Wanted: Municipalities serious about reducing energy and water use
Join a savings initiative and save money in the process
Frankfurt, 31 January 2017. Climate Alliance is seeking cities and towns interested in improving the water and energy efficiency of their public buildings. By making use of smart metering to analyse and communicate electricity, gas and water data, local authorities can identify significant savings opportunities. These opportunities can lead to reductions in energy and water consumption by anywhere from 5 to 15%.
Leicester City Council (UK), Climate Alliance member city Nuremburg (Germany) and the region of Catalunya (Spain), have just completed a trial of a new system developed within the framework of the EU-funded Energy Data Innovation Network (EDI-Net) initiative and are ready to share their experience and expertise with 20 more local authorities interested in joining the initiative. These new pilot municipalities will not only be able to use the EDI-Net system free of charge, they will also get access to special online forum, a customised dashboard, a helpdesk and free training workshops. To be eligible, local authorities must be able to provide sub-hourly energy consumption data – local decision makers, financial planners, energy and climate managers are invited to express their interest.
