Collaborative Analysis and Best Practices
This report concludes on the findings of the Collaborative Analysis for fostering public authorities’ capacities to plan, finance and manage integrated urban regeneration for sustainable energy uptake. Through the collaborative analyses in Croatia, Netherlands and Spain best practices and recommendations were identified. In the country studies barriers, solutions and strategies for fostering public capacity to plan, finance and manage integrated urban regeneration for sustainable energy uptake were identified. These findings were co-created in collaborative settings (workshops) among FosterREG partners together with national, regional and local stakeholders. In total about 250 stakeholders participated in all of the FosterREG collaborative analysis sessions held in each of the countries. In a final EU wide workshop held in Brussels the findings from the FosterREG country studies were further refined and recommendations were made.
In this concluding report, the findings from the Collaborative Analysis are synthesized. The study shows evidence for the following main recommendations that refer back to the central objectives of the FosterREG project.
Integrated reports for Spain, Croatia and The Netherlands
Earlier this year, in parallel, in FosterREG three national clusters (in Croatia, the Netherlands and Spain), a series of workshops have addressed the barriers to reach the EU objectives on Energy Efficiency in Urban Regeneration. Specifically for this purpose a process map has been developed to guide a collaborative approach (with several stakeholders), first identifying the barriers, generating a long list of solutions and working towards coherent strategies to overcome the identified barriers.
The results and findings from the implemented workshops have been integrated in national reports:
- Integrated report for Spain (Annexes)
- Integrated report for Croatia
- Integrated report for The Netherlands
Multilevel FosterREG Stakeholder Mapping Report
An important initial step of the project has been the identification and analysis of the stakeholders related to energy efficient urban regeneration. This challenging task aimed to map, for each of the cities and in relation to their regional and national structures, all relevant agents in relation to legislation and policy, financing, management and implementation of projects.
The analysis has allowed to have a better overview the particular organizational structure in each country, where the public administration has a concrete role on defining laws and regulations, and local entities are closer to the actual planning processes and operations. Read the report >>>
Energy efficiency in Urban Regeneration Framework Report
Analyses of existing policies, regulation framework, planning, management and financial mechanisms in each of the national clusters of FosterREG participating countries (Spain, Netherland and Croatia) at European, national, regional and local levels related to how energy efficiency is integrated in urban regeneration plans have been presented in the latest report developed in the framework of FosterREG.
