Territorial energy system are urged to define energy transition strategies. Energy transition poses several challenges, and needs coordinated actions and deep understanding of actual conditions. An example of cross-border agreement is the European macro-regional strategy for the Alpine region, aiming to become a model region for energy efficiency and renewable energy. This study supports policy-makers by providing a first picture of the energy balance of the EUSALP area and an overview on the local energy targets. Data has been retrieved by a bottom-up approach via an on-line semi-structured questionnaire. We found that the EUSALP region is a front runner in renewable electricity production. Interestingly, a great variety emerges in local energy targets, as well as in local share of renewables. We suggest to develop a harmonized data collection methodology in order to enable standardization in data analysis and monitoring. The study concludes that reliable and updated knowledge is needed to support and legitimate cross-border energy strategies design and implementation, in order for EUSALP to take a leading role in the smart energy transition.
