Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energies: Local Governance

Signatory municipalities to the Convenant of Mayors and regional coordinators have to confront common governance problems related to the Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAP) such as:

  1. Assessment of SEAP measures.

  2. Correction of the design of monitoring reports.

  3. Benchmarking that shall enable local authorities to define public policy intermediaries in order to give support to municipalities.


This project proposal aims to develop a project in the framework of the H2020, LIFE+, MED, SUDOE and/or POCTEFA programmes and implement a tool to respond to SEAP governance-related problems.


  • Mapping of specific features, needs and available information on SEAP governance.

  • To promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences.

  • To prepare the drafting of proposals to be submitted to European programmes – i.e. Horizon 2020 and others.
