After a successful previous stint working the EU ManagEnergy initiative, FEDARENE is delighted to announce that it is once again involved in the 2022-2026 consortium, alongside its members REGEA, OÖ Energiesparverband, Tipperary Energy Agency, B&SU, EnerGAP, AURA-EE, and ESCAN. The initiative is led by the Technological University of the Shannon, and also involves Akaryon as IT expert.
ManagEnergy is a European Commission initiative dedicated to regional and local energy agencies with the objectives of assisting them in becoming leaders in the energy transition and increasing sustainable energy investments in regions and cities.
The ManagEnergy initiative is based on the idea that energy agencies are in a unique position to facilitate sustainable energy investments in Europe, but also to support the development and implementation of concrete projects at local/regional level and trigger innovation.
Over the years 2017-2020, the initiative delivered outstanding results, with a unique combination of capacity-building and networking activities, involving one-fourth of the 350 European energy agencies in 25 EU countries. The ManagEnergy Publishable Report 2017 – 2020 describes in detail all the activities performed and how it helped energy agencies lead the Energy Transition.
The 2022-2026 work programme aims to build on these achievements, and further support the role of energy agencies by providing information, know-how, visibility and networking opportunities.
During the next four years, partners will carry out 12 Master Classes, 28 Expert Missions, 7 Work Shadowing Schemes, 4 ManagEnergy Talks and 8 Online Seminars.
While Master Classes, Expert Missions and ManagEnergy Talks were already included in the previous offer and made the success of the initiative, the Work Shadowing Schemes and Online Seminars are novelties.
The first activities will soon be launched, including our Energy Agencies survey so stay tuned!
