The 6th Interregional Event for Enerselves project has been hosted by the Malta Intelligent Energy Management Agency (MIEMA).
Gozitan and Maltese public entities and local stakeholders, had the opportunity last Wednesday and Thursday to participate in a workshop and a dissemination event, involving six European countries, with the purpose of exchanging information and knowledge on policy instruments and projects related to energy consumption and efficiency in public buildings.
MIEMA said that the project addresses the need for Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs) mandated by the European Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings.
The Enerselves project was approved under the “low-carbon economy” thematic area of the Interreg Europe programme and aims to promote and support the integration of renewable energy sources (RES) in public buildings.
There were two site visits related to RES best practices in Gozo and Malta organised during the event.The first was held at the Ministry for Gozo, which focused on a best practice in the field of photovoltaic installations on public buildings, while the second visit was held at the House of Parliament, chosen as a best practice related to the use of geothermal energy.
The Maltese partner, MIEMA, is a partner in the Enerselves consortium along with institutions from Spain (Extremadura Energy Agency – lead partner), Sweden (Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden), Poland (Marshal Office of Swietokrzyskie Region), Italy (Lazio Region and Autonomous Region of Sardinia) and Romania (Agentia Pentru Dezvoltare Regionala Nord-Est).
MIEMA will be organising a local stakeholders’ endorsement seminar and is participating at the EUSEW event in Brussels in June.

The Enerselves project is part-financed (85%) by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), through the INTERREG Europe Programme
