Training Platform for Local Authorities

Training Materials

Local Authorities play a key role in climate change mitigation, but as generally assumed, mitigation is not sufficient since climate change is already taking place. Therefore adaptation measures must be considered as well. The two options approach (mitigation and adaptation) in the energy planning process is thus essential.

The SEAP_Alps methodology for Mitigation and Adaptation is developed on the basis of the Covenant of Mayors' Sustainable Energy Action Plan and the European Climate Adaptation Platform. (PDF)

On 31 May 2015 the SEAP_Alps project will be finalized, and the partnership looks back to numerous fruitful results and good cooperation. The objective of the project was to promote energy planning at local level, boosting the capacity of project partners in supporting small and medium municipalities in the drafting of Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs).

Signatories of the Covenant of Mayors voluntarily commit to increasing energy efficiency and the use of sustainable energy sources in their municipality. More than 6000 local authorities are part of the European initiative. They do not only use the political signal strength at the European level, but also instruments free of charge to achieve their ambitious climate objectives.

Energy efficiency of public buildings contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions and is one the measures in the preparation of Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAP). In the framework of the project SEAP Alps the measures will be achieved together with local authorities, stakeholders and energy agencies. By 2020 municipalities will provide an enormous contribution to the reduction of CO2.
