Primes workshop in la spezia

The Province of La Spezia is the smallest of Liguria from the point of view of number of Municipalities (32) but almost all of them (31) are involved and committed to the CoM.

The workshop was an occasion to promote GPP in the energy sector as a key tool for the implementation of energy efficiency and energy savings and it was also an opportunity to involve the local CoM supporting structure, thus promoting the possibility of joint implementation of GPP interventions among all the Municipalities of the Province.

The Workshop was organized in a morning of work.
