Sustainable Energy Week

13 Jun 2016 to 17 Jun 2016

European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is a month-long series of activities to build a secure energy future for Europe. It brings together public authorities, private companies, NGOs and consumers to promote initiatives to save energy and move towards renewables for clean, secure and efficient power.

Everyone brings something different to the EUSEW. It is an ideal platform for sharing ideas and knowhow, and for forging alliances to bring about an Energy Union based on:

Coordination mechanisms - Belgium

In Belgium, coherence related to energy efficiency policy-making is assured through the working group CONCERE/ENOVER (Consultation between the Federal State and the Regions on energy matters) within the Interministerial Conference for Economy and Energy, which allows consultation between the Federal State and the Regions on energy matters. This multi-level-governance institution allows them to share energy competences and supports them in finding common positions and producing unified reports.

Monitoring and Verification (M&V) schemes - Belgium

As each of the three Belgian regions developed/develops its own Energy Efficiency Action Plan, each region has also set up its own M&V scheme. The monitoring approach mainly applied in the Walloon Region and Flemish region is a bottom-up approach. The EU recommended bottom-up formulae are used by these regions most of the time for quantifying the energy savings of implemented energy efficiency measures; only when the data at hand does not fit the recommended bottom-up formulae, alternative formulae are applied, developed by the monitoring bodies in the regions itself.
