Europen project “PEACE_Alps–Pooling Energy Action plans and Enhancing their implementation in the Alps” is co-financed under Alpine Space Programme 2014-2020. PEACE_Alps partnership is composed of 11 partners coming from 6 different European countries: Piemonte Region, lead partner, and Ökoinstitut Südtirol Alto Adige from Italia; Development agency Sinergija and Business Support Center of Kranj from Slovenia; Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Énergie Environnement (AURA-EE) and Association pour une Gestion Durable de l’Energie – AGEDEN from France; Energy and Innovation Centre of Weiz from Austria; Energy and Environmental Centre Allgaeu – EZA!, Energiewende Oberland – EWO and Climate Alliance from Germany; Planair SA from Switzerland
Moreover, the project relies on 25 Observers including Envipark. All partners have a long standing experience on sustainable energy planning at local/regional level and in coordinating and participating in EU energy related projects.
PEACE-ALPS tackles the problems related to the implementation of Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) or any other Energy concepts already endorsed by Local Authorities (LAs) in Alpine Space Area by supporting LAs in developing concrete actions with an inter-municipal approach.
The objectives will be reached by addressing the following topics:
- energy management,
- energy refurbishment of buildings and public light,
- local adaptation to climate change.
The outputs and experience gained will be spread out in the Alpine Space with an effective engagement campaign of new regions interested in developing the same approach, and with policy recommendation at EU level.
- drafting of energy audits for public buildings;
- legal assistance for drafting documents and for activating Energy Performance tender procedures financed by third parties;
- capitalizing experienced gained in line with the indications and provisions relevant to project Peace Alps
