A study of NALAS Task Force Energy Efficiency in cooperation with NALAS member associations and GTZ Open Regional Fund Energy
NALAS is the Network of Associations of Local Authorities in South East Europe. It gathers approximately 4000 local authorities, directly elected by more than 80 million citizens of this region.
NALAS Task Force Energy Efficiency (TFEE) was established in 2008, as a response to the growing need for the improvement of Energy Efficiency (EE) and the more intensive utilization of Renewable Energies (RE) in South-East European municipalities.
Its objective is to coordinate member associations’ joint activities which are aiming at motivating and enabling municipalities for the development and implementation of their own EE/RE programs and projects.
A network-wide assessment of the needs and potentials for joint activities of the member associations promoting EE and RE at the local level was compiled within the framework of this study. A total of 13 member associations from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Turkey participated in the study group, which was working under the auspices of the TFEE. The member associations contributed to the study with their own local experts. GTZ Open Regional Fund Energy (ORF-E) provided financial and technical assistance.
