2013 - 2015 Black Sea Buildings Energy Efficiency Plan (BSBEEP)
Black Sea Basin Joint Operational Programme 2007-2013
BSBEEP Project aims at the establishment of strong regional partnerships and cooperation schemes in Black Sea area through the reinforcement of administrative capacities of local authorities and bodies in a very crucial sector (energy efficiency in buildings) having major environmental and economic impacts locally and globally.
The ultimate goal is to achieve change in the way they treating energy for buildings; facilitating change in the way local societies are acting. Furthermore, the project proposal focuses on the establishment of a knowledge and experience exchange network aiming at the promotion of buildings energy efficiency. The network will engage a wide spectrum of organizations such as local and regional authorities, universities and research centers and NGOs which will help promoting energy efficiency in buildings at local and regional level. Meanwhile it will focus on raising awareness and mobilizing private sector and leverage funds to support future initiatives.
Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH) actively participates in the activities of the project, offering its expertise and experience in respective issues.
More details for the specific project are available on its website: www.bsbeep.com.
