In South-East Europe (SEE), the transfer, experimentation and consolidation of know-how related to the use and production of energy, following a good planning and employing the appropriate management methods, are important for the improvement of the energy balances of the countries. ENER-SUPPLY project will assist the local authorities in these activities, particularly in relation to the utilization of renewable energy sources (RES) and the implementation of energy efficiency (EE) measures.
The main project activities are:
Transfer of knowledge about RES utilization from the experienced countries to the partners and local authorities from the less experienced countries.
Experimentation of good practices of Energy Managements Systems (EMS), including introduction of EMS concept, testing and evaluation of the EMS implementation in selected local territories.
Encouraging EE and RES investments in the territories, through: developing maps of RES potential; feasibility studies for EE and RES; identification of financing opportunities; and promotion of these results to potential investors.
The project ENER-SUPPLY is financed by the South-East Europe Transnational Cooperation Programme of the EU. It is a joint effort of 14 partners from 11 SEE countries, leaded by the Municipality of Potenza, Italy. The project started in April 2009 and will finish in March 2012.
