The Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy is the world's largest movement for local and regional climate and energy actions. It brings together over 10.000 cities all over Europe, committing together to reaching climate neutrality by 2050.
The Cities Energy Saving Sprint is a joint initiative of the European Commission, the Covenant of Mayors – Europe and the European Committee of the Regions to support cities in taking measures that will immediately reduce their energy consumption.
As part of the REPowerEU plan, increasing energy savings is key to prepare for the winter. The factsheet: Supporting cities to save energy to the Commission’s Save Gas for a Safe Winter recognises the crucial role that cities play in reducing energy consumption whilst supporting their community in facing the current energy crisis.
The Covenant of Mayors – Europe Office continues supporting local authorities in their efforts to undertake emergency saving measures by providing, among others, opportunities to exchange and share experiences, to collect good practices and energy saving advice, and to liaise with partners and initiatives.
Saving energy has been an integral part of mid-term and long-term local climate and energy planning. The current energy crisis requires that these efforts be reinforced, while calling for emergency energy saving measures.
