ManagEnergy is a European Commission initiative dedicated to local and regional energy agencies. It helps them to increase sustainable energy investments in regions and cities across Europe.
As project developers, aggregators, and facilitators for public authorities, energy agencies are in a unique position to support the transition to a sustainable energy future for their regions and cities. ManagEnergy provides information, know-how, visibility and networking opportunities to support the agencies in contributing to Europe’s climate and energy goals.
From 2017 to 2020 the initiative has a strong focus on sustainable energy investments. Master classes, expert missions, and events are just some of the means being used to raise the skills in energy efficiency, financing and project development of agency staff, allowing them to make decisions on local and regional energy investments with confidence.
The initiative was launched by the European Commission in 2002 to support local and regional energy agencies, many of which have been created thanks to the support of the EU's Intelligent Energy Europe programme.
