The Midland Regional Authority and the Mid West Regional Authorities are partners in an Interreg IVC project STEP. The STEP project aims to improve the sustainable energy tools at local level. The project commenced in January 2012 and will run until December 2014. It will receive €1.2 million funding from the ERDF.

The objectives of the STEP project are:
- To create a set of regional good practices that may help to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions,
- To increase the amount of renewable energy consumed in project partners regions,
- To boost the implementation of policies that may contribute to achieving the EU objectives 20-20-20, and
- To support territorial cohesion among participant regions according to European policies on energy and climate change by promoting energy self-sufficiency and energy diversification.
In line with these objectives, the Irish partnership invite senior public sector personnel to a workshop entitled Energy Management in Public Bodies: Strategic Solutions to Resourcing Energy Management. The workshop will address Purchasing Energy Services; Successful progress and effective ESCO’s; Financing Retrofit and include a site visit to a retrofitted building with biomass boiler.
