European Alliance to Save Energy - Creating an energy efficient europe European Alliance to Save Energy Almere Almere (Dutch pronunciation: [ɑlˈmeːrə]) is a planned city and municipality in the province of Flevoland, the Netherlands, bordering Lelystad and Zeewolde. The municipality of Almere comprises the districts Almere Stad, Almere Buiten, Almere Oosterwold (design phase) and Almere Pampus (planned for future). and the boroughs of Almere Haven, Almere Hout and Almere Poort. Almere is the newest city in the Netherlands: the land on which Almere sits, the Southern Flevoland Polder, was reclaimed from the IJsselmeer in 1959-68. The first house was finished in 1976, and Almere became a municipality in 1984. It is the largest municipality in Flevoland with 196,290 citizens in 2014 and the 7th largest in the Netherlands.

Council of European Municipalities and Regions The Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) is the largest organisation of local and regional governments in Europe. Its members are 55 national associations of towns, municipalities and regions from 41 countries that are part of the Council of Europe. Together these associations represent about 150,000 local and regional authorities. At the head of its political structure is its president, currently the mayor of Almere, Annemarie Jorritsma. CEMR’s annual budget is about €2.5 million. The organisation has also assumed the function of the European section of the new worldwide organisation United Cities and Local Governments. History CEMR was founded in Geneva on 28 January 1951 by a group of European mayors as Council of European Municipalities (CEM). CEMR Presidency Annemarie Jorritsma, Mayor of Almere and President of the Association of Netherlands Municipalities, has been elected President of CEMR in December 2013. She is notably succeeding to : Activities
Le Collectif d’Éducation à l’Environnement Francilien Obama: ‘el país que gane la carrera por fuentes alternativas de Obama: ‘el país que gane la carrera por fuentes alternativas de energía se convertirá en líder de la economía global’. Energías alternativas, calentamiento global Washington.- El presidente de EE.UU., Barack Obama, defendió hoy un proyecto de ley que tiene sobre la mesa el Congreso sobre el cambio climático, y afirmó que el país que gane la carrera por las fuentes alternativas de energía se convertirá en líder de la economía global. En un discurso pronunciado en el prestigioso Instituto de Tecnología de Massachusetts (MIT), Obama promovió el desarrollo de fuentes alternativas de energía, horas antes de asistir a un evento de recaudación de fondos para la reelección del gobernador demócrata Deval Patrick. El mundo compite en la búsqueda de nuevas fuentes de energía y “la nación que gane esta competencia será la que lidere la economía global (…) y quiero que EE.UU. sea esa nación, así de simple,” afirmó durante su visita de apenas cuatro horas a Boston.

Home | PU-Europe Covenant of Mayors The Covenant of Mayors  is a European cooperation movement involving local and regional authorities. Signatories of the Covenant of Mayors voluntarily commit to increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources on their territories. By their commitment, they support the European Union 20% CO2 reduction objective to be reached by 2020. After the European Union climate and energy package was adopted in 2008, the European Commission launched the Covenant of Mayors to endorse and support the efforts deployed by local authorities in the implementation of sustainable energy policies.  Covenant of Mayors Signatories European local authorities of all sizes - from small villages to capitals and major metropolitan areas - are eligible to sign up as Covenant of Mayors Signatories. Formal undertakings In order to meet the CO2 reduction targets they set themselves, signatories commit to a series of steps and accept to report and be monitored on their actions.
Covenant of Mayors - News The EU-funded STRATEGO project recently published the Pan-European Thermal Atlas (PETA), an interactive map that shows data on the thermal resources available in any region as well as EU-wide thermal demand. PETA maps heat and cooling demand, the local density of both demands, available waste heat resources and the potential for renewable energy sources. Using the information provided by STRATEGO, national governments will be able to implement National Cooling and Heating Plans (NCHPs)* more efficiently. Using the PETA results, maps of five EU member states have been created to support their governments in improving the efficiency of their energy systems. The maps show demand for heating and cooling in urban areas in Croatia, the Czech Republic, Italy, Romania, and the United Kingdom, which vary greatly in population, climate, resources, and energy supply. *NCHPs are required under Article 14 of the European Commission’s Energy Efficiency Directive.

BIOMASSE EWEA. Asociación Europea de Energía Eólica euesco.org Home Volker Dragon Chairman Andrei Litiu Director Governmental Relations Every public as well as private organisation have one primary goal: bring the best services, products or solutions to market at competitive or at least affordable prices. For staying competitive in the international marketplace, public undertakings and private sector companies must cut costs while continuing to operate more efficient and sustainable than ever before. Energy efficiency of buildings constitutes a brilliant opportunity to simultaneously contribute to all these objectives and Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) is the “royal road” to lever the necessary investments out of funds with guaranteed savings from reducing energy consumption. The eu.ESCO members are willing and ready to provide industry-leading EPC for leveraging building performance and energy efficiency by identifying energy conservation measures and implementing staged deep energy retrofits without utilizing capital funding.
