The European Network of Regional GHG Emissions and Energy Watch-ENERGee-Watch
Category: Methods and tools
Description:

ENERGee-Watch, the European Network of Regional GHG Emissions and Energy Watch was launched in the framework of the INTERREG IVC project ClimactRegions.
ENERGee-Watch aims at enabling regions to efficiently monitor and observe greenhouse gases in order to develop regional policies for greenhouse gas mitigation using good governance processes.

The European Network of Regional GHG Emissions and Energy Watch - ENERGee-Watch is a place for exchanging and providing different stakeholders with methodological and observation tools aimed at assisting the elaboration of balance sheets and data dissemination. It will also strengthen the quality of the works of observation at the regional level in Europe, and support the policy makers in their decision-making process.

During the initial phase of the network and until the creation of an official organisation, FEDARENE will be in charge of the coordination and the animation of the ENERGeeWATCH network.
