In the early 1990s, the FEDARENE - European Federation of Agencies and Regions for Energy and the Environment - was created by 6 regional authorities (Rhône-Alpes, Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur, Wallonia, Basque Country, Aquitaine and Nord-Pas-de-Calais) who shared an ambition to adopt pro-active regional policies and joint actions for sustainable energy.

Indeed, regions are a governance level which offers high possibilities for targeted and adapted sustainable energy measures through a greater flexibility than national governments, the responsibility for many policy areas relating to energy (buildings, transport, industry), a thorough knowledge of the territories covered, proximity to citizens.

FEDARENE is now the premier European network of regional / local councils or energy agencies which facilitate energy and environment policies at the regional and local levels. A non-profit association, the network counts today more than 65 members from 18 EU and EEA countries.

The federation acts as a platform of best practice exchanges to foster replication, facilitates the development of inter-regional partnerships and EU projects, creates a counter-weight to national governments, lobbies for the regional dimension in EU energy policy debates with the EU Institutions, assists regions in developing their capacity to take action and in creating energy agencies.
