The main instrument used to implement the EU 2020 objectives at local level is the Covenant of Mayors, which fosters the development of Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs); these plans aim to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 20% by 2020. These action plans are linked to different municipal promotion tools, and a set of indicators has also been...
In recent years, big efforts have been dedicated to identify which are the factors with highest influence in the energy consumption of residential buildings. These factors include aspects such as weather dependence, user behaviour, socio-economic situation, type of the energy installations and typology of buildings. The high number of factors incre...

The aim of this paper is to understand the influence of the user behavior on tubular digesters performance, through a technical and a social approach in the Bolivian context. Fifteen domestic digesters were evaluated, from which 6 were installed in the Altiplano and other 6 in the Andean Valleys. Data about slurry temperature, feedstock and biogas...
The main goal of the session is to establish a discussion among energy experts and public technicians or municipal authorities on how to promote "nearly" Zero-Energy Buildings in their municipalities. Results of several European projects (AIDA, SEMANCO), as well as some conclusions on how the nZEB definitions can be included in urban planning and i...
Energy efficiency benchmarking can be used to monitor changes in the overall efficiency of buildings. Benchmarking models, based on energy efficiency indicators, are valuable tools for both public and private stakeholders because they allow an improvement in the building energy management. For the last decade, some governments have used these tools...
