Project focus (I)
• Support transition to 100% sustainable energy communities
by:
• achieving significant change in public management approaches
• achieving sustainable energy solutions at community level
• Work with levels of government closest to citizens:
• building local government capacity,
• learning from experiences,
• encouraging political leadership,
• Identify opportunities for change: political, administrative,
economic, social and environmental.
Project focus (II)
Europe by night
Cities are ...
.. where
quality of life
is expected
and can be offered
1.600 Urban areas
in Europe with
more than 50.000
inhabitants

Objectives & Results (I)
• Develop capacity to strengthen role of local and
provincial governments in the sustainable energy
transition – using the integrated management approach
• LEAP wizard as a decision-making support tool
• Peer-to-peer exchanges, study visits, workshops, staff trainee
programmes, individual city training workshops
• Create instruments that build on state-of-the-art Local
Energy Action Plan (LEAP) developments
• 30 exemplary case studies and analyses on replicable factors and
cost-benefit ratios – added to the LEAP wizard
8
Objectives (II)
• Guide Local Energy Action Plan (LEAP) implementation
in selected learning communities.
• Energy guidance for the learners with supporting instruments
• 5 new LEAPs (SEAPs)
• Make results widely available through the European
Sustainable Cities and Towns Campaign (ESCTC).
• Web portal to centralise information and instruments for SEC
development
• Widespread European disseminiation: final brochure and report
• CO2 reduction and improved community resilience of
energy-relevant infrastructure

Step 1
1) BASELINE REVIEW
• Conduct a Baseline Emissions
Inventory
• Energy Status Report (energy sources,
energy needs, energy security)
• Adaptation Assessment
• Establish a vision* (overall direction
e.g. to 2020, 2050)
Baseline review
• Requires input from actors outside Local Governments (LGs)
• Identify boundaries, themes
• Refer to legislative context relative to energy sustainability
• How to measure?
• Indicators: beware of over-complexity and over-simplicity
• Collect data and deal with data gaps
Step 2
2) TARGET SETTING
• Organisational & financial aspects
(form team e.g. under supervision of
Mayor, involve team in target setting)
• Set CO2 / GHG reduction target for
municipality and community.
• Set specific energy savings & RE %
target per sector
• Estimate costs and expected CO2e
reduction per measure
• Set LEAP / SEAP timeframe (e.g. 3
to 5 years, 10 years)
Target setting
• Trade off between vision and feasible (be ambitious, yet realistic)
• Involvement and agreement by stakeholders to achieve ownership
• Lessons learned: If you start, start small to allow adaptation of plan
• Set priorities through participation exploration
Step 3
3) POLITICAL COMMITMENT
• Conduct political debate
• Obtain Council decision – approval of targets
(also for LEAP / SEAP)
• Outline LEAP / SEAP – targets and measures
• Communicate this with citizens
(relevant - step 1 through 5)
Political commitment
• True involvement for achieving comprehensive programme, not
isolated pilots
• Integration with other urban policies
Step 4
4) IMPLEMENTATION AND MONITORING
• Define key actions / measures
• Identify activity leader and involved department /
individual / company
• Implement (start / end date)
• Involve stakeholders
• Communicate with citizens
• Ongoing monitoring and taking (easy)
corrective actions
Implementation and monitoring
• Measures qualitatively and quantitatively
• Assign responsibilities
• Regular and valuable feedback to actors feeding the system
• Corrective measures
Step 5
5) EVALUATION AND REPORTING
• Collect results
• Analyse progress - development
towards targets, problems, new opportunities
• Evaluate process - effective?
• Prepare feedback for next cycle
• Communicate with citizens
Evaluation and reporting
• Value judgement
• Where’s additionality of plan?
• Evaluate regularly, not a one-off
• Quantitative analysis of each indicator
• Possible organisational changes
