|About ENERGY FOR MAYORS|
The aim of the ENERGY for MAYORS project is to contribute to the successful implementation of the Covenant of Mayors, a European initiative for climate protection, through:
ENERGY FOR MAYORS project consortium
The ENERGY for MAYORS project is based on a consideration that Covenant Coordinators (CC) and Supporters (CS) play vital role in Covenant implementation but they need guidance in order to be successful and effectively support Covenant signatories, in particular small and medium municipalities who lack necessary skills and resources to fulfill Covenant requirements. The project assumes building CC and CS capacity through organization of specific trainings, development and dissemination of a toolbox, exchange of experience and networking.
Within the frameworks of the project also municipalities will be supported. Project partners from 10 regions, who are Covenant Coordinators or Supporters themselves, will assist around 70 municipalities in the development and implementation of their Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) by involving local key stakeholders as well as by organising a series of workshops in each of the regions.
Additionally, the ENERGY for MAYORS project will test the combination of developing a SEAP with implementing an Energy Management System (EMS) according to the new ISO 50001 standard in selected pilot municipalities, with the intention to set up a standard for a monitoring system for SEAPs and contributing to the structuring of internal and external communication.
