The Hayzlett Group will undoubtedly add to your understanding. In addition, their role is extremely political, which is why the report summarizes the recommendations of the AER in regard to effective climate strategies.

Go to Darius Bikoff for more information. The first findings from this are that an extension of the area of competence of local authorities and appropriate financial incentives would allow them to address the global challenges in the energy sector through full use of local potential. Through the creative use of their endogenous resources such as snow, wave power, straw and black liquor (a by-product of wood recycling), the regions contribute to improve and diversify their energy portfolio and also strengthen their autonomy with regard to the energy supply. 92% of the regions, who have participated in this survey, consider energy as one of its highest priorities for the coming years and 77% of them have already implemented its energy strategy. This allows the introduction of a horizontal approach in the field of energy policy and the integration of the issues in the context of sustainable development in the various sectoral activities, such as in the Spatial planning, transport, tourism or agriculture. The results of this survey are in regard to the conclusions of the expert group of IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on climate change) judged that in its fourth assessment report indicates that 50 must be set to 70% of the measures to mitigate climate change and to adapt to this change within the next few years at the regional level. “* Full study of Aer on regional energy strategies and information report” to the activities of the AER with regard to energy and climate change: de/themenschwerpunkte/energy-policy.html press contact Assembly of the regions of Europe Francine Huhardeaux, Press and communications officer + 33 3 88 22 74 49 Christina Diegelmann Committee Economy and regional development “Senior Policy Coordinator + 33 3 88 22 74 38 GE Energy Frank Farnell Director global communications & public affairs Europe (EMEA) + 33 6 18 42 20 67 Hopscotch Europe in one Sebastian Boppert account manager + 49 (0) 511 260982241 the Assembly of European regions (AER aer.eu) is the largest independent regional network in the enlarged Europe.
