Experts from Ukraine and Romania took part in the round table on energy conservation and energy audit within the “Cross-Border Cooperation Smart Energy” project
On Friday, November 13, 2020, a round table on energy conservation and energy audit was held as part of the project "Cross-Border Cooperation Smart Energy" (CBCSmartEnergy) (2SOFT / 1.2 / 52). We would like to mention that the above project is implemented and funded under the Joint Operational Programme Romania-Ukraine 2014-2020. The project partners are Ștefan cel Mare University of Suceava (Romania), Uzhhorod National University and the International Association of Regional Development Institutions (Ukraine).
The round table was attended by the project stakeholders from Ukraine and Romania - scientists, researchers, and experts who provide energy audit services and participate in the development of local and regional energy efficiency strategies.
The event was opened by Myroslava Lendel, the Vice-Rector of UzhNU and Project Manager: “This event is very important for achieving the overall goal of our project, which is the application of the best practices in the use of smart energy in the border area between Ukraine and Romania. As you remember, the main goal of our project is to increase the use of new technologies and innovations in the field of renewable energy, which is implemented by means of promotion and support of research and innovation in the border regions of Ukraine and Romania. Our objective is also to establish a strong platform for joint research activities and training in the fields of renewable energy and resource efficiency.”
After the introductory part, each participant of the round table was given the floor to present their topic. In particular, they talked about innovative approaches to energy saving, local policy of the Transcarpathian territorial communities in the field of energy saving and energy efficiency, action plan on sustainable energetics and climate as an intersectoral priority of Uzhhorod-2030 City Development Strategy, and mechanisms of involving local communities in other energy saving processes. The round table ended with a discussion of reports and questions to the speakers.
