Ruralnet Futures can announce a partnership agreement with air quality and climate change consultants Aether. Having recently been successful in jointly securing a contract with Worcestershire County Council to deliver the EU approved carbon accounting software ECORegion, both organisations look forward to working with Worcestershire County Council and their partners to help address their climate change commitments.
Ruralnet Futures are the UK partner for the ECORegion software, whilst Aether bring a wealth of expertise with regards to emission inventories, environmental data systems and air quality assessments – creating a powerful partnership. ECORegion is a widely deployed solution for efficient energy and greenhouse gas balancing for cities and municipalities. The European Commission said of the tool “We acknowledge that there is a high analogy and good convergence between the ECORegion and the Covenant [of Mayors]. We are also pleased to note that a specific output of the ECOregion tool has been developed, which can be used to fill in the Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) template….Similarly, the Covenant of Mayors will inform about the outstanding position of the ECORegion tool” – European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy
A key project deliverable is to deliver sophisticated scenario modelling functionality, enabling Worcestershire to establish what impact policy decisions will have on carbon emissions in future years. If you would like to learn more about the project please contact us.
