Implemented by: Energy Agency of the Zlín Region
The Energy Agency of the Zlín Region (EAZK) has been carrying out a procurement process for purchasing bulk energy for the organisations established by the Zlín Region since 2007. Through the coordinated process, considerable results have been achieved, especially concerning savings on energy bills. This action is the example of a functional model of multilevel governance, in which a region provides independent technical capacity and expertise through its own organisation (energy agency), and municipalities provide their technical and energy data suitable for monitoring and more effective energy planning on both municipal and regional level. As a directly measured impact, the model of the joint procurement for purchasing bulk energy generates considerable savings suitable for further investments to the energy efficiency or RES development on both regional and municipal level.
