ABOUT CitiEnGov

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.

The Project

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. 

General Objective

CitiEnGov aims to improve the capacity of public administrations to implement new energy planning strategies through a new comprehensive concept based on the: 

  • Acknowledgement of a political mandate for energy;
  • Definition of a working group with roles and activities;
  • Real horizontal service made of experts about energy issues enabling the efficient realisation of the foreseen actions and results.

Project Specific Objectives

  • Developing and Implementing integrated territorial plans to enhance the use of Renewable Energy Sources and improve energy performance.
  • Designing and testing concepts and tools to improve the energy management in Central EU urban areas.
  • Enhancing the definition of low-carbon energy strategies and policies tailor-made for the central EU urban areas.
