The overall objective of “Regenergy – Network of Pioneering Communities and Regions Working on Innovative Heat Energy Solutions” is to contribute to a secure, environmentally sound, and affordable provision of heat energy. Partners from ten countries aim at creating an interregional support and information network of regional and local authorities, utilities, universities, energy agencies, and regional development agencies to promote the exchange of experiences and to identify, disseminate and encourage best practices in core areas such as innovative policy approaches and financing.

LEI activities in the Project

LEI supports the capacities of municipal and regional decision-makers to promote energy efficiency and security of supply of heat energy. It provides dissemination of practical information, supports authorities in the identification of investment potentials in heating systems, in the diversification of energy sources, and in the development of projects eligible under EU Structural Funds. In the long run, the operation promotes energy efficiency and a more effective use of Structural Funds and contributes to regional development and the mitigation of social disparities. Activities include policy assessments and the elaboration of policy and methodological guidelines for municipal decision-makers. LEI also collect and document good practice cases, develop a financial evaluation framework and make concrete proposals for projects and financing possibilities.
