NEKTEO

Nachhaltige Energie für Kommunen / Trajnostna energija za občine

As part of the NEKTEO project, cross-border tools for increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable forms of energy will be developed. It will improve the cross-border cooperation in the energy sector and contribute to achieving climate protection goals. In 4 work packages (T1-T4) tools will be developed which cause the following main outputs: empowerment of at least 34 energy officials in local authorities to improve cross-border cooperation and increase efficiency in the energy sector. Raising awareness of energy efficiency in local communities in the project area with the help of specially designed tools (cross-border network of 55 energy locations, cross-border NEKTEO Energy Efficiency Ambassador, bilingual energy efficiency education programs for target groups with the involvement of 34 pilot municipalities, language courses, visualised energy monitoring in 24 pilot municipalities from which energy efficiency plans are developed; annual cross-border energy efficiency competitions in the categories of community, community property and individual. Active involvement of at least 500 civil servants in an energy efficiency program with the goal of energy saving of 5% (starting point 2016). The project management is clearly conceptualised as nine 2-day coordination meetings for communication, implementation and quality control, timely reporting and billing as well as joint events. The aim of the project is to train the civil servants at municipal level or energy officials and subsequently the population in the pilot communities and thus to initiate awareness raising processes in the target group of the municipal administration and thus achieve energy savings. The cross-border know-how transfer is an important aspect because of the different starting points in both countries.
