The PentaHelix project is focusing on developing and testing a new approach for integrating multi-governace planning for
sustainable energy, both horisontal and vertical, togeheter with a close interaction with key stakeholders in energy efficiency
and sustaianble energy solutions such as the industry and business, building sector, NGO's, academia and individual
citizens or relevant associations. The project aims at developing a peer-to-peer online platform for SECAP development that
can be used for multiple public authorities in joint planning and implementation. This will enable the integration of different
administrative levels and geographical planning areas as well as enhance the cost efficiency in the entire planning and
implementation process based on economic of scale and closer cooperation and exchange. In addition regional PentaHelix
Task forces will be established, involving key stakeholder and target groups, that will serve as a driver for a wider scope of
the SECAPs as well as bringing in valuable insights and identification of potential measures, system solutions and a better
understanding of drivers and barriers for a more sustainable society as a whole, in each specific region.
This PentaHelix approach will be developed and tested in 8 pilot municipalities in Norway, Croatia, Belgium, Spain and Latvia. Each region is unique in terms of demography, economy, urban development, climate conditions and industrial/
businesss structure. Together these pilot areas consititutes a large number of inhabitants and potential mitigation of CO2
and energy savings. To further enhance the impact of the project a broad replication and dissemination strategy and actions
will be rolled out in many countries in the EU. This will be mainly carried out towards neighboring regions as well as the
network of ERRIN with it's many member organisations. Targeted dissemination actions will be implemented.
11 partners from 5 countries will do this during 36 months.
