Introduction of all Sub- themes
ENERGY EFFICIENCY The first step – and the quickest and cheapest way to reduce energy-related CO2 - is to use less energy, by reducing and managing demand and improving the efficiency of energy use. De-carbonizing energy generation is the next step along the path to a low-carbon economy
The Response so Far …. Typical Carbon Footprint & Components: South Hampshire, UK
POWER Theme 1: ENERGY EFFICIENCY Exploring ways of reducing the overall energy consumption of the partner regions through policy regulation promotion incentives Two subthemes …….
ENERGY EFFICIENCY Subtheme 1.1 Development and delivery of Public Sector Energy Efficiency Strategies and Action Plans to support low-carbon economies Sharing best practice which can be delivered across partner regions ….. ENERGY EFFICIENCY Subtheme 1.2 Public Sector Strategies, Programmes and Initiatives to improve the energy efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of existing buildings, particularly the public housing stock Key focus on the problem of existing buildings – which, in the UK, could represent 70% of the housing stock in 2050 ….

Technical Specifications 5.1 Behaviour Change Second Partner Fair Seville, 15 October 2009 POWER INTERREGIONAL PROGRAMME 2008 – 2013 M.P. Dosi Emilia-Romagna Region
Why to change our behaviour? The knowledge framework Local effects Global warming Citizens quality of life Economic Operators revenue Local activities Citizens behaviour Economic Operators behaviour
How to change behaviour? /1 The Policy targets (1) Change the perception of the bad effects of climate change in every-day life and the consciousness that the local /individual effects come from the global effects which, in turn, are the total sum of local actions Change the reaction of the society actors (business sector, households, public sector) with the role of producing and selling - supply side - and buying and consuming - demand side. The public sector, the institutions, can play an additional role of leading these change by means of regulations, incentives, disincentives: we need to enforce it, in order to move as quick as possible toward a low carbon economy
How to change behaviour? /1 The Policy targets (2) Change the economic development model Need for a life style coherent with the changed international context as the financial crisis bring us to think more and more seriously about it
How to change behaviour? /2 5 Themes for driving the Regional Economies toward a low carbon profile Energy production/use Less Quantity Best Quality of Behaviour change
How to change behaviour? /3 The toolbox (1) Information and education programmes and actions for consumers (including Public administrations trough e.g. Green Public Procurement) in order to committee a smart low- carbon productions (i.e agricultural products directly retailed by the farmers, Eco-labelled recycled products, energy saving house, alternative energies, etc,) and services (ì.e. eco-friendly transports, Energy services etc.) Success stories can generate durable network for exchanging experiences in different communities. Demand side approach
How to change behaviour? /3 The toolbox (2) Training program and marketing campaign encouraging producers ( incl. Public Administrations as service producers ) of smart low-carbon productions ( incl. energy saving buildings and alternative energies producers/sellers ) and services (i.e. eco- friendly transports, energy services etc. ) to offer them also by means of innovative Public & Private partnerships. Success stories can generate durable networks for exchanging experiences on productive sectors Supply-side approach
How to change behaviour? /3 The toolbox (3) Financial instruments (i.e. taxes, incentives, awards, etc.) or other planning tools (e.g. location of industrial parks) by Regional Authorities Screening, comparison and effectiveness at macro-level. Economy-wide approach
How to develop a POWER project on Behaviour Change as the main topic? /1 Issues to be considered The good practice/examples to be shared (one or more actions as a local action plan) The cost/effectiveness in applying these actions compared with business as usual (without the intervention) The feasibility evaluation of the good practice application (mainly from the financial point of view, including the bureaucracy burden) The promotion/diffusion of results in order to positively affect the other aspects of the economy and the society.
How to develop a POWER project on Behaviour Change as the main topic? /2 Outputs, results, indicators Potential Outputs and Outcomes to be achieved: An assessment of successful behaviour-change initiatives Identification of best practices A web-based catalogue of effective tools and techniques Partner regions to use the toolbox and catalogue to develop their own strategies for influencing attitudes and behaviour to achieve a low/zero-carbon society Indicators: Assessment of the potential for carbon savings from successful application of the toolbox and catalogue Extent to which transferable best practice is newly applied in partner regions Potential Results to work towards: Transformational changes in attitudes and behaviour which, with the support of low/zero carbon technologies and sustainable support systems, will deliver a low/zero carbon future, to mitigate dangerous climate change.
