1st Workshop of the Italian Pilot

The workshop was held on 20th of July 2017 at the Basilicata Region headquarters in Potenza, Italy. It was co-organized by SEL and CNR-IMAA with the active participation of the Potenza Municipality.

The activities were organised in two sessions. The first one was addressed at presenting the PrioritEE project and the results of the online survey submitted to the stakeholders prior to the meeting. The second session was aimed at identifying the Pilot’s objectives through an interactive dialogue.

Nearly 25 people attended this first workshop which opened with the signature of a Cooperation Agreement between the CNR-IMAA (Lead Partner) and Municipality of Potenza (Associate Partner) for the implementation of the Potenza Pilot.

This discussion arisen during the technical sessions pointed out that public schools are the main target buildings for the Potenza pilot and that effectiveness of interventions should be based on a set of simple and replicable indicators. Moreover, there is a general need to improve the capacities of local administrations in the utilisation of financial instruments to improve EE and RES utilization.
