Project aims: Advancing the energy auditing, the qualification programme of housing renovation and policy dialogue for mitigation and adaptation synergies in housing renovations and service sector.

Project budget: 1 046 503 € (incl ERDF support 745 435.09 €, ENI/Russian support 98 761.50€ ).

CAMS Platform is part-financed by the  European Union (European Regional Development Fund and European Neighbourhood Instrument) as part of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014-2020, Priority 2 “Natural resources”, Specific objective 2.3 “Energy efficiency

Duration: 9/2019−9/2021

Energy efficiency measures such as renovation of buildings can address some of the vulnerabilities to climate change impacts and also counteract the increased energy demand, such as climate proofing buildings against extreme weather events using solar engineering, carbon neutral refurbishment materials, cool or green roofs; switching to distributed generation secures simultaneously climate change adaptation.

Aim of the CAMS platform is to learn from existing projects and facilitate, how energy efficiency measures could be co-used for increasing resilience of housing and services sector. CAMS platform develops macroregional database for energy audits, standardizes and verifies energy performance criteria for buildings and develops guidance on achieving synergy between climate change mitigation and adaptation.

CAMS platform brings together knowledge and experience from following projects funded by

Effect4Buildings, LowTemp, Area 21, CO2Community, ActNow, SUMBA, BEA-APP, RDI2CluB of Baltic Sea Interreg

and HERON, SIM4NEXUS; , ENLARGE, PANEL 2050 of Horizon 2020 and ACREE funded by EuropeAid.

Projects aligned

Projects funded by Baltic Sea Interreg:

EFFECT4Buildings

The project EFFECT4buildings develops in collaboration with public building managers a comprehensive decision-making support toolbox with a set of financial instruments to unlock the investments and lower the risks of implementing energy efficiency measures (retrofitting, upgrading and deep renovation) in buildings owned by public stakeholders.

 

LowTemp

The project “Low Temperature District Heating for the Baltic Sea Region” (LowTEMP) will make the district heating supply in the partner regions more sustainable and promote the installation of so-called 4th generation district heating networks. These systems are characterised by the transfer of lower temperature heat in optimally insulated pipes with reduced pipe dimensions. At the same time, multiple heat supply options are possible in these systems, i.e. the use of waste heat from industrial processes as well as renewable heat sources like geothermal and solar-thermal.

AREA 21

The project seeks to model energy efficient urban areas of the future, adopting collaborative stakeholder engagement processes in the strategic planning and implementation of energy solutions. AREA 21 brings together public authorities, energy providers, property owners and citizens to find and apply the best solutions for saving energy to decrease CO2 emissions.

 

Co2mmunity

The project mission is to facilitate community energy project development as part of a transition to renewable energy sources. To achieve this they provide knowledge, develop tools, and organise stakeholder meetings. Co2mmunity will also work on ‘Bringing Community Energy on the socio-political Agenda’, which will result in bringing the political support from national government.

 

 

Act Now

The project wants to support Baltic municipalities to succeed from Strategic Energy Action Plans to an actual reduction of CO2 emissions. The project’s aim is to help municipal staff involved in energy efficiency measures by improving their knowledge about energy losses, competences for preparing investments, and skills to stimulate private investments in energy efficiency.

 

 

SUMBA

The project will develop and test tools that help urban and transport planners to assess, plan, and integrate intermodal mobility solutions into transport plans and policies of their cities and municipalities.

BEA-APP

The project aims at increasing the capacity of regional and renewable energy planning actors by  spatial planning instruments targeting renewable energy development, stakeholder involvement methods and financing systems to increase social acceptance.

 

 

RDI2Club

The project goal is to support smart, sustainable and inclusive growth of the bioeconomy in rural areas of the Baltic Sea region. RDI2CluB aims to help innovation actors apply EU smart specialisation approaches to their specific field and region. The transnational partnership and network of the project plans to, for instance, support new business development in rural areas and create bio-business hubs to improve innovation management.

 

Projects funded by Horizon 2020:

HERON

The project aim is at facilitating policy makers of multi-level governance in EU, to develop and monitor energy efficiency policies in building and transport sectors, through forward-looking socio-economic research in seven EU and one candidate countries.

SIM4NEXUS

The project aims to address knowledge and technology gaps and thereby facilitate the design of policies within the Nexus (water-energy-land-food and climate). The project will deliver a Serious Game, a cloud-based, integrated tool for testing and evaluating policy decisions.

ENLARGE

The project aims to generate and disseminate shared, structured and constructive knowledge on participatory governance through an intense process of dialogue and communication among policy makers, civil society actors and practitioners. The focus is on sustainable energy and, more generally, on all the solutions aimed at generating efficient and effective public services and endowments.

PANEL 2050

The project aim is to create durable and replicable sustainable energy networks at local level, where relevant stakeholders collaborate for the creation of a energy visions, strategies and action plans for the transition towards low carbon communities in 2050.

Project funded by EuropeAid:

ARCEE

The project aim is to show how we can refurbish old residential panel buildings into more efficient buildings. Project will develop recommendations and demonstrate good practice on how to improve energy efficiency in residential buildings. Project want to inform residents about what they can do to save energy.
