This publication is relying on five examples of European cities,that are frontrunners in the local energy transition and which have put a number on their investment needs by 2050 in order to succeed in their transition. Through our case studies of the cities Ghent, Frederikshavn, Bordeaux-Métropole, Sevilla and Tallinn, all signatories of the Covenant of Mayors-Europe initiative, we have identified the local investment needs for the energy transition in different geographical, socio-economic and sectorial circumstances.
How a shared energy transition can transform Europe’s energy landscape and tackle the root causes of strife in Europe today
