The Energikontoret Jamtland, the energy agency of Jämtland County, was established in 1999 thanks to an initiative of the Swedish Energy Agency and municipalities in the county of Jämtland. Since the foundation, its main priority has been making efforts to improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energy. More specifically, the agency carried out several projects aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Its activities is addressed to a wide target audience including owners of family houses, blocks and commercial buildings, companies working in the wood pellets sector and public authorities belonging to Municipalities, the County Council as well as the Council Administration.
The added value of European Union’s financial programmes is made tangible through local and regional initiatives. Local and regional initiatives show the cohesion policy is both a catalyst for investment and a means for beneficiaries to raise their ambitions and take ownership of the European objectives, and specifically the ones of the Energy Union.
