans, tools, educational material, financial road maps and 3D cities) to support public authorities, citizens and energy planners in proper energy management and energy savings in public buildings.
THEMATIC WORK PACKAGE 1
Thematic WP1 aims to analyse and map stakeholders needs in the new pilot regions, engage them into TARGET-CE activities and analyse transferability needs for the selected technical and not-technical outputs coming from past international projects related to EE. Stakeholder mapping and engagement is a mandatory activity in order to understand needs of new involved regions and better capitalized and deploy EE solutions.
