REACHES project will capacitate the tourism actors to know and manage their energy consumption profiles, as a fundamental tool for identifying requirements, planning interventions, investing and assessing efficient solutions for performance comparison and, therefore, contributing for successful energy efficiency solutions' implementation, comprising the following operational objectives:
1 - Provide managers and technicians responsible for operation and maintenance of equipment, with energy management principles that can lead to behaviour change, operation modes and decisions that will allow the use of tourism infra-structures in a more energy-efficient way.
2 - Enhance managers and technicians' competencies for efficient energy monitoring, through the implementation and application of methodologies and indicators for data collection and treatment based on current best practice, facilitating transparency in relation to energy and resources’ data security and liability (monitored by the Report on the REACHES regions' baseline, indicators, targets and strategies for monitoring CO2 emissions).
3 - To support the tourism sector in the development of “Tourism Energy Observatories”.
4 - Enhance hotel managers' capacity to make informed decisions, improving procurement techniques and stimulating innovative market transformation.
