Climate Change and Energy
Activities of the REC
Marta Szigeti Bonifert
Executive Director
Concept and purpose of this event
• An important part of the Stabilization and Association
process to the EU covers the preparations for the
transposition of energy and climate related directives
of the EU
• We hope that this meeting will provide opportunity
• to present and discuss the EU Climate and Energy policy
• to discuss ways for regional cooperation for the
representatives of different ministries and stakeholders in
the candidate and potential candidate countries in SEE
Climate Change in Focus
• Since 1999, the REC, in cooperation with
numerous partners has been working on
the fields of Climate Change to help
Central and Eastern European countries
identify policies and measures to comply
with the commitments and respond to the
opportunities created by the UNFCCC and
the Kyoto Protocol
Regional cooperation
Cross-border solutions
National activities
Local/municipality support
Partnerships – Energy and Transport
• A global coalition to accelerate the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency,
announced at the World Summit on Sustainable Development, initiated by the UK
• REC’s role in REEEP
Develop Information Clearing House for CEE and Turkey
Organise regional workshops and training; disseminate information
• Type 2 partnership of governments, businesses and associations, initiated in 2002 during the
Johannesburg Summit by the Italian Government
• REC’s role in MEDREP
Developing and operating the training and development centre; to provide capacity building on
both macro and micro levels
Execution of projects leading to the development of an advanced renewable energy market
across the target regions/countries (tradable renewable certificates, biomass and geothermal
projects in the Balkans, etc.)
Coordination between the MEDREP and REEEP initiatives
• for artricle 6 (national focal point for Turkey; regional focal point)
• UNEP/US EPA and other partners – Global coalition
• REC’s role
Addressing Clean Fuels and Vehicles Issues in Central and Eastern Europe, Caucasus and
Central Asia regions
Education for Sustainable Development: Green
Pack – developing for the forth coming COP
special edition on CC
Example of key multi stakeholder partnership project
2001 with the support of Toyota Motor Corporation, the REC
developed a comprehensive environmental education programme
A multi-media environmental education curriculum kit
• Primarily intended for secondary school teachers and their students
• 22 environmental topics – 5 areas
Environmental Components, Threats to the Environment, Human
Activities and Impact, Global Challenges, Values,
• Available in 11 countries (ongoing preparations in 5 countries)
• 15.000 teachers
• 1.800.000 kids
Belgrade Initiative on Climate Change
Presented at a REC Side Event Bali, 7 December 2007
• Launched by Serbia in 2006, as a result of the South-East
European Ministerial consultation process, and it is
endorsed at the Ministerial Conference “Environment for
Europe”, held in 2007 at Belgrade
• Within the Initiative it is proposed to develop a SEE
Climate Change Framework Action Plan (SEE/CCFAP) in
accordance with the principles and objectives of the
United Nations Framework Convention on Climate
Change (UNFCCC).
• This relates to Research and Systematic Observation, Education,
Training, Public Awareness and Capacity Building
• It is also proposed to establish a Sub-regional Virtual Climate Change
related Centre in Belgrade as a means of improving sub-regional
cooperation, which would also facilitate and coordinate implementation
of the SEE/CCFAP
Kyoto in Homes
• Inform and educate teachers, students and
their families about
• the problems
• the goals and
• the potential for energy efficiency (EE) measures and
renewable energy sources (RES) in their homes
• Tools
• web-based methodology >> enable families for energy saving
• new resources in schools >> integration to subjects
• dissemination >> Sustainable Energy Europe
• Donors
• EU Intelligent Energy-Europe programme
• National agencies
Climate Change in “Center”
• Since 1999 the REC implemented
numerous projects on Climate Change
• The aim of a new project – end date June,
2008 – to create a resource center for all
these knowledge and experience within a
unique environment in our new
• Zero Emission Conference Center
Guide & Good practices
• REC Conference Center with zerocarbon emission
• Fossil-fuel based emission is reduced to zero by
minimizing energy demand and using local
energy resources
• The biggest solar power plant in Hungary
• High efficiency envelope
• minimise heat loss in winter, prevent heat gains in summer and
maximise the exploitation of natural lighting
• Lighting system
• a „light shelf” will diffuses natural light throughout the interior
• Photovoltaic
• The PV system will generate close to 30 kilowatt hours
• Heating ventilating and air-conditioning
• A ground source heat pump will be the primary source of heating
and cooling to take advantage of the area's wealth of geothermal
• Architecture
• Energy systems and architecture have been designed in a
modern and integrated approach
Opening date: 26/27 June 2008
