New Project: PATH2LC ­čĆó­čŹâ
Public Authorities together with a holistic network approach on the way to low-carbon municipalities
The achievement of Energy Union targets requires sound policy instruments and an ambitious implementation of climate protection and energy saving measures. Stakeholders in public authorities on local level are the crucial change agents for the implementation of energy transition. Against this background, the overarching objective of the PATH2LC project is to support policy makers and public authorities at local level in the transition process towards a low carbon society.
The PATH2LC project will foster exchange of existing knowledge and experiences among municipalities, enhance coordination among different administrative bodies within the municipalities, improve cooperation with local stakeholders and civil society and will equip stakeholders in public authorities with required planning and monitoring tools to implement transition roadmaps.
Five existing networks of municipalities in Italy, Greece, Portugal, the Netherlands and France are participating in the project.
The scientific side is covered by Fraunhofer ISI (evaluation), e-think and TU Vienna, Energy Cities and HESPUL. IREES coordinates the project.
