Our policy work

Our dedicated team monitors and shapes policy developments according to local authorities’ needs and priorities.

Our advocacy involves:

  • policy monitoring and analysis
  • policy influencing
  • advocacy partnerships

The cities behind our network set the tone and shape the European energy transition agenda. Whereas a municipality alone has little influence, together we can make local authorities’ voices heard at national and European level.

As part of the European Covenant of Mayors movement, cities and towns are taking energy and climate action to secure a better future for their citizens. With over 8,000 signatories, it has become a real political force proposing to renew the European project through local action. The initiative is an important political instrument for Energy Cities, as we initiated the movement and have been co-leading the Covenant of Mayors European Office since 2008.
