European Citizens Climate Cup
The European Citizens Climate Cup is a household competition between different countries/regions to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. ECCC addresses European private householders, families and singles, and is based on the energy consumption of their houses. Participants have one year to implement in their own houses strategies and measures to reduce their overall energy consumption – the greater the reduction the bigger their chance of winning the competition!

Report on ENNEREG Knowledge Transfer Workshops
Experience from the ENNEREG Regions [EN] This document reports and evaluates each of the 4 Knowledge Transfer Workshops that were organised among regional partners of the ENNEREG project. The main aim of these workshops was to ensure cross-regional transfer of experience within the various cooperation topics (Sustainable Energy Themes) of the project. By sharing their experiences, the 12 ENNEREG regions hope to inspire and assist other regions in developing, implementing and evaluating their own Sustainable Energy Action Plans.

Strategy for future action in the ENNEREG regions
Experience from the ENNEREG Regions
During the project, the ENNEREG partners have worked in the development of sustainable energy action plans (SEAP) in their represented regions and in the promotion of sustainable energy projects (SEP). The objective of this document is to present how they intend to continue their efforts after the end of the project, developing the activities planned in the regional SEAP and ensuring the attraction of the necessary resources to promote sustainable energy projects.
Some of the SEAPs defined with the support of the project have been approved by the respective administrations and others still need to be matured to be accepted at the regional level and to be implemented. Thus, the situation is not the same in every region, and the approach to work in sustainable energy is not the same either. This document summarizes the common as well as the specific aspects about how the regions expect to organize and carry on the work on sustainable energy in the next future.

Monitoring of Wind Turbines Rhône-Alpes, France and Wales, UK - ENNEREG Good Practice in Cooperation - Monitoring
ENNEREG Good Practice Case Studies [EN] The Welsh Government wanted to be able to monitor all land-use planning applications for wind-power developments in order to assess whether policy ambitions were being met and identify barriers to development. Local Planning Authorities are requested to complete quarterly returns and this information was available to the ENNEREG project. It was clear, even from a quick inspection, that these returns were not complete or accurate. Some local authority officers completing the returns were obviously unclear about definitions such as “installed capacity” and the survey returns had obvious errors to the experienced eye. Even if it were accurate the survey ceased at the point at which consent was granted or finally refused – it did not provide information on implantation.

European Energy Efficiency Legislation
Policy & Legislation [EN] Reducing energy consumption and eliminating energy wastage are among the main goals of the European Union (EU). EU support for improving energy efficiency will prove decisive for competitiveness, security of supply and for meeting the commitments on climate change made under the Kyoto Protocol. There is significant potential for reducing consumption, especially in energy-intensive sectors such as buildings, manufacturing, energy conversion and transport. At the end of 2006, the EU pledged to cut its annual consumption of primary energy by 20% by 2020. To achieve this goal, it is working to mobilise public opinion, decision-makers and market operators and to set minimum energy efficiency standards and rules on labelling for products, services and infrastructure.

Alter-Motive Show Case Directory
Good Practice Collections and Publications
The core objective of the Alter-Motive project has been to derive an action plan for implementing effective least-cost policy strategies (for the EU, specific countries & regions) to achieve a significant increase in innovative alternative fuels (AF) and corresponding alternative more efficient automotive technologies (AAMT) to head towards a sustainable individual & public transport system. AF comprise bioethanol, biodiesel, synthetic fuels, biogas, hydrogen,renewable electricity, LPG & natural gas, whilst AAMT include biofuel, fuel cell & electric vehicles and various types of hybrid systems as well as systems based on natural or biogas.
This Intelligent Energy - Europe project has developed a number of resources, including a Show Case Directory.

DISPLAY Campaign (EN / FR / DE / HU)
Tool / Methodology
The European Display® Campaign is a voluntary scheme designed by energy experts from European towns and cities. When started in 2003 it was initially aimed at encouraging local authorities to publicly display the energy and environmental performances of their public buildings using the same energy label that is used for household appliances.
La campagne européenne Display® est une initiative volontaire conçue par des experts en énergie de villes européennes. Elle est destinée à encourager les autorités locales à afficher publiquement les performances énergétiques et environnementales de leurs bâtiments publics, en utilisant le modèle de l’étiquette des appareils électroménagers.
Die europäische Display-Kampagne beruht auf einer freiwilligen Initiative von Energiefachleuten in europäischen Städten und Gemeinden. Der Startschuss erfolgte im Jahr 2003. Zunächst war die Kampagne als Impuls für Kommunen gedacht, in Anlehnung an das Energielabel für Elektrohaushaltsgeräte die Energie- und Umwelteffizienz ihrer öffentlichen Gebäude öffentlich bekannt zu geben.
