Interregional PRINCIP project

Municipalities and regions worldwide, including the Kattegat-Skagerrak region, face major challenges to reduce CO2 emissions. The project tries to make a bid to reduce CO2 emissions through the Climate smart energy solutions. It's a good idea for municipalities and regions to work across often pretty ingrained administrative boundaries. 

“PRINCIP” means Proactive and Integrated Climate Change in resource planning. It aims to identify what the gain would be by working with energy efficiency measures in the form of reduced energy consumption. The project will deliver proposals for a vision, identify specific barriers and develop specific climate and energy plans for municipalities and regions. 

Worldwide Municipalities and regions, including the Kattegat-Skagerrak region, face major challenges to reduce CO2 emissions. The project is trying to come up with ideas about reducing CO2 emissions through climate smart energy solutions. That is the reason why project “PRINCIP”was created. 

During the project from January 2010 until the end of 2012, PRINCIP gathered best practices from municipalities and regions in the Kattegat / Skagerrak area to compile an inspirational and activity catalog. 

The project includes Swedish, Norwegian and Danish partners, who are involved in the project's realization. AAU, Aalborg Municipality, Morso Business Council and Energy City Frederikshavn are the Danish project partners. The project budget is DKK 10 million. 

The project includes a variety of activities such as conferences, seminars and workshops, held alternately in Denmark and Sweden. Activities are reported to the supervisor (Aalborg Municipality) every half year.
