Local Energy Agency Pomurje (LEAP)
The Local Energy Agency Pomurje – LEA Pomurje is a regional organization that takes care to promote and facilitate continued improvement of energy efficiency and accelerated deployment of renewable energy sources in the region by seeking to maximize the local energy self-supply of the region. The establishment of the agency dates back to 2005 in the framework of an international consortium in the Intelligent Energy Europe.
We have a strong cooperation with all 27 municipalities in Pomurje region and we are part of the working group that prepared the Regional Development Programme of 2014- 2020. We have direct link to the »Development council of the Pomurje region« and »Council of Pomurje development region«. We are member of the "Regional Development Network of the Pomurje Region".
