IMEAS
Integrated and Multi-level Energy models for the Alpine Space

Outcomes

Overview

The future energy system in the Alpine region relies on sustainable low carbon energy planning in order to mitigate climate change. However, managing the transition to sustainable energy plans holds many challenges for all governance levels. That is why the interdisciplinary project team of IMEAS developed a methodology and practical guidance for the creation and integration of roadmaps based on multi-level approaches connecting actors from different economic sectors, governance levels, territories and countries. IMEAS created the online platform www.imeas.eu to share tools and experience to support successful low-carbon energy transition strategies. This can help to make the Alpine Space an exemplary model for energy efficiency and renewable energy in the European Union.

                                                  This publication aims to be a guide to drive policy makers, research bodies, private and public organizations, to understand the joint mechanisms that occur among actors in a multi-level dimension of governance, to implement actions and policies related to the energy transition. In times of large opportunities made possible by advanced and cheaper technology solutions, the innovation stream is usually blocked by non-technological problems such as missing incentive alignments and poor information flow amongst actors. In fact, these actors cannot make a difference if policies or strategies are fragmented at different institutional levels of implementation or if the objectives are not harmonized - or even missing - at some levels and in case of lack of communication among actors. The document describes the engagement and stakeholder analysis methodology developed and used in the IMEAS project, starting from low-carbon real initiatives identified and developed within the Alpine Space by each organization involved in the partnership.
