Several high-level EU initiatives and EU projects focusing on support to local and regional authorities decided to join forces to offer a unique online programme for their stakeholders.
STEPING PLUS joined the main organizers, the Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy – Europe, C-Track 50 and Pentahelix H2020 projects, to organize the session dedicated to energy efficiency financing.
This was the closing session of 3, dealing also with long-term energy planning and multi-level governance topics. As a result, more than 200 different participants joining all 3 sessions, and about 100 participating in each session, coming from local and regional authorities, energy agencies, consultancies, academia, networks. The sessions received support across various branches of the European Commission, notably through inspiring and informative welcome addresses from DG REGIO, DG CLIMA, DG ENER, but also from the European Investment Bank.
Thanks to this successful conference new links have been created between participating stakeholders and additional awareness has been raised on opportunities for project development, implementation and financing and much more.
