MEDNICE

MEDNICE - MED Programme Networks for an Innovative Cooperation in Energy Efficiency

As a MED hub for Energy Efficiency (EE) innovative and shared solutions, the MEDNICE project will anchor a MED community around energy issues that public organisations face in order to promote modular projects’ results and increase their impact on public policies. Indeed, in the MED area, the majority of public buildings is not adequately designed to reduce their energy consumption and improve their EE performance. This is partly due to a lack of awareness of owners and managers and knowledge gaps regarding common answers to this transnational challenge. Thus the overall objective of MEDNICE is to empower MED projects’ partners through the establishment of a MED community and a joint transnational framework around energy efficiency in public buildings. By setting up training and peer learning mechanisms, MEDNICE will contribute to increase the capacity of owners and managers of public buildings to design and implement better energy efficiency practices. It will set up a knowledge platform that will allow for capitalizing and communicating results and outputs of the modular projects. It will serve as a cornerstone of a transnational peer network laying the ground for a MED identity. MEDNICE will also analyze and summarize EE practices through thematic and policy papers to be promoted and benefit the MED community. Relying on Ambassadors this will help disseminate and transfer messages in order to advocate for specific MED EE policies and mainstream them in relevant strategies.

Project objective

The overall objective of the project is to empower MED projects’ partners through the establishment of a MED community and a joint transnational framework around energy efficiency in public buildings. The project will set up a platform that will allow for transferring outputs deriving from the modular projects. The transnational peer network to be created by the project will facilitate peer-to-peer exchanges and joint learning through virtual and face-to-face meetings. By relying on a strong MED community, empowered public stakeholders will have the means to review their policies and investments needed to optimize energy planning measures and management to ultimately reduce energy consumption.
