Brussels, 22 June 2020 - FEDARENE is a European network which brings together authorities and energy agencies at local and regional level. The association acts as a liaison between local/regional authorities and the European Institutions, promotes the exchange of experience and assists the development of transnational projects accelerating energy transition in regions and cities across Europe. FEDARENE has joined the Coalition for Energy Savings in June 2020 as its 28th member association.
Quote from Seamus Hoyne, Secretary General of FEDARENE:
“FEDARENE is excited to join the Coalition for Energy Savings at a time when investments in the energy efficiency sector can restart the world’s economies. Regions, energy agencies and islands have been front runners in innovative energy efficiency programmes focusing on building renovation, energy management and energy poverty alleviation. We look forward to bringing our local knowledge and expertise to the Coalition in order to deliver on the highest level of ambition in EU energy efficiency policies”.
Quote from Stefan Scheuer, Secretary General of the Coalition for Energy Savings:
“We welcome FEDARENE enlarging our broad coalition united in making energy efficiency and savings the first consideration of energy policies. Their knowledge and expertise about the barriers for energy efficiency on the ground are much needed to inform EU policies for a better delivery of results for people and businesses. Together, we will strengthen our contribution to a green recovery and a renovation wave backed by dedicated funding and regulation.”
