Lessons learnt challenges to face

Lessons learnt– Challenges to face

  • Familiarization is the key!

    • Need to obtain the background and specific information on the visiting regions – identify the differences; experience cannot be directly transferred from one country / region to another

  • Continuous capacity building is needed!

    • Importance of ensuring the capacity building activities after the end of the project => Memorandum of Understanding between partners is the answer

  • Energy data is a common problem

    • Need to engage energy providers and energy agencies, provide incentives, seek political support

  • Financing SEAPs

    • Identify financial mechanisms, experience transfer, seek for European and national funds. Work together


Wp 3 seap plus work towards energy stakeholders

WP 3: SEAP-PLUS worktowards energy stakeholders

Main targets:

  • Raising awareness and committing regional and local energy stakeholders

  • Memorandum of Cooperationwith energy stakeholders

  • Developing recommendations how to successfully involve energy stakeholders


Raising awareness and committing regional stakeholders

Raising awareness andcommitting regional stakeholders

  • A data base of arround 950 energy stakeholders from has been built up

  • Energy stakeholders receive regular information about CoM, SEAP implementation work, best practices via newsletters and personal contacts

  • 80 bilateral meetings with energy stakeholders in all project regions

  • 8 energy stakeholder workshops were organised (200 participants)

    Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with energy stakeholders

  • A common MoC basic text was developed by SEAP-PLUS project team

  • 7 MoCswith energy stakeholders were signed in Latvia and Sweden

    • access for municipalities to reliable energy data

    • cooperation regarding research and data analysis

    • cooperation on monitoring and improvement of data quality


Wp 4 challenges of local governments lg mobilisation assistance

WP 4: Challenges of Local Governments‘ (LG) mobilisation & assistance

  • Motivate – European sustainable energy policies and initiatives vs. national framework conditions

  • Explain – funding opportunities to CoM signatories vs. limited staff capacity and varying application procedures

  • Provide – guidance to technical staff within the SEAP process vs. need of interdepartmental involvement

  • Facilitate – cooperation between LG and energy provider vs. potentially conflicting interests

  • Involve – all governmental levels and relevant energy stakeholders vs. need of different forms of involvement (information, consultation, cooperation)


Technical assistance to lgs

Technical assistance to LGs

Related performance and achievements:

  • 12 reports on technical help and SEAP PLUS promotion (1 per region) – pending

  • 65 SEAPs prepared and submitted as a result of SEAP PLUS – currently overachieved: 80 LGs receive SEAP support (70 SEAP development / 10 SEAP improvement)

  • 12 proposals in SEAP related funding mechanisms prepared and submitted– 1 done, 11 to go

  • 4 learning partners become CoM Supporter – 2 done, 2 to go

Importance of iee programme for austrian municipalities and caa

Importance of IEE programme for Austrian municipalities and CAA

  • Bringing CoM topics directly to mayors and citizens - CoM Awareness Building and CoM Public Relations through events, presentations, websites, flyers and newsletters

  • Possibility of European cooperation between municipalities, towns, regions and organizations regarding EE and RES topics

  • Knowledge transfer and transfer of new methods and technologies through pilot projects which can be rolled out afterwards in the regions (twinning partnerships, best practices)

  • IEE as basis for installation of and development for a sustainable CAA CoM-Expertise. Positioning of CAA as CoM Competence Centre for IEE climate and energy topics for municipalities

  • Information and networkingfor municipalities

  • Method of cofinancing for EE and RES pilot projects
