The project PUBLEnEfSupporting Public Authorities for Implementing Energy Efficiency Policies funded by Horizon 2020 –  assists public authorities in effective implementation of sustainable energy policies across different administrative levels with use of pre-existing best practices and tools. After a research phase of the project during which the comprehensive analysis of good cases and needs regarding the energy efficiency policies was performed, project partners started to implement specific roadmaps in their countries engaging national, regional, and local public bodies. The roadmaps  are enhancing the capacity of public authorities to actually implement energy efficiency pathways towards sustainability. Starting from the national objectives and policies, the emphasis is put on local and regional level authorities and actors materializing these policies into concrete actions. The specific roadmaps gear towards improving the design, implementation and/or functioning of specific elements of the existing energy efficiency frameworks that require attention (based on the assessments of their needs). These roadmaps will support the existing policy framework and strategic plans that require a “push” in the right direction. The main focus of this policy brief is on the PUBLEnEf policy roadmaps that aim at stimulating energy efficiency renovations in the building sector, thus contributing to achieving the national, regional, and local energy efficiency targets established in strategy documents e.g. Energy Efficiency Action Plans.
