How to fully exploit the potential of the water-energy nexus for energy efficiency

On the 27th of October EU-ASE hosted an online policy session “Fully exploiting the water-energy nexus” organised together with Water Europe at the European Sustainable Energy Week 2021.

EU-ASE President Monica Frassoni moderated the panel composed of Claudia Canevari (DG Ener), MEP Eleonora Evi (European Parliament), Oriana Romano (OECD) and Durk Krol (Water Europe). The speakers discussed how the water sector and water smart-management can lead to energy savings across industrial, commercial and residential water cycles. They also debated the data and methodologies to calculate such savings, with a view to leveraging Art 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive.

Smart technologies for energy-efficient, decarbonised and more comfortable buildings

On 14 October, EU-ASE, together with eu.bac and LightingEurope organised a webinar on the review of the Energy Performance Of Buildings Directive (EPBD) and the role of smart technologies to make EU building stock energy-efficient, decarbonised and more comfortable.

Most of the potential of digitalisation is still unexploited in buildings. The revision of the EPBD creates a unique opportunity to deploy a broad range of energy-efficient and smart technologies, from Artificial Intelligence, to Building Automation and Control Systems or smart lighting, among many other solutions.
