Description:

In order to encourage the implementation of an active demand-side management policy, the Brussels-Capital Region backs, by call for proposals, the development of 3-year schemes for major building owners and real estate managers known as PLAGE (Plan Local dActions pour la Gestion Energetique). The programme has already supported 15 municipalities, 7 hospitals and 2 public housing managers, and the Brussels-Captial region school system. Building owners and managers participating in the programme agree to target the energy consumption of their buildings, and implement means to reduce consumption. Measures are accompanied by methodologies to ensure their success, and participants supported by an energy manager partialy  paid for by the regional government.

A "mandatory PLAGE" is under development.
