EBR hosts first Northern Periphery & Artic Programme Meeting

22 February 2016

 

East Border Region were delighted to welcome colleagues from Iceland, Norway and the Faroe Islands to Dundalk, Co. Louth last week to take part in our first partner meeting of our Northern Periphery & Artic Programme project entitled "Near Zero Energy".

EBR secured preparatory funding under the NPA 2014-2020 to develop a project based on the Recast Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD2) which requires that new buildings occupied and owned by Public Authorities erected after 2018, and all other new buildings erected after 2020, must be 'nearly zero energy'.

Colleagues were greeted by the EBR Board and Chairman Cllr Michael Ruane extended a warm welcome to our transnational visitors.
