ARE Liguria, as determined by regional Law 22/2007, represents an operating instrument in the energy sector framework, subject to the authority of the Regional Administration in terms of general directives.
In particular ARE Liguria:
- cooperates with the Regional structures in the development of guidelines and technical standards in the energy field;
- collaborates with the Region in the implementation of initiatives, also at EU level, which may contribute to the objectives of the energy policy of the Liguria Region;
- performs technical and scientific consultancy activities for the Region in the field of energy performance in buildings;
- Manages, on behalf of the Region, the whole process of energy certification of buildings.
The Liguria Region has issued, in the field of energy efficiency, the Regional Law n. 22/2007, which allowed to implement the Directive 2002/91/UE and to start the process of energy certification of buildings in the Region, ahead of the publication of related National Guidelines.
In 2012 the Region, with the support of ARE Liguria, updated the current Regional regulations in order to implement Directive 2010/31/EU on the energy performance of buildings, entrusting ARE Liguria with the management of the process.
Summing up, the reasons for joining the project Marie are the experience gained during the implementation of the EU directives and the need to further update the legislation in order to introduce new instruments aimed at fostering energy saving and to transpose the Directive 2012/27/EU.
Are Liguria in the framework of Marie project coordinates pilot action PA 1.1 and author of Strategic Measure 4.1.
