Project aim

The main aim of PEA is to foster regional development through reduction of energy related costs (evaluate energy consumption, use existing energy saving potentials, find and define new ways for energy saving), added value based on new value chains, and sustainable technological innovations.

Energy strategies, which positively affect the economic situation of the regions, are to be developed and implemented. For some of the partners our strategies will lead to establishing energy self-sufficient regions.

Already developed solutions will be collected, exchange, and translate them in order to make them usable for all partner regions – and beyond.

Training modules for energy related staff, users, and decision makers will be developed to create, deepen, and enhance knowledge. Thus, it is possible for them to further develop strategies and measures on their own.

A lot of actors are involved in energy related processes on a regional basis: besides municipalities these may be energy providers, plant operators, and of course consumers. These actors need to be included in the PEA’s work, in order to successfully re-orientate and create new profiles as energy regions. A network is to be built up between the municipalities and regions on the one hand and other actors, like energy providers, on the other hand, in order foster cross-sectoral interactive development. Working like this, it is possible to consider all relevant aspects when developing concepts and products related to an alternative use of energy and regional development.

To ensure a successful work on energy – and climate – related issues, a political top-down strategy is not sufficient. Thus, PEA aims at a joint work between different political levels (local, regional, national, and supranational) on the one hand and actors from the private energy sector (e.g. energy providers, but also other enterprises like the automobile industry etc.).

Regions and municipalities, their experiences and their strategies should be considered – especially by higher political levels – as an important source of creative solutions and approaches regarding energy related issues.
