The Executive Agency for SMEs (EASME) of the European Commission organized last 18th of October a professional meeting about web based and electronic tools.
The workshop “Electronic and web-based tools for energy efficiency” aimed to bring together all current IEE and Horizon 2020 projects on buildings and heating and cooling that make use of electronic and web-based tools, supplemented with related projects from other sectors and from FP7 and EeB.
More and more R&D Energy Efficiency projects use electronic and online tools in their project activities. Equally, increasing resources in terms of work and funding are spent on these tools. In many cases, the tools have become the key way of exploiting and presenting project outcomes, involving stakeholders and testing reactions to the project.
For this reason, EASME celebrated this meeting, which intended to exchange experiences, best practices, “dos” and “don’ts” and become an opportunity for peer learning through lessons learnt.
In this context, the EASME invited the project partner CIRCE to present the activities of TRIBE, and more specifically, all the details about the serious game that it is developing and the ICT solutions adopted to increase the energy efficiency of public buildings.
The event featured the special participation of Paul Hodson, Head of Unit Energy Efficiency, Directorate-General Energy of the European Commission, and Janna Schönfeld, Project Adviser of the Unit Energy, EASME. It also included a wide number of other projects funded in programs of the European Commission, as well as experts in this field from all across Europe.
