The ENERGY FOR MAYORS project was unique. It was the first IEE co-funded project which not only supported local authorities in engaging in local climate action, but also assisted their partners - Covenant Coordinators (CC) and Supporters (CS) - to optimize the support that they provide to municipalities. The project contributed to the successful implementation of the Covenant of Mayors and reaching EU climate & energy goals by achieving following results:

  • More than 500 people with improved capacity to act 
  • 180 new municipalities joining the Covenant of Mayors
  • 81 municipalities accompanied with their SEAP development and implementation
  • 30 Energy Days organized in the project regions
  • 15 partners from 8 countries closely cooperating
  • 8 pilot Energy Management Systems (EnMS) implemented
  • 7 National Woring Groups of CC&CS created
  • 1 cool Toolbox created to centralize useful resources
  • 1 Support Package created for CC&CS
  • 1 Strengthened Covenant of Mayors initiative, benefiting from this project
  • New Covenant Coordinators and Supporters created to help municipalities
  • Uncountable benefits for each community - from energy and financial savings to a better quality of life for citizens!
