Puglia Region looks towards 2020 direction with Alterenergy Project

Alterenergy project (Energy Sustainability for Adriatic small communities) invites all the Apulian municipalities with less than 10.000 inhabitants (Istat data January 1st 2010) to respond to a public call for the submission of expressions of interest (deadline: March 11th, 2013). The project aims to develop replicable models of sustainable management of energy resources in small Adriatic municipalities.

“The project leader Puglia Region – explained the regional councilor Silvia Godelli (Mediterranean, Culture and Tourism) during the Info Day at Cineporto in Bari - will select a leader municipality in energy sustainability for hosting targeted interventions amounting to more than 2 million Euros. This activity is a key one, considering that we’re on the eve of the new phase of the European Programming 2014-2020 and of the defining of the Adriatic-Ionian Macro-Region Strategy".

The regional councilor Angela Barbanente (Space Planning) added that the interventions tailored for small communities – providing them with technical, managerial and practical abilities of energy planning and showing the related environmental and economic benefits – represent a winning strategy, mainly considering that they represent the most common urban settlements in the whole Adriatic Area.

“The project can give an important contribution in this direction - underlined Giuliana Trisorio Liuzzi, ARTI Puglia President – because it focuses on the small local municipalities which can best test the changes that citizens are waiting for, with an important social and economic impact”.

“For the whole project, 12.5 Million Euro total budget are at stake, and are funded within the cross-border Cooperation Programme IPA-Adriatic 2007-2013” pointed out Bernardo Notarangelo, Director of Puglia Region – Mediterranean Department. The Project Coordinator Claudio Polignano explained how took place the process of creating a partnership of 18 institutions operating in the Energy sector in Italy (all Adriatic regions), Albania, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia.

To mayors, councilors and municipal administration consultants who were present during the Info Day, the ARTI Puglia experts Giuseppe Creanza and Carlo Gadaleta Caldarola illustrated the activities that Puglia Region will carry out between 2013 and 2015 in the selected municipality, amounting to more than € 2 million, and the methods of application and testing of the foreseen interventions.
