Title: PED task force for PED framework development
The goal of this STSM was setting up a framework for policy/regulatory/economic PED + data collection on national frameworks.
The working plan was divided into four phases. In the first phase (week 27, starting counting weeks from 1. Jan 2022), previous work on policy/regulatory/economic analysis is consolidated. The 2 PED concepts were presented and discussed at the CESB conference in Praha, Czechia. In a dedicated meeting the framework was set up and the main stakeholders are identified.
In the second phase (week 28), further national policy/regulatory/economic frameworks were collected by desktop research. For this, a “STSM task force” was formed. We included Wojciech Belch (leader of the participatory and planning team at CVUT UCEEB) and Rayan al Sawalhi (student at Dalarna (WG2) also participating in Annex 83, Subtask A). The initial meeting took place on 15.07.2022 (online) and the task force was formed. In this way we were able to synchronize this STSM with WG2, because interdisciplinarity and tools for implementation and upscaling are closely related, and to cooperate at the same time.
In the third phase (week 29) the following activities were performed in the task force:
- Collection of policy/regulatory/economic frameworks of PEDs in different national contexts.
- Identifying the policy/regulation/economy contribution to PED (database).
- The work was consolidated by discussions with different stakeholders during the SSPCR conference in Bolzano, Italy.
2 dedicated workshops on PEDs were led by Matthias Haase and other participants of the CA from WG1 (Vicky Albert-Seifried, Beril Alpagut) and WG4 (Maria Beatrice Andreucci). In addition, Matthias Haase presented and discussed Energy Master Planning for regions, cities and districts at SSPCR conference in Bolzano. Several different approaches for low energy communities with respect to its methods and tools used for energy master planning (EMP) were analyzed and the results were discussed with different stakeholders. It was found that spanning over the lifetime of a neighborhood, EMP needs to be implemented on different governance levels. EMP is a central element of policy/regulation/economic framework as it lies it focus on the tactical mid-term planning and implementation phase in which the assessment, scenario building, planning and implementation is taking place. There, the foundation for further generating shared value for public and private actors will be formed.
In the final phase (week 30 to 35) we were able to conclude which a list of policy/regulation/economic constraints on national level to establishing a framework for PED.
The findings were collected in a report and will be submitted to a dedicated journal. This will help to understand a Positive Energy District innovation eco-system.
