POTEs – Ordinary Energy Transition Pioneers

The POTEs concept emerged simultaneously in two French regions – Franche-Comté and Bourgogne – in 2013 during the national debate on the energy transition, following […]

Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy

Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy

Together towards sustainable, climate-resilient and vibrant cities.

Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy

After the adoption, in 2008, of the 2020 EU Climate and Energy Package, the European Commission launched the Covenant of Mayors to endorse and support the efforts deployed by local authorities in the implementation of sustainable energy policies.

The Energy Future of our Cities

IMAGINE

Energy Cities started the IMAGINE initiative in 2006 as a follow-up of a discussion with member cities interested in the long-term perspective and a visioning approach of energy and territorial issues.

Transatlantic Multi-stakeholder Dialogues for the Local Energy Transition

Energy Allies

We are witnessing how local governments in the U.S. and Europe are rallying to respond to the climate challenge and are driving the transition to a sustainable low carbon future. Showing that citizen and business participation makes climate and energy policies more effective might inspire others to follow suit. That, in turn, could make it easier for national leaders to act more forcefully.

Municipal action, public engagement: routes to local energy ownership

mPOWER

When it comes to managing the energy transition the need for municipally-owned energy has never been clearer. In recent years we have seen some successes of local energy ownership. However, the sharing of these experiences has been limited, and they have tended to remain local and specific.

Showcasing energy transition actions on both sided of the Rhine

Franco-German Energy Transition Week

The objective of this project is to strengthen the Franco-German collaboration on energy transition at local level and involve citizens in this process through a raising awareness campaign.

Accelerating Condominium Energy Retrofitting

ACE-Retrofitting

43% of the European population lives in condominiums/multi-occupancy apartment blocks, which are primarily of low energy performance. How can cities accelerate the energy retrofitting of these buildings?

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.
