A relevant part of the ePANACEA project is to have a fluent dialogue with European policy makers, certification bodies, end-users and other stakeholders through two types of participatory actions: a feedback loop with policy makers to be carried out through the so called Regional Exploitation Boards (REBs) covering EU-27+Norway+UK, while a dialogue with end-users will be established by means of specific thematic workshops.
The Regional Exploitation Boards (REBs) represent an important pillar of ePANACEA. The project aims to establish a fluent dialogue with different European stakeholders with special focus on national/regional policy makers and certification bodies, which are directly involved in the implementation of the different EPC schemes and are responsible for energy regulations development in their own regions/countries. Therefore, the REBs are composed of these important regional European stakeholders, as well as consumer associations, building products manufacture associations, professional associations, etc.
31 European institutions expressed their commitment already at the proposal stage. During the project’s progress, more institutions will be brought onboard by the REB leaders.
