CitiEnGov has been presented during an important event in Slovenia by GOLEA.
A restricted CitiEnGov technical meeting will take place in the City of Grodzisk on 2nd March 2017.
CitiEnGov will join the Italian initiative "M'illumino di Meno" - the invitation to turn off the lights in squares, private and public lightings on the 24th of February, as symbol for energy saving.
Hajdú-Bihar County Government organized an Energy Café in Debrecen as part of the CitiEnGov project. Svetits Catholic School was the venue of the programme.
Energy Café has been launched on 04.01.2017. It will be located in the City Hall in Nova Gorica and will be opened to visitors for energy advices and a cup of coffee.
Priority: Cooperating on low-carbon strategies in CENTRAL EUROPE
Priority Specific Objective: To improve territorial based low-carbon energy planning strategies and policies supporting climate change mitigation.
Project result: The improvement of public authorities capacities to define and implement low carbon energy planning and strategies. Seven pilot actions will be tested in seven countries, targeted to citizens, schools and municipalities.
Energy is a horizontal policy issue which influences directly or indirectly all other policy areas and consequently the whole socio-economic system. Given this assumption, (urban) public authorities play a key role as "facilitators” of the energy transformation process. They should coordinate approaches to formulate and plan low-carbon energy strategies. To achieve this, cities should set up energy units or empower those already established, mainly by providing them with tools and strategies but also giving them an effective role within the public administration.
The key to success is a weaving together of individual low carbon energy strategies, creating an integrated framework of policies and programmes.
CitiEnGov aims to improve the capacity of public administrations to implement new energy planning strategies through a new comprehensive concept based on the:
