CommONEnergy recommendations

Over 60% of the shopping centers will undergo restructuring by 2030: an occasion not to be missed to achieve energy-saving solutions. The message, loud and clear, is being sent by CommONEnergy, European project for the energy efficiency of malls which, to contribute to the present community discussions on clean energy, has generated this past June a document of “Policy recommendations” freely accessible at the official site commonenergyproject.eu.

Over 60% of the shopping centers will undergo restructuring by 2030: an occasion not to be missed to achieve energy-saving solutions. The message, loud and clear, is being sent by CommONEnergy, European project for the energy efficiency of malls which, to contribute to the present community discussions on clean energy, has generated this past June a document of “Policy recommendations” freely accessible at the official site commonenergyproject.eu.

Based on experiences and the research of more than 23 organizations, as well as on some sample cases, the recommendations can be summarized in 4 key points:

  1. “Involve the stakeholders”, that is owners and managers of the shopping centers. To achieve this, it is necessary to use the fact that the incentives for the energy savings, offer advantages to businesses and consumers, allowing them to maximize profits and ensure a better experience for the clients;

  2. “Communicate the benefits of the innovation”: many stakeholders do not yet know the benefits of the energy efficiency and this fact is blocking the development of consistent businesses and saving opportunities equal to millions of Euro;

  3. “Promote packages of energy efficiency technology”: to sustain the energy improvement in shopping centers, it is essential to update the codes, standards and construction standards. The promotion of an efficient technology goes through regulations and standardization;

  4. “Support the energy transition”: the European Commission has defined a long-term vision to guide the way towards a society with low carbon emissions and with efficient resources, where buildings will be an integral part of a larger energy system.

As a demonstration of how the change is already possible today, CommONEnergy has therefore brought into play the example of the shopping center Coop MareMà in Grosseto, whose photovoltaic panels power both the building and the clients’ electrical vehicles. Solar energy surplus is, instead, stored in specific NiMH batteries, which releases back in times of need.

Financed by the European Union, the project CommONEnergy was started in 2013 and will end on September 7th 2017 in Brussels, where a final conference and an award ceremony will take place.
