Climate-mainstreaming municipal budgets

Climate-mainstreaming municipal budgets

Taking from fossil fuel economy to reinvest in local sustainable communities

This guidebook aims to address the lack of awareness of the role of public finance in the energy transition within municipal administrations. It does so in anticipation of declining local budgets, raising the question of how cities can efficiently channel finances to achieve their climate goals.
It contains a collection of examples and tools, which can help local authorities align their expenditure and investments with the Paris Agreement objective.

Project review of five european local authorities

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.
