Capitalisation of Enerscapes project is highly context-based: in the final meeting, partners discussed each other the opportunities related to Enerscapes project in its own pilot-area. Local Action Plans will be integrated in local and regional planning activities, together with territorial analysis and scenario assessment.

During the project, partners elaborated a GIS on RES and landscape values, that will be updated in order to support planning activities at local level. For example, in Andalucia the results of territorial analysis will be included in the open access SSIAL (System of shared information on andalusian landscape) and into the Environmental Information Network of Andalusia (REDIAM).

In perspective, the GIS system can be extended at regional, national and also at EU level, creating an integrated database able to monitor landscape changes related to RES development.

Moreover, the results of participative activities will last after the end of the project and they will reinforce the acitivities of local governance. The Province of Vercelli and the University of Maribor cooperated with the regional level regarding landscape planning, also in the view of the next phase of Regional Development Programme, 2014-2020. Municipality of Almyros and the Region of Thessaly established contacts with the National Landscape Committee.

In French pilot-areas, during Enerscapes project several groups of people were involved, and the awareness regarding the possibility to take part in energy and landscape planning will support other participative planning initiatives in the future.

Enerscapes methodology can also be easily integrated in the Covenant of Mayors, the mainstream European movement involving EU local authorities for energy sustainability, as activated by CEA in Cyprus.

Moreover, MIEMA and CEA will capitalise Enerscapes project mainly through the MED Capitalisation Project MER - Governance and Marketing for Industrial Areas, aiming to make green marketing a tool for integrated governance of industrial areas. The overall objective is to improve the competitiveness and attractiveness of the  MED area according to Europe 2020 targets for a sustainable growth.



MER logoOn Wednesday, 10th July, the Malta Intelligent Energy Management Agency (MIEMA) will be launching a new EU-funded MED Capitalization project called MER – Governance and Marketing for Industrial Areas. The event, consisting of a seminar and press conference, will start at 9.30 a.m. at the Corinthia Marina Hotel in St Julians. 

The conference will be addressed by the Hon. Dr Konrad Mizzi, Minister for Energy and the Conservation of Water, Dr Marino Cavallo, representing the Province of Bologna (MER Project Lead Partner), Prof. Alfredo Valentino of the LUISS University of Rome, Dr Euridice Cristo of Algarve University, Dr Stefano Mugnoz, from U-space and Roma 3 University, as well as representatives of the project partners and experts. 

This Territorial Cooperation project aims at establishing a “network of networks” where to share experience and identify good practices which may be replicated to produce a European action plan, suitable to influence new policies towards a more sustainable development. MIEMA will also be hosting the kick-off meeting of the project, being held on Tuesday, 9th July.

The MER project is led by the Province of Bologna and includes other partners from Italy (ENEA – Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, and Informest – Service and Documentation Centre for International Economic Cooperation), Spain (FVMP – Valencian Federation of Municipalities and Provinces, and CEEI – Valencia Business and Innovation Centre), France (Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Nice Cote d’Azur), Greece (Anatoliki S.A.), Portugal (CRIA – Algarve University), Slovenia (Urban Planning Institute) and Cyprus (CEA – Energy Agency).
