COOPENERGY – Multi-level governance in sustainable energy planning

Coopenergy is a project co-funded by the European programme “Intelligent Energy Europe” from 2013-2016. It seeks to foster a more collaborative approach between regional and local public authorities for more coherence in their respective sustainable energy plans.

In summer 2013, the project sought, through a Europe-wide online survey – examples of how local and regional authorities across Europe are effectively collaborating with each other to develop and deliver sustainable energy action plans (SEAPS) and initiatives.

From over 150 submissions to the online survey, 60 of the best examples of collaboration were documented into Best Practices, to inspire other regions and local authorities to collaborate more effectively together on sustainable energy planning.

.

2 of these best practices feature the following two ENERGee Watch members:

  • OREGES (Rhône-Alpes regional energy and GHG emissions observatory)
  • OPTEER (Franche-Comté regional observatory for energy, climate and air)

 

Find the rest of the 60 Best Practices, as well as a Guidebook on Multi-Level Governance, and other resources by joining the Collaboration Platform – by clicking on the images below:
