EXCITE project partner meeting

On 9 and 10 March, the EXCITE project partners are meeting in Velenje, Slovenia. The initiative is coordinated by CEE EnEffect and aims to transfer best practices in energy management, applying the time-tested methodology of the European Energy Award (eea), to Central and Eastern European countries. 

The aim of the meeting is to discuss the next steps for building a national eea methodology, adapted business models for local climate action and broad civic engagement campaigns. 

Among the activities foreseen under the project is the development of a dedicated online capacity building platform to offer blended learning, training and certification opportunities for municipal energy managers. A study trip to Austria will also be organized for the pilot municipalities, as well as participation in international peer-to-peer meetings and trainings.
