Data4Action

ANERGO LOGO_full_500ANERGO Energy Observatory is a newly created observatory trough the European project DATA4ACTION. Alba Local Energy Agency – ALEA, as a project partner, has started the observatory operation as an internal structure. Initially the observatory will provide its services for the Local Authorities from Alba County with the possibility to expand its services in the surrounding counties in the future.
Our key targets are

  • Elaborating public energy consumption reports on annual basis, containing averages of energy consumption trends and prices, BEI & MEI reports for local authorities compatible with Covenant of Mayors, renewable energy production, comparisons and analysis
  • Contribute to an overall decrease of greenhouse gas emissions in the region and promotion of renewable energy production for municipalities and promoting energy efficiency advices for individual consumers (citizens)

The management of the observatory is based on the Regional Steering Committee, whose members can provide useful directions for the observatory operation as they represent Regional and Local Authorities, Energy Data Providers and Energy Facilitators.

Climate Alliance EcoRegion software tool, EU

The tool is intended to provide municipalities and regions with a basis to establish their CO2 profile and assess their local and regional climate strategies. It is based on software called ECORegionsmart specifically developed by the Swiss company Ecospeed for computing local CO2 and energy balances.It can be ordered online and used immediately as an internet service. After a small amount of data has been entered, ECORegion calculates a first initial balance, using default values from a database built on national statistical data with some computing added. The computations use factors like fleet average consumption, emission factors, etc.
