COOPENERGY

 

What is COOPENERGY?

The project: Sustainable Energy Plans at a regional and local level are often developed in isolation of each other. This can lead to duplication, wasted resources and missed opportunities to save time, money and minimise negative impacts.

COOPENERGY seeks to improve connectivity between regional and local government with the development of collaborative working and delivery of joint initiatives at its core to maximise positive outcomes and accelerate reduction in greenhouse gases.

Project aims: The COOPENERGY project aims to help local and regional public authorities work together to deliver action plans in partnership, through developing multi-level governance agreements. These agreements will ensure regional and local authorities are working together effectively to deliver on the EU 20/20/20 targets. 

This will be achieved through:

·         Identifying and learning from the good practice of others. An interactive good practice database will be produced with examples from across Europe

·         Developing and testing local multi-level agreements to inform future action

·         Implementing joint actions and solutions, tackling challenging issues and problems

·         Working with others to transfer learning

·         Celebrating success and sharing experience across the partnership and across Europe
