- Erika Honnay from GRE-Liege will present RenoWatt, a one-stop-shop in Belgium which provides assistance to the participating authorities in the energy renovation of their buildings: identification of energy-consuming buildings, project profitability analysis, financing of the investment program and management of the entire public procurement procedure.
- Rob McKinnon will present the Re:Fit project which has set up a framework contract to simplify public procurement of energy performance contracts in the UK to support public sector to implement energy efficiency and local energy generation measures.
- Céline Tougeron from the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) will present the funding opportunities available under the EU programme Horizon 2020 to work on the renovation of public buildings, in particular Project Development Assistance and Innovative Financing schemes.
