The main objective of the action, which is an example of a functional model of multilevel governance, is to provide independent technical capacity and expertise through the energy agency for a more effective energy planning on both municipal and regional level.
The Energy Agency of the Zlín Region (EAZK) has been carrying out a procurement process for purchasing bulk energy for the organisations established by the Zlín Region since 2007. Through the coordinated process, considerable results have been achieved, especially concerning savings on energy bills. Joint development process between the Zlín Region and the municipalities for purchasing bulk energy is the demonstration joint action to support development and implementation of local SEAPs.
