  • The local energy strategy and SEAP’s (where existing) objectives; Energy related priorities and existing potentials (tailored to the local needs)

  • Thematic areas for the capacity building workshops, suitable for the municipality technical staff/employees

Discussion Topics:

  • The specific pilot cases; solutions that would work for the local community

  • Potential obstacles for the efficient implementation of the projects

  • Legislation issues

  • How to identify appropriate funding sources and other financial issues - the mostly raised issue; how to have solutions that can be partly, if not 100%, self funded

  • Efficient ways for awareness raising – citizens involvement.

  • Progress of pilot cases

  • LAGs REPORT


5 th steering committee meeting cyprus 11 14 cyprus 201 4

Identified Opportunities

  • Reach funding by connecting the pilot project to the local SEAP

  • Challenging the active engagement of LAGs a number of synergies will foster the local energy strategies by joining forces and expertise

  • Involving the local stakeholders facilitates the implementation of local plans through consensus and support by the local communities

  • Activation of citizens

Identified Opportunities

  • Foster the local businesses could be achieved due to the pilot projects implementation

  • RES, Energy efficiency investments and the pilot projects implementation could create new employment opportunities

  • Stimulation of innovation, employment and economic growth through implementation of pilot projects

  • Networking with EU bodies

  • Public Private Partnerships

Common Barriers

  • Existing Legislation does not facilitate the implementation of pilot projects

  • Difficulties in finding data and information useful for the implementation of pilot actions

Common Barriers

  • Reach consensus for the development and implementation of energy related projects that may affect the habits and specific interests of citizens or different actors involved

  • Technical capacity to decide on the most appropriate technologies and to design value for money projects

  • Lack of strategy, in some cases, prevent pilot projects to reach the final stage
