Created in 2014 through the merger of three regional technical companies, IRE works in the infrastructure, construction, urban renewal and energy sectors.
The Energy Division (formerly the Agenzia regionale per l’Energia) supports the regional authority and municipalities in elaborating and implementing energy plans. It develops plans and projects to promote renewable energy sources and manages a consortium that purchases electricity on the free market. It works specifically on building energy performance and audits and is responsible for drafting the regional building energy certification regulations.
It manages energy data in the regional information system, established a global service contract monitoring and control system for energy and infrastructure projects for the entire Liguria hospital network, offers energy training and information services and has extensive experience in European financing.
IRE is the vice president of FEDARENE (European Federation of Agencies and Regions for Energy and the Environment) and RENAEL (Rete Nazionale delle Agenzie Energetiche Locali).
