Project - North-European Energy Cluster


Description (EN): The North-European Energy Cluster (N-EEC) is a joint action, formed by three separate ongoing projects in the northern peripheral regions of Europe. The lead partner of N-EEC, OUAS, also leads the Interreg NPA -funded project e-Lighthouse (Energy Saving Lighthouse Cities in the NPA Region). The second partner project is Renovation Center (A Nordic Center for Energy Efficient Renovations), which is funded by Interreg Botnia-Atlantica and lead by Novia University of Applied Sciences. The third partner project is ICNB (Increasing Competence in Northern Building and Construction Sector), funded by Interreg Nord. Lead partners of each of the three projects and other key partners from these form the N-EEC project consortium. The core idea in N-EEC is to gather the strengths and best practises from each ongoing project and create added value by arranging and hosting several joint events (conferences, symposiums, seminars, stakeholder round-tables etc.) concerning energy use in buildings, retrofitting of public buildings, carbon footprint and life-cycle assessment of buildings as key themes. During the events, each project will report their outputs and findings on building energy related issues. The best practises and the most important lessons learnt will be disseminated to important stakeholders taking part in the event as audience or in live streamed webinars. Materials from the events (presentations, videos etc.) can later be found on each projects websites. The second main task is to distribute our know-how and results to the pan-European level by developing two project applications for EU programs, such as Horizon H2020 ( ), Urban Innovation Actions ( ), Interreg Europe (, URBACT ( and LIFE ( The project intend to extend the dissemination efforts wider inside NPA region by arranging one event in Reykjavik, Iceland, in co-operation with the key stakeholder Orkusetur.
