Title: Municipal energy awareness online
Municipalities in southern Moravia (Czech Republic) and northern Lower Austria are developing a model for an energy agency for the regions for the purpose of energy monitoring in municipal buildings using remote reading via internet for heat, electricity and water. This model, which has already been successfully introduced in buildings of the province of Lower Austria, is currently being transferred to municipal buildings and companies and will analyze energy-saving measures and prepare the data for the respective municipality. Beyond user motivation and the savings, an interchange of experience across borders plays a central role. Here the municipalities seek to make a contribution to climate and environmental protection. Management of energy data, improved energy utilization and better systems can return energy savings up to 50%.
