AMBASSADOR and TRIBUTE at EeB PPP Impact Workshop in Brussels
The Workshop on Impact of the Energy Efficient Buildings Public Private Partnership (EeB PPP) took place in Brussels on 18 and 19 April 2016. The event was organised jointly by the EC and the E2BA (Energy Efficient Buildings Association). It provided an opportunity to present projects, share results and highlight challenges. Projects that were presented included approaches to market assessment, performance monitoring, extensive demonstration activity, pilot production, training and education actions. Some projects are already demonstrating impactful results through patent applications, technology cost reduction and spin out set up. In order to maximise impact of the PPP, participation of all the stakeholders is fundamental from end users to industrial/ academic partners and public authorities. Other important factors include early stage development of commercialisation strategies and approaches for standardisation of products. Projects also need support at early stage to develop solid exploitation strategies that speed time to market. Timely and targeted regulation are also strong drivers of market uptake. TRIBUTE consortium was represented by Mr. Henri Obara from Schneider Electric, the Scientific Coordinator of TRIBUTE project. AMBASSADOR project was represented by Mr. Václav Smítka from AMIRES.
