Guideline Manual for the Observation of GHG emissions (2011)

The GHG observation system is a powerful tool and the choices of a methodology and approach for implementing it are not neutral. In fact, they contribute strongly to building a representation of the regional impact of climate change and a framework for identifying areas of responsibilities and priorities for action.

GHG and energy observatory of Rhône-Alpes region (OREGES) – Key figures 2012 (edition February 2014)

The consumption of fossil energies, in France as in Rhône-Alpes, although it tends to decrease in favour of electricity, is still the largest, and accounts for 65% of the total final energy consumption. Greenhouse gas emissions are declining steadily since 2005 and in 2012, there are below the level of 1990 (-6%). The Rhône-Alpes region […]

CECILIA2050: Combining Policy Instruments to Achieve Europe’s 2050 Climate Targets

CECILIA2050 is about “Choosing Efficient Combinations of Policy Instruments for Low-carbon development and Innovation to Achieve Europe’s 2050 climate targets.” It is a three-year research project funded by the European Union’s 7th Framework Programme for Research (FP7).  

Measure and share data with utilities for the Covenant of Mayors

The Meshartility report on data sharing practices between energy suppliers and local authorities in Europe is based on an online survey that was conducted between November 2012 and August 2012, as well as on feedback gathered through a number of less formal information gathering interviews. The survey was directed at local authorities, their associations and […]

ENERGee Watch regional GHG & energy data (Dec. 2013)

ENERGee Watch is the European network of regional GHG emissions and energy data Observatories. This initiative derives from the INTERREG IVC project CLIMACT Regions which identified in 2012 more than 20 regional GHG and energy observatories, some of which decided to join forces in this platform to better share experiences and methodologies in monitoring. Monitoring […]

Rhone-Alpes GHG & Energy Observatory publishes Key Figures for 2010-11 (May 2013)

Created in 2002, OREGES is the Greenhouse gas and energy observatory of the Rhône-Alpes Region.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 […]

BioGrace project – Aligning GHG emission calculations in Europe

The BioGrace greenhouse gas (GHG) CALCULATION TOOL has been recognised as a voluntary scheme by the European Commission. It is in line with the sustainability criteria of the Renewable Energy Directive (2009/28/EC, RED) which are equally stated in the Fuel Quality Directive (2009/30/EC). The recognition is based on RED Article 18 (4-6) and refers to […]

Late lessons from early warnings: science, precaution, innovation

The 2013 Late lessons from early warnings report is the second of its type produced by the European Environment Agency (EEA) in collaboration with a broad range of external authors and peer reviewers. The case studies across both volumes of Late lessons from early warnings cover a diverse range of chemical and technological innovations, and highlight a number of systemic problems.
