The 2007 «Energy Policy for Europe» targets towards improving energy efficiency by 20% by 2020. The ANSWER project aims to contribute to this policy by reducing energy use. The project will promote the reduction of carbon emissions through increased energy efficiency amongst businesses and communities within the North Sea Region.
Priority: 4 – Promoting Sustainable and Competitive Communities
The project calls for promoting changes in practice by addressing attitudes and behaviour of businesses and societies, therefore leading to a reduction in energy use (and hence in carbon footprint). The project will develop a Climate Barometer Monitoring Tool which will be used to monitor and visualise the real time energy and climate performance of the participating communities and SMEs.
The project will develop ways to promote and increase energy efficient consumption patterns in:
– society, working with communities and businesses to engage and empower them to increase energy efficiency,
– Establish the partner regions as a centre of excellence for energy efficiency,
– Develop a Climate Barometer Monitoring Tool which will be used to monitor and visualise the real-time energy and climate performance of the participating communities and SMEs.
