ALIenergy was established in 1999 by Argyll and Bute Council under the EU ‘SAVE’ programme. Part of a network of energy agencies across Europe, ALIenergy works to promote sustainable energy use and renewable energy generation, to address fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions.
ALIenergy is a facilitator, project manager and programme co-ordinator and it devises projects, educate, advise and improve access to knowledge and skills so that communities build capacity to participate in renewable energy and energy saving activity.
ALIenergy is at the interface between communities, economy and environment – ensuring that these three themes are integrated in all its projects and activities. Also, it provides the link between the strategic overview at European, national and regional levels and direct action locally.
A world where everyone lives sustainably, carbon emissions have been cut to safe levels and no individuals live in fuel poverty without access to affordable energy.
To improve public knowledge of, and engagement in, renewable energy and energy efficiency issues, so that more people take action in their lives to increase energy saving, become involved with renewable energy initiatives and move towards a sustainable, low carbon future.
To promote sustainable energy use and generation to the benefit of individuals, communities and the local economy, and to combat fuel poverty.
