Regional and local authorities need to precisely determine, control and demonstrate their sustainable energy and climate actions to increase their efficiency.
The EU-funded ENERGee Watch project will support peer-to-peer learning for municipal and regional associations and networks to understand how different sustainable energy and climate mitigation actions have been controlled and assessed.
The project will work on existing platforms and needs to estimate studies and establish a needs assessment and gaps identification to propose the best available solutions.
Consequently, it will select public authorities and their networks and match with a mentor of the seven partners of ENERGee Watch.
The learning programme consists of data collection, monitoring and verification, indicators for climate change adaptation and data display for final users.
The overall aim of ENERGee Watch is to enable peer to peer learning for regional and local authorities in order to precisely define, monitor and verify their sustainable energy and climate actions.
Its main target are associations and networks of cities and regions and the learning process will be focused on how different sustainable energy and climate mitigation projects have been monitored and evaluated.
Primarily, we will build on existing platforms and needs assessment surveys to perform a needs assessment and gaps identification with public bodies for learning and match these needs with available best practices.
Then, public authorities and their associations and agencies will be selected and matched with one of the seven mentors who are all partners of ENERGee Watch.
The learning program will be divided into four modules that include:
- data collection,
- monitoring and verification,
- indicators for adaption to climate change,
- data display, dissemination and validation by final users (local authorities).
ENERGee Watch will launch 4 modules per year (one per each topic, twelve in total) with a total of 72 participating mentees, which are all associations or networks which can distribute the knowledge further to their members.
The added value of ENERGee Watch is that the learning program is not limited to a capacity building process but instead enables networking and examples from practice shown on the field.
In the first step of each cycle - the masterclass - each participant can choose the learning objectives they want to accomplish in order that their progress can be tracked, and thus transparent standards will be set.
The learning program will ideally result in improved policies and MRV standards, as well as partnerships for innovative sustainable energy policies and MRV practices.
