On April 2, 2019, the Renovation of Public Buildings Exchange Group met for the second time with about forty participants. This opportunity was offered by the European SHERPA project, of which AMORCE is the French partner, which aims to strengthen the capacity of local authorities to renovate their public buildings. 

Vera Drouhet, in charge of the Project SHERPA in AMORCE presented a first legislative and regulatory point.

Xavier Marti, Government of Catalonia, Coordinator of the Sherpa project,  presented the SHERPA project, detailing objectives and achievements including the establishment of a European database on the energy consumption of buildings.

Then, INDDIGO intervened to present how energy audits, particularly those carried out under SHERPA, can feed into a fleet-wide energy retrofit strategy.

Pascal RAEPSAET, Director of Building Maintenance, City of Lille, explained his renovation strategy with the creation of a dedicated master plan (Master Plan for Energy Renovation) partly based on the Planniss'immo tool. This tool developed by Négawatt was the subject of a detailed presentation following this intervention. Lille also presented some of the strategies underway to accelerate energy renovation (renovation in prefabrication and intracting) and the deployment of renewable energies.

Then a module on funding was planned. At first AMORCE shared the lessons of a survey carried out among its members and the news concerning the EWCs.

In a second time, Caroline Canal, energy expert of the department of Herault, explained the implementation of two energy performance contracts on the hotel department and departmental archives. This experience feedback highlighted how the competitive dialogue makes it possible to design a powerful solution with the chosen group.

Finally, two consumption monitoring tools were presented: Ubigreen used by the city of Toulouse and Energisme. These interventions shed light on the way in which these tools make it possible to identify corrective actions to be implemented to optimize energy consumption per building (identification of water leaks, verification of reductions on evenings and weekends, etc.).
