EU partnership search

The Local Energy Agency of Gorenjska (LEAG) is interested in cooperating in projects involving Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Rational Use of Energy (RUE).

PIC: 956501966

The LEAG was founded as a public institution by the Municipality of Kranj in 2009, and was co-financed by the European Commission programme Intelligent Energy Europe. We work in accordance with local and national programmes concerning RES and RUE. The agency offers consultation with municipalities and companies in the preparation of Local Energy Concepts, proposals for energy management and documents required by law. The LEAG assists local institutions in planning projects of RES and RUE. Our activities are directed towards raising public awareness in the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources as biomass, biogas, geothermal, solar and hydroelectric energy. Through seminars, workshops, conferences and our website, LEAG is helping to remove or reduce local obstacles to the implementation of RES and RUE. One of our main goals is the implementation of new technologies to save energy in companies and public buildings. 

Past or on-going projects relevant to the proposal:
  • IEE project Local Energy Agency of Gorenjska
  • Implementing energy bookkeeping with target monitoring in public buildings
  • Coordination of energy management projects with public authorities
  • Educational activities and promotion
