Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP)
Regional and municipal energy management strategic planning
- significant (up to 5-10%) savings in the local government’s budget
- establishes the acquisition of EU funds (the aim is the energy rationalization)
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.
