ORECA – Observatoire Regional et Territorial Energie Climat Air de Bourgogne-Franche-Comte [FR]

ORECA is an observatory serving the energy and ecological transition of territories, coordinated by ALTERRE in partnership with Atmo Bourgogne-Franche-Comté.

The observatory is a tool for producing and disseminating knowledge, analysis and exchanges on atmospheric, energy and climate issues in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté.

It provides an overview of the energy situation, greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric pollutants, and summarises the major trends. It also sheds light on climate change and its effects, to better understand the need for adaptation.

The work of the observatory is part of a global approach to sustainable development: it takes into account the links with other environmental issues, and analyses the socio-economic impacts, for example in terms of fuel poverty or health.
