Lebanon: National Energy Hub launched under EU-funded ESMES project
July 2, 2020
Twelve members of ESMES project team from Lebanon and Jordan along with twenty stakeholders from Lebanon working in different sectors gathered in an online meeting on 25 June for an event held by the Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC), a partner in ESMES Project.
The purpose of the meeting was to engage the participants in the National Energy Hub, explaining ESMES objectives, activities and implementation methodology. The Energy Hub would provide a room for knowledge exchange and cooperation among stakeholders and decision makers to develop cross-border case studies, strategies, and guidelines for sustainable energy rehabilitations in public schools. It would develop the knowledge and operational capacities of energy companies and educational institutions in order to plan, implement and evaluate energy rehabilitations that are sustainable, cost-effective and tailored to public schools buildings.
ESMES project focuses on the optimization of energy consumption in public schools through innovative, monitoring-based renewable energy and energy efficiency (REEE) pilot actions. It will improve the capacity of 5 public institutions in order to implement innovative energy rehabilitations.
