Implementation of Energy Strategies in Communities EBC Project Annex 63 for the International Energy Agency

The outcomes from previously completed projects on energy optimization at a community scale showed that the transformation of approaches suitable for buildings to communities needs more than simply an up-scaling of individual building solutions. This newly approved project will therefore focus on development of standards for implementation of optimized energy strategies at the scale of communities.
The target audiences will primarily be government and urban decision makers and urban planning departments

Ciudad Energética – Sustainable energy future in Chile

The Energy City programme is a successful story not only in Switzerland. At the European level, the system is already widespread under the name of European Energy Award. The «Ciudad Energética – Sustainable energy future in Chile» project supported by the interdepartmental development platform REPIC and implemented within the framework of co-operation between the companies Nova Energie, ENCO Energie-Consulting AG und Ernst Basler + Partner is now for the first time testing the applicability of the system in South America. In doing so, ENCO brings more than 25 years of Swiss experience in «Energy City» and comprehensive knowledge of the adaptation of the methodology to the circumstances in other countries. The project will be running for more than 2 years and is supported by the Swiss embassy in Chile as well as several Chilean ministries and the two Chilean associations of local authorities.

Co-operation in the Project „Low Carbon City China“

The Chinese cities are growing very quickly, and in some instances, excessively. This contributes to increased income, true, but is the cause of the 70-80 % CO2 emissions in the cities there. The LCCC-Programme offers a platform for the exchange of knowledge and information for the promotion of the low CO2 city based on the European Energy Award approach.
