The connecting member must undertake to give the whole town a fixed carbon dioxide emission at least 20 % by 2020. To fulfil the commitment the Municipality is required to prepare its SEAP (Sustainable Energy Action Plan) – in accordance with the CoM guidance – and submit it to the CoM Secretariat within a year.

The SEAP is suitable to use the subsidy from the ELENA program provided by the European Investment Bank for preparation and market-funded financial solutions and projects based on energy saving.
