Cities as testbeds for the energy transition

Through projects Energy Cities challenge the way we deal with energy in all spheres of a city. They are a great opportunity to fund unheard-of urban practices and to experiment with other cities. The successful solutions that our projects produce are blueprints for peers facing similar challenges. Participation of cities in EU-funded projects is also essential to demonstrate policy-makers how the locally-based energy transition can be a reality.
