Energy planning at local levelThe main objective of the project is to promote energy planning at local level by sharing a common methodology among Participant Partners. This is essential to address climate change, as energy use is mainly responsible for it.
Mitigation and AdaptationLocal Authorities play a key role in the mitigation process, but as generally acquired, mitigation is not sufficient since climate change is already taking place. Therefore adaptative measures must be considered as well. The two options approach (mitigation and adaptation) in the energy planning process is thus essential. Following this principle, an ad hoc methodology for drafting Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAP) in Alpine Space Area (ASA) will be created, promoted and implemented.
Capacity buildingDuring the project, participant partners will improve their own skills thanks to a capacity building process which will enhance their effectiveness in supporting Local Authorities. Furthermore, an Action Plan for Public Private Investment methodology in the Alpine Space Area (ASA) shall be developed and several of these action plans will be drafted as pilot actions.
