INTENSSS-PA supports public authorities to integrate the energy theme into spatial planning and regional physical and socioeconomic landscapes.
Involving stakeholders through seven Regional Living Labs
To achieve the objective INTENSSS-PA will provide human and institutional capacity building to public authorities and to the wider network of private and public actors related to energy and regional planning by implementing the Living Lab concept.
Specifically, the project develops a network of seven Regional Living Labs (RLL), one in each of the seven Regional areas participating in the project.
Designing and applying an Integrated Energy Planning Concept
The RLLs are focused on improving and designing a shared and integrated sustainable energy planning concept and on applying it in order to develop seven sustainable energy plans, i.e. one for each Region. The overall approach involves learning sessions and experiential projects alongside intense networking.
Communication and exploitation activities are envisaged including national Roadshows and a survey among policy makers. It is expected that over 200 people participate in the capacity-building activities performed within the RLL’s network, while the stakeholders and policy makers informed on the project results and activities will exceed 1000 individuals.
