AE3R intends to promote the need for reduced energy consumption and the importance of generating energy from renewable sources through organizing seminars, conferences and exhibitions. By monitoring the energy consumption and by evaluating the renewable energy potential of our region we will be able to better support the local authorities or the companies interested in implementing programs that reduce the energy consumption or that generate energy from renewable sources. Along with the monitoring of the energy consumption we will perform energy audits for buildings and we will issue the Performance Energy Certificate. Another important objective for us is to make sure that the national legislation is harmonized with the European Community legislation. For this purpose we will attract new members, companies and institutions with activities in the energy field and we will issue a periodic newsletter.
