The Regional Energy Observatory in the Zlin Region was established by the Council of the Zlin Region on 13th July 2015 as the Zlin Region Energy Monitoring Centre.

The monitoring centre is operated as a part of the Energy Agency of the Zlin Region (EAZK). Institutionalisation of the monitoring centre and defining its structure, long term goals and specific targets lead to the improvement and development of energy management in towns and municipalities within the Zlin Region. The monitoring centre is an official tool, through which it is possible to monitor and more effectively implement the Energy Concept of the Zlin Region, regional SEAP and SEAPs of particular municipalities.

 

The creation of the Zlin Region Energy Monitoring Centre is a logical step following previous DATA4ACTION project activities, especially:

  • Detailed review and sharing of other European projects’ experiences
  • Reviewing current situation in the Zlin Region as well as in the whole Czech Republic region and country
  • Setting up a Regional Steering Committee in the Zlin Region
  • Peer learning activities carried out between DATA4ACTION partners with different level of implementation of collaboration models

Main Results

Energy Agency of the Zlin Region signed the first collaboration with E.ON (energy data provider) on 17th August 2015. Partners expressed interest in improving the
environment by pursuing energy savings, reduction of harmful emissions and contribution to improving the quality of life in the region. The aim is to establish the cooperation between the partners through the exchange of data on energy consumptions, ways of heating, intention and factors influencing energy consumption and thus pollution. Concrete date will be obtained upon the list of consumers with the approval of these consumers for EAZK to dispose with the data on:

  • Heating
  • Lightning
  • Energy consumption of specific technological processes of particular consumer

EAZK will continue in signing collaboration agreements both with data providers and municipalities. There are several subjects foreseen to be signed the collaboration agreements within the upcoming year, among them:

  • CHP Valašské Meziříčí (data provider)
  • CHP Otrokovice (data provider)
