The Slovak National Covenant Networking Platform was launched on the 15th of November 2011 in Bratislava during a national conference called “Efficient Energy for Municipalities”.
This conference was held with the honorary patronage of Prime Minister of Slovak Republic Mrs. Iveta Radičová, Slovak Minister of Transport, Construction and Regional Development Ján Figeľ, Slovak Minister of Environment Jozef Nagy.
The conference was organised in close cooperation with the Union of Towns and Cities of Slovakia (UTCS), the Covenant of Mayors Office in Brussels and DG ENER.
The Platform gathers local authorities and key actors who have a common interest in creating and developing common priorities for action in terms of decentralised energy and territorial cohesion by fostering communication and exchanges in their efforts to achieve the EU ”3x20” objectives.
Objectives of the National Covenant Networking Platform:
- to promote the Covenant of Mayors initiative and its benefits among the Slovak municipalities;
- to ensure better communication, exchange and coherence of actions carried out by locala authorities (current and potential Covenant of Mayors signatories) on one hand, and key actors with a strong potential to influence the national and local energy policy on the other hand;
- to create at the national level a Platform for discussion and for the preparation of new actions that are necessary to boost the Covenant of Mayors implementation;
- to develop a national Covenant Action.
CITENERGO coordinates the National Platform activities in cooperation with Coordination Committee members.
