The shared energy advice service consists in offering the service of energy specialists to small municipalities from the Rhône-Alpes region.
In the framework of the shared energy advice service, different organisations such as associations, local authorities in charge of energy supply and associations of local authorities provide energy management assistance and guidance to municipalities. This guidance takes the form of advice and monitoring in several fields: energy consumption, tools efficiency and financing methods. RAEE is in charge of the coordination and the development of the shared energy advice network in Rhône-Alpes since 2011. This service already records a high number of interested municipalities (more than 640 in 2015), and will be expanded throughout the region.
