Official launch of the ENERGee Watch projet

Energee watch has now received funding under the H2020 programme to launch a peer to peer learning program to enable regional and local authorities to timely and accurately define, monitor and verify their sustainable actions.

Its objectives are:

  • To develop and execute a complete and easily replicable peer-to-peer learning program
  • To build capacity of regional authorities in monitoring and verification practices for adaptation and mitigation actions through peer-to-peer learning activities
  • To help public authorities and their agencies use the rich experience available
  • To link regional authorities and their respective associations along with energy policymakers, associations of planners, technical experts, monitoring, verification, reporting (MRV) experts, and local actors in an intra-European network through an innovative peer-to-peer learning experience about local and regional MRV practices for both adaptation and mitigation policies


The peer learning programme will start in 2021 and will address four topics

  • Energy and Climate Data collection
  • Monitoring, Reporting, Verification
  • Indicators and planning for climate adaptation
  • Data display, dissemination and validation by end-users

Building on the IEE Data4action project and on the Energee Watch network of observatories, the project will run from September 2020 to August 2023

Stay tuned !
