The County Administrative Board has requirements for its own operations to save energy. The government, the previous one, decided that all government agencies with more than ten employees must reduce their energy use. In Västmanland, it is about, among others, the County Administrative Board, Mälardalen University and the Employment Service.
– We as a government authority must set a good example, but the municipalities must also be able to do that, says Johan Sterte.
Energy advisors help
In their work, the municipalities partly focus on their own operations, but also work with private individuals, organizations and companies in the municipalities with advice regarding energy efficiency. A part municipalities have their own climate and energy advisers such as Hallstahammar and Västerås. Other cooperates with the Mälardalen Energy Officewhere they provide the service to the municipalities.
