Oreges-may2015_XSCreated in 2002, OREGES Rhône-Alpes was set up in response to the desire to make available, on a regional and territorial basis, a relevant observation and information tool to members of the general public, local authorities and players in the world of energy.
Its steering committee is co-chaired by the State and the Region, and is financed by the regional Council of Rhône-Alpes and the ADEME (French environment and energy management agency).

The work is conducted by two technical organizations: Rhônalpénergie-Environnement since 2002 and AIR Rhône-Alpes since 2009. The OREGES was involved in the elaboration of the regional plan forair quality, climate change and energy (SRCAE), co-designed by the regional council and the regionalrepresentation of the national state, and officially approved in April 2014. The OREGESis in charge of monitoring the impacts of this regional plan.
