Energy Cities prepared a review of projects undertaken in the cities of Paris, Malmö, Barcelona, Bristol and Brussels-Capital that received support from the ELENA-EIB facility. The aim of this study is to identify the ways in which technical assistance programmes such as ELENA-EIB can help unlock investment in cities. The projects we reviewed cover a wide array of sectors, from public building refurbishment to public transport or renewable energy production.
Between March 2014 and February 2017, eleven Energy Cities’ members carry out peer coaching activities aiming at developing the expertise of local staff and at replicating two proved financing schemes tested by the cities of Stuttgart (DE) and Delft (NL) in learning local authorities.
This financing scheme « Intracting » makes it possible to implement cost-effective energy saving measures regardless of the municipality’s budget ary constraints, therefore contributing to improving the municipality’s financial situation.
The Display Campaign is the first and most widespread European Campaign to encourage municipalities to publicly display environmental performances of their municipal buildings. More than 13,000 buildings are labelled with the Display poster showing their energy and water performances as well as green house gas emissions.
Our network’s know-how is meant to be spread and shared with those who do, like us, aim for a radical shift in the energy system. In this section we have gathered free studies, reports and recommendations that we have authored or co-authored. Each publication will inspire and guide you in your energy transition work.
