ANERGO Energy Observatory (www.anergo.alea.ro) 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
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.
The observatory is monitoring:
1. Final Energy consumptions at county level
One of ANERGO’s key missions is setting-up an initial baseline consumptions inventory BEI for the year 2008 to be used as reference (baseline) for the SEAPs of Local Authorities that have signed an agreement with the observatory. This implies collaborations with the Local Authorities and the Energy Data Providers to define and enhance the templates of required energy data. ANERGO has signed collaboration agreements with the main electricity distributor and other key Energy Data Providers in the region.
2. Energy production from renewable sources
The energy production data is collected through figures provided by the Local Energy Data Providers. The production of energy is being taken into consideration when calculating the total GHG emissions at municipal level which is very important for the Sustainable Energy Action Plans of LAs.
The main long-term objectives of the observatory are:
