General Information
Project will reinforce the work of national associations of energy agencies. Small or far located agencies are not always able to access to useful information from EU or to valuable knowledge of successful agency management issues from others.
Associations are useful tools to enhance communication between agencies, making them profit of the benefits of working together. The project works in the exchange of experience and synergy within the associations, specially to facilitate the agencies (through their associations) the knowledge of the best financing issues to make them economically-sustainable.
Each association will establish a national secretariat in their country. This will act as national co-coordinator of the project in the country, and as a contact for the rest of associations. The secretariat will gather the information and work developed in the country and spread the information, results, and products of the project to all their agencies.
The project will disseminate the results of this exchange of knowledge by a publication (best financing practices for agencies), e-newsletters, national & international workshops, and information services.
  • To reinforce the role of the National Associations of energy agencies or to establish the basis to create such associations in those countries where they do not exist.
