CEMR's new publication: sustainable energy and local and regional government
The Council of the European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR), in collaboration with Energie-Cités and Climate Alliance, has published a guidebook "Save energy, save the climate, save money - A guide for local and regional authorities" aiming at helping municipalities and regions to use energy in a sustainable way.
In this guidebook you will find among others ten action steps that can help local and regional decision makers to start implementing sustainable energy policies. The publication also contains a pool of ideas, concrete measures and good practice examples in the different areas of planning, design, construction, running of facilities as well as in the provision of services.
How can local and regional governments take action to achieve sustainable energy? What are the links between local energy policies and climate protection? How to apply for European funding? How to get help; how to find ideas for action; and where to get support for exchanging experiences? Find the answers in this publication.
The publication "Save energy, save the climate, save money - A guide for local and regional authorities" is available in English.
