Summary of the project

The project is giving the basis for making and improving capacities of local energy management by appointing the energy managers and establishing teams for identification and preparation of energy efficiency projects. Also, systematic monitoring of public sector energy efficiency indicators represents a necessary step towards the more efficient control of energy consumption. Through creation of Information System for Energy Management (ISEM), determining the current situation on municipal energy consumption, and gathering all relevant data, this objective will be achieved, and ultimately this will lead to decrease in energy consumption in participating municipalities. Beside this, through applying know how and models of the best practices and implementation of completely new software for energy performance contracting (EPC), partner municipalities will be strengthened to significantly cut down the energy losses and budget expenditures for this sector.  Raising the level of awareness in public and civil sector about significance, identification and implementation of energy efficiency measures is also part of project, identified as extremely important tool for the implementation of energy efficiency measures at local level.

Programme/Project objectives

Strengthening of the local authority capacities through establishing municipal energy management system and implementation of energy efficiency measures in order to contribute to decrease of the municipal budget expenditures for energy and environment protection.
