CitiEnGov - Cities for a Good Energy Governance

Programme priority2. Cooperating on low-carbon strategies in CENTRAL EUROPE
Programme priority specific objective2.2 To improve territorial based low-carbon energy planning strategies and policies supporting climate change mitigation
Project index numberCE496
Name of the lead partner organisationSIPRO Development Agency-Ferrara
Project duration36 months
Start date01.06.2016
End date31.05.2019

The idea which is at the heart of the project concept is that energy is an horizontal policy, which involves all other ordinary policies, consequently it influences a complex socio-economic system. Given this assumption the role public authorities can play, especially Cities, is to act as a “facilitator” of the energy transformation process, playing a crucial role in coordinating approaches to formulate and plan low-carbon energy strategies. This shall be achieved through the setting up of energy units or the empowerment of those already established by Cities, mainly providing them with tools and strategies but also appointing them an effective role within PA, representing an important change in relation to the current situation of most central European regions. The key to success is the weaving together of individual low carbon energy strategies, creating an integrated framework of policies and programs that becomes more than the sum of its parts. The project aims to improve the capacity of public administrations to implement new energy planning strategies through a new comprehensive concept based on:  the acknowledgement of a political mandate for energy, the definition of a working group with roles and activities, a real horizontal service made of experts about energy issues enabling the efficient realization of the foreseen actions and results. This unit should integrate local and regional low carbon energy strategies (including SEAP monitoring and development), improving the regional/local energy performance through the implementation of transnational pilot applications, ranging from the realization of supporting actions to implement a CitiEnGov Tool, to the development of coordinated solutions to improve the RES production. The tools implemented transnationally and their coordinated management within the public institutions, should contribute eventually to the outline of financing and fiscal policies aimed at the enhancement of the initiatives for climate change mitigation.
