Newsletter n°1 - 2016

Dear Reader,

Municipalities join efforts for sustainable and concrete energy solutions - this is the slogan chosen by the PEACE_Alps team during the project’s kick-off meeting in Kranj in April 2016. Meanwhile we have explored the core objectives of Energy Action Plans in our regions and have started the bottom up input of municipalities and main stakeholders.

Join us here and get to know the results of our surveys and activities.

Please be invited to a subscription of our bi-annual newsletter.
