The PLEEC project is finished - a final summary report is currently in review and will be published soon. Our homepage including all resources will be kept online for a while and occasionally also some relevant news will be posted here.
This time we would like to highlight a new service offered to finished FP7/H2020 projects in the field of energy, similar as PLEEC. The ”Support Service for Research Projects in Energy” (SSERR) is targeted towards the exploitation of project results and is free of charge. Activities which can be financed include e.g. Project Risk Analysis, Exploitation Strategy Seminars, Business Plan Development, Assistance for Patenting and Brokerage Events.
The special issue "Planning for Resource Efficient Cities" of the Journal of Settlements and Spatial Planning (no. 5/2016) contains several PLEEC-based scientific articles. The open access journal is published by the Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca. The special issue edited by PLEEC partners and is available online.
We are proud of our results achieved and the great cooperation among the project consortium. Hereby we would like to thank everybody who has participated in any manner in our work during the last three years!
Download here the PLEEC project factsheet with the final results.
The PLEEC model is a guide for city planners in European cities to develop their Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) in order to meet the EU 20-20-20 goals. The guide consists of the PLEEC partners´ joint experiences from developing six EEAPs. By taking part of the model content, through literature studies, checklists, movies and city partners' advice, the reader gets a strong base to initiate the Action Plan. One of the lessons from PLEEC is that understanding local conditions in different cities is key to developing an EEAP that can be successfully implemented. No action can be copied from one city to another but by sharing experiences we can come a long way towards a more energy efficient future. The PLEEC model is one of the core outputs of the PLEEC project.
Through the run of the PLEEC project all six PLEEC partner cities have been working in joint and intense efforts on developing and writing an Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) for their city – a plan which will guide them their way to become energy smart.
The EEAP´s are the results of three years project work and base upon the findings of the smart city analyses (“Smart City Profiles”) in WP2 and the best matching energy efficiency recommendations from WP3, 4, and 5 taking the cities´ technological, structural and behavioral capabilities into account.
Get the EEAP´s here and get inspired for your own city´s journey towards an energy efficient future!
