Workshop of national actors in Salzburg

On February 5th, Austrian Energy Agency´s REPLACE workshop took place: with national stakeholders and a representative of the state of Salzburg, a pilot region in Austria.

Participants of the workshop were federal representatives of end consumers, guilds, renewable energies, ministeries, funding agencies, boiler manufacturers and contractors, exchanging views on the implementation of REPLACE in the target region of Salzburg.

In the course of 2020, another meeting of the group is envisaged in order to receive information about the progress in Salzburg and to be able to contribute ideas. That way, the group acts as a national advisory board of the Local Working Group in Salzburg

Local Working Groups: 1st meetings start

In REPLACE’s 10 European target regions, local working groups start from January until April 2020. Their common goal is to develop, implement and steer regional replacement campaigns and to realize sustainable heating and cooling systems. Until March 2022 there are 4 – 5 meetings planned for each region.

REPLACE Kick-Off in Vienna

At the REPLACE Kick-Off in Vienna in November 2019, 12 partner-organisations from 10 European regions met to get activities started. Their common goal: to replace old heating and cooling systems with climate-friendly alternatives and to save energy through simple renovation measures.
