Energiewende - energy transition

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The ground-breaking initiative, that will support municipalities (local authorities) and their groupings from the EU-27 and UK to develop investment concepts for accelerating the implementation of their energy and climate action plans, launches its first call for applications: 25 May 2020 to 2 October 2020   The initial duration of the call (2 months) has been extended due to the extraordinary circumstances resulting from Covid-19 outbreak.

ENERGY TRANSITION: SHARING RESPONSIBILITIES, CHANGING GOVERNANCE Our zero-carbon future is built through partnerships that are wide-ranging, both in scope and scale. They will have to be forged between and within territories, between urban and rural areas, between city administration and citizens, between national and local governments, so as to create truly local alliances. Cities and regions beautifully capture what the European Union needs to be more: democratic, sovereign and united.
