2nd German Covenant Club meeting taking place today in Freiburg

The second meeting of the Covenant Club Germany is taking place today, 27 March, in Freiburg in the context of the congress on energy autonomous municipalities on the 27-28 March. This event is open to German Covenant of Mayors signatories and other local authorities and actors willing to get inspiration from signatories and exchange experiences.

The focus will be on the practical implementation of the Covenant commitments. To that purpose the director of the regional climate protection and energy agency KEA (Klimaschutz- und Energieagentur Baden-Württemberg GmbH) will inform about services of energy agencies supporting Covenant signatories. It will be followed by a workshop on SEAP elaboration.

In the afternoon, the participants have the opportunity to attend different workshops targeting municipalities that are willing to develop a local action plan or that are already implementing measures. The workshops will address the following topics: Involvement of citizens in local renewable energy projects, contracting for more energy efficiency, structured climate protection work in small and medium-sized municipalities with tight personnel and budget capacities.
