ALEM, the Local Energy Agency of the pilot site Murcia (Spain), takes part in the SMARTSPACES project and provides Energy Decision Support and Awareness Service (EDSS) for all pilot buildings.

ALEM manages energy saving, energy efficiency and promotes renewable energy policies within the territory of the Municipality of Murcia.

The Murcia pilot site includes three public buildings:

  • the Murcia City Council building, built in 1846
  • the Central Police Station
  • Moneo, the annex to the City Council

ALEM also coordinates the Energy Management Services (EMS) in the buildings in order to implement actions focused on energy saving. The agency was in charge of selecting the ICT to be implemented, install the equipment in cooperation with professionals, measure the energy consumed previously and after the ICT implementation, and disseminate the advances achieved among the building staff and visitors so they can participate in the project too.
