More information



This project, led by Alba Iulia City Hall in Romania, aims to advance the sustainable development of Alba Iulia and its neighboring regions by implementing a 12-month initiative focused on raising awareness and knowledge regarding renewable energy, energy efficiency, and energy security. Through training and awareness events, the project seeks to empower the local community, including public entities, SMEs, and citizens, with the understanding and skills needed to embrace and implement energy-efficient practices. By fostering a culture of sustainability and reducing energy consumption, the project not only contributes to the immediate well-being of the community but also aligns with broader EU climate and energy objectives, ultimately enhancing the region''s long-term environmental and economic resilience.

The general objective of the project is to contribute to the sustainable development of Alba Iulia Municipality (AIM) by developing and implementing a series of training and awareness actions focused on increasing the knowledge of renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy security for the local community of Alba Iulia and proximity, during 12 months.

Achieving these targets requires a variety of key activities. These include:

- Training

- Project Management

- Project Publicity

- Arrangement of Green Demo Day Event


This project also enhances bilateral relations between Norway (the Donor State) and Romania (the Beneficiary State) by fostering a partnership between Norsk Energi as the Project Partner and Alba Iulia Municipality as the Project Promoter. Through a series of training sessions provided by Norsk Energi to municipal staff, local public entities, and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), as well as support for organizing the Green Demo Day and a study visit to Norway, the project boosts local knowledge in energy efficiency and management. This knowledge exchange directly strengthens the bilateral ties between Norway and Romania.
