Financing local climate & energy actions: Get inspired by Covenant cities and regions!

Cities and regions of the Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy are taking action to mitigate climate change, adapt to its unavoidable consequences and provide their citizens with access to secure, sustainable and affordable energy.

Covenant of Mayors cities have all committed to developing Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans, for 2020 and/or 2030. In order to ensure their successful implementation despite strained public budgets, they are finding ways to mobilise the necessary investments.

In the Covenant of Mayors leaflet “How to finance your local climate & energy actions? Get inspired by Covenant of Mayors cities & regions!”, you will find financing success stories from cities and regions all across Europe. These examples are clustered in three sections:

  1. Unlocking investment opportunities through EU funding
  2. Setting up innovative financing schemes
  3. Supporting citizens’ initiatives.

We hope that you will enjoy your journey through these creative and ambitious financing actions, and that these can serve as an inspiration for your own energy and climate actions!
