Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE)

The project focus on Municipalities that usually are one of the largest employers in cities and therefore any solutions stimulating behavioral change to foster energy efficiency and the rational use of energy resources amongst their employees at work and in their homes can have a significant contribution to sustainable consumption and energy savings in the cities of Europe.


(b) Major outputs & expected results

Outputs

The purpose of the TARE-UME is the implementation of actions and proven best practices for reducing energy consumption in the urban environment, with emphasis on municipal buildings and houses of their employees, through the implementation of actions to mobilise employees, the local government, businesses and bodies.

By ensuring a shared public commitment of key actors in Municipalities TARE-UME intends to:

Identify the Key Local Actors for implementing energy savings in Municipalities and investigate opportunities to support municipalitiesʼ employees on reducing the energy they use both at work and in their homes. 
Provide examples on how good practices in energy efficiency measures applied at Municipalities premises can be transferred to employeesʼ houses.  
Demonstrate in a simple and understandable way the environmental and economic benefits when purchasing less energy intensive goods
Motivate employees to support municipalityʼs efforts to meet its targets in energy savings.
Provide the technical and scientific support to Municipalityʼs employees to adopt energy saving measures both at work and in their homes.
Provide to Municipalities key information of the energy used in its premises.


Expected Results:

Raise awareness among municipality employees in energy efficiency and rational use of energy resources focused mainly on how to implement such solutions in practice at work and in their homes.  

Raise the confidence of municipality employees in EU energy labels and ecodesign requirements, and to empower them with the knowledge to act in their own interest when purchasing and operating energy-related products.
