The conference presented the lessons from the project to an audience of hospital stakeholders from a range of countries. This included the lessons from pilot projects conducted with 18 European hospitals to achieve 50% of energy use from renewable energy sources by 2020 and the development of longer term zero carbon roadmaps. The conference also included insights from other European projects and advanced activities at national level. The important issue of financing energy efficiency and RES was a key element of the second day of the conference where presentations were given on innovative financing mechanisms and also on the new EU Agenda 2014-2020. The conference closed with presentations and discussions of how hospitals could be encouraged to become leaders in community energy projects – a key factor in the move to increased RES and, eventually, zero carbon hospitals.
