With its unique geographical and structural characteristics, the Alpine Region has a good potential to transform into a model region for energy efficiency and renewable energy. Also, reliable energy data is indispensable for decision-makers to formulate, implement and verify the effectiveness of energy policies and measures. At the macro-regional level energy data can support the implementation and monitoring of a long-term cross-border energy strategy for the Alpine Region. The implementation of the observatory project requires networking a series of actors. As a first step, EUSALP Action Group 9 organizes a series of workshops with energy data experts to exploit the feasibility of a future EUSALP Energy Observatory. Experts on energy data collection come from the JRC and from EUSALP regions in France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Slovenia. The initiative is supported by the Tyrolean EUSALP Presidency 2018 and organized as an European Energy Day in the frame of the European Sustainable Energy Week 2018 EUSEW.
The agenda will be published soon.
