Tartu Regional Energy Agency (TREA) has been established in 2009 by Tartu City Government and Tartu Science Park to implement efficient energy management methodologies and practices in Tartu region. TREA as partner is providing an independent energy advocacy for the region from citizens to SME-s, from households level to municipality or regional level.
TREA is also the first energy management agency in Estonia. As a widely used agency-model, it also represents a modern European approach for local energy management. On the other hand, it also represents local energy development at national and EU level. An important part of that work is representing the region in national and international cooperation networks and projects that are dealing with relevant issues.
Tartu Regional Energy Agency’s target area (so called region) is South Estonia, but agency is acting nationwide, on whole territory of Estonia.
