Within the Data4Action project, 4 Regional Energy Observatories: Oreges Rhône Alpes (FR), Energieluppen of Norbotten(SE), Ligurian Energy and Environment Observatory (IT) & Climate Observatory Nord-Pas de Calais (FR) have supported the creation of 6 new ones in Alba (RO), Carkow Kilkenny (IE), Torino (IT), Plovdiv (BG), Zlin (CZ), Kent (UK) and Greece.
The regional observatories are powerful tool for implementing efficient strategies at the local level. Most of the structures are governed by a local consortium gathering at least several public authorities and energy data suppliers. They are very often supported by public authorities and integrated within existing regional organizations such as energy agencies or public department. The added value of this kind of structure is its high level of technical skills in data gathering and analysis, and in energy planning
