WHAT DOES IT MEAN AND WHY DO WE NEED AN ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN PUBLIC BUILDINGS?

#CoMEast:
What does it mean and why do we need an energy management system in public buildings?
It is a system for monitoring and optimising energy consumption, which will also help us to save financial resources and to be socially and environmentally responsible.

How can it be achieved and who should be involved?
It starts with an initial analysis of energy consumption and goes up to regular energy audits.

These are just some of the issues discussed during the two-day training dedicated to active signatories of the Covenant of Mayors who are in the process of developing, or are developing and implementing, a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SEACP).
They learned about the practical and legal aspects of implementing an energy management system, analysing actual energy consumption and identifying solutions that can generate savings and mitigate the financial impact on public institutions.

The practical aspects were presented based on the results of the UNDP/SGP/GEF project, through which an energy management system was piloted in 5 municipalities, signatories of the Covenant of Mayors, followed by the implementation of demonstration projects using renewable energy sources and identification of areas for improvement.

On the second day of training, the participants went for a valuable exchange of experience to Sireți, Strășeni district, an active signatory of the Covenant of Mayors.

The study visit provided a close look at advanced technologies already in use in Sireți: combined use RES-PV systems, solar collectors, wind turbines and innovations such as a bicycle with an electric generator.

Through these technological solutions, the EERA experts highlighted the importance of integrating sustainable energy in a broader context to help localities accelerate the implementation of their voluntary energy and climate targets.
The training took place with the support of the CoM-East III project, funded by European Union funds.
